Storyline

Jared Martin moves next door to the Hansetts, along with his hot motorcycle and eerie, ill-tempered dog. Although everyone else in the neighborhood takes an instant liking to him, Loren Hansett can't get over the bad vibes her new neighbor gives her. She starts to spy on his nocturnal activities and comes to believe that a recent killing might the work of a werewolf who happens to be her new neighbor. Her internet surfing provides a lot of collaborative detail but everyone but her friend Steven dismiss her story as teen-aged fantasy. Fearing for her life, she convinces Steven to take her to a gun shop to buy silver bullets in a gun shop, where their neighbor's supernatural dog attacks. When she dispatches the beast, her actions get the attention of Redd Tucker, a washed-up TV hunting show host to believe her as well. When Steven is attacked by the werewolf and Loren's brother goes missing, she and Redd team up to kill the lycanthrope before he can finish them both off. Written by David Bassler

Never cry "Fright Night".
13 January 2010 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

Like others have already mentioned, this straight-to-TV b-grade production (yes a Sci-fi feature) is 1985 "Fright Night" all over again… but this time for this generation the spin is it's a werewolf next door. The plot structure is rather similar, as the differences go to some certain key factors being switched about and having a witless script tagged to it. One thing though; as the down-to-earth main character comes to the realisation that she's living next to a werewolf it comes off rather forced and rashly quick, compared to obsessed horror nut protagonist in "Fright Night". Nonetheless it's very average, but I still found it rivetingly disposable, despite how derivative it happens to be and exactly how goofy (intentional or not) it plays out. Actually the mockery vibe felt more deliberate than not. What made it even more enjoyable were the three performances of (a dependably confident) Nina Dobrev (who's decked in a sports bra for the film's climax), Peter Sebbings (who's gleaming presence seems to fit) and definitely Kevin "Hercules" Sorbo amusingly sending up his TV-star based hunter character. It wasn't great acting, but they're fitting by having fun and it shows in the film's energy. Which was needed because the direction and visual styling was on the plain side, as the attempted jump scares were weakly executed and the restricted make-up effects looked quite shonky. They do throw around (that's literally) a bit of blood splatter. Fragmented editing is used around the beastie and its attacks. In some scenes you see bits of it, or a simple silhouette and shadow. However there were a few scenes were the angle of the camera placed, had me thinking it looked like a bear. Nothing special, but a decent time-waster if you can look past its been-there-done that story.
