Fright Night - a re-imagining of the 1985 horror classic were teenaged Charley Brewster discovers his new neighbor Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood.Colin Ferrel smolders as Dracula and David Tennent reinvents Peter Vincent into a snarling, shirtless goth. My initial impression of this new reincarnation of Fright Night can be summed up in one word – yum. In theaters August 19.
One Day – How did I miss the novel written by David Nichols? It will be added to my Kindle collection tonight. As per the website: After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess of Across the Universe) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground. For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives.
I have an eerily personal synchronicity with this movie. I am looking forward to reading the novel and watching this movie. In theaters August 19th – a day before my birthday
