First Look at Peter Vincent in the Upcoming Fright Night Remake


As a huge fan of the original “Fright Night”, the idea of a remake makes me a little anxious. I think it’s a near-perfect film, powered by a wonderfully quirky performance by legendary actor Roddy McDowall. However, after seeing this interesting pair of images from the forthcoming reimagining, I’m definitely a little intrigued. Instead of a bumbling horror host, Peter Vincent (David Tennant) is apparently a flashy Las Vegas magician whose show is entitled “Fright Night”. Is this a good idea? That really depends on how director Craig Gillespie handles the material. I’ll keep my fingers.

“Fright Night”, starring David Tennant, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, should hit theaters on October 7th, 2011. Thanks to for the heads up.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)
