Dir. Craig Gillespie, Starring: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
OK, given the troika of Twilight, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries, you’re probably sick of the whole ‘vampire craze’. But don’t overlook this film. Directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), this remake centers on Charley Brewster, played by Anton Yelchin—a teenager in a tiny Las Vegas suburb who, along with his nerdy friend, Ed (Superbad’s Christopher Mintz-Plasse), begins to suspect that his creepy neighbor, Jerry (Colin Farrell), is a vampire. Farrell has a ball with his deliciously over-the-top character, and the sexy film also boasts—Hugo, aside—the best usage of 3D this year, with blood, fire, and ashes exploding into viewer’s faces. And former Dr. Who star David Tennant steals every scene he’s in as a Criss Angel-like Vegas magician-cum-vampire slayer. Sadly, it grossed under $20 million at the North American box office.

No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”—Neil Gaiman (via wolvesorsheep)
