Episode 321: Fright Night (2011)
Hey, friends! It's time for a spooktacular new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, and this week, Scott and Josh are headed to the Las Vegas Strip for a scarifying discussion all about the 2011 remake of Fright Night, starring Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, David Tennant, and more. They're joined by friend of the show Louis Peitzman of Buzzfeed to talk all about the remake's presentation of toxic masculinity, why the movie struggled at the box office in the summer of 2011, the legacy of the late Anton Yelchin, and more! Is this better than the original? Is its faux-Children of Men car chase a successful stylistic choice? And what's so fun about Imogen Poots' name? Find out on the new episode!
