Fright Night

(R) ★★★☆☆

Hey Twihards—real vampires don’t sparkle in the sunlight, they watch Bravo reality shows in the desert. At least, they do in Fright Night, a funny and frothy (if not truly frightening) remake of the 1985 vamp-camp classic. Colin Farrell has a ball in the showy role of Jerry, a creature of the night who terrorizes a Las Vegas suburb. And up-and-comer Anton Yelchin makes an adorable foil for the forces of darkness. Despite its tepid terror, this Fright’s got some bite.

Conan the Barbarian

By Tribune Media Services

This 3-D reboot of the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie can be best described as 112 minutes of “Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh!” Our new Conan (Jason Momoa) is ripped out of his mother’s womb on the battlefield. His dad (Ron Perlman) trains him well. Conan must save the nations of Hyboria and protect the beautiful Tamara (Rachel Nichols) from the man who slew his father, the evil Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang). The film revels in its beheadings, blood splurches and “Aaarrgghhs.” Not terrible, but not that great either.
