Scrape me off the floor with a spatula! I never knew David Tennant — aka the much-loved and respected 10th Doctor on Doctor Who — could look so grungy and bad-to-the-bone. To all the ladies out there: you’re welcome for this.
Aside from various appearances on British TV, global audiences haven’t seen or heard much from Tennant since he departed Doctor Who in early 2010 (to make way for Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor). Fright Night is a remake of a 1985 cult classic about a high schooler (played by Anton Yelchin — the new Star Trek‘s Chekov) who discovers that his new neighbor Jerry (Colin Ferrell) is really a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Christopher Mintz-Plasse co-stars as Yelchin’s best friend, Imogen Poots is the requisite girlfriend, and Tennant rounds out the cast as a macabre stage magician who knows a thing or two about slaying vamps. Expect loads of blood, gore, action, and dark comedy.
Just imagine if we could turn this guy loose on all those emo vampires from Twilight…
