“Teenager Charley Brewster (Yelchin) guesses that his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is a vampire responsible for a string of recent deaths. When no one he knows believes him, he enlists Peter Vincent (Tennant), the opportunistic host of his favorite TV show, to help him take down Jerry and his guardian.” – IMDB
My thoughts: FUCK. YES. This is me geeking out hardcore. Campy horror movies + Anton Yelchin + The Doctor? You cannot be serious. Clearly, the heavens have opened up and given us this movie. I’m excited to see Colin Farrell in a role that isn’t so typical of him (you know, hardass Irish man with rippling abs and a bad boy look). This is a must see for myself.
