Fright Night - Craig Gillespie Defends Gory Fright Night Remake

Film-maker Craig Gillespie has defended the stomach-churning gore in his upcoming remake of Fright Night, insisting it's "fun" to watch.
The director helms the new version of the classic 1985 vampire movie, starring Colin Farrell and David Tennant, and he's warned viewers to prepare for a high-level of blood-curdling scenes.
He tells Empire magazine, "We didn't want to back away from gore. If you're going to do a horror film, you have to go for it, I think. There's a lot of blood and gore - some of it is kind of horrific, but some of it is kinda fun and gross. Some of it is a mix of the two. But if you're going to have vampires sucking blood, you're going to have to show it!"

Oh well. I had intended to go see it, but now I guess I'll stick to just looking at pictures of David Tennant from the film. He's the only point of interest for me anyway and I can't stand gory films. Hell, old 'Night Stalker' episodes can make my skin crawl! Thank goodness I know to avoid this!
