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.

Outsized Alter Ego

Backstage at the Clarion’s Wolf Theater I met what looked like a member of the stage crew. The man had a shaved head, sweatpants and a flannel shirt with cut-off sleeves that revealed beefy tattooed arms. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined his imminent transformation. “Can you give me about 10 minutes?” Scott Weston asked demurely as I sat down in the dressing room.
