Fright Night (2011)
Director: Craig Gillespie
Charley (Anton Yelchin) is a high-school senior who's in with the "in" crowd and dating Amy (Imogen Poots), the most sought-after gal on campus. But trouble enters his world in the form of Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell), a charismatic new neighbor. After witnessing some unusual activity next door, Charley concludes that Jerry is a vampire. Of course, no one believes him. After seeking advice from illusionist Peter Vincent (David Tennant), Charley sets out to destroy Jerry himself.

- Peter Vincent is named after two horror icons, Peter Cushing and Vincent Price.
- In early stages of development, Heath Ledger was considered for the role of Jerry, but he passed away in January of 2008.
- Of the principal cast, Anton Yelchin and Christopher Mintz-Plasse were the only ones who didn't need to adopt an American accent.
- Counting flashback footage, Chris Sarandon is the only actor to appear in all three Fright Night films. In the original Fright Night (1985), he plays the role of Jerry. In the 2011 remake, he has a cameo as the man who hits the Brewsters' car and is subsequently bitten by Jerry.
- The props department included many Doctor Who (2005) references into the Peter Vincent apartment set (for example, Gallifreyan writing - the Doctor's native language - on certain items), as a homage to actor David Tennant, who was playing Peter Vincent and previously played the Tenth Doctor. The majority of these references are not visible to the audience.
