Overview

Composer Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Clash of the Titans) provides director Craig Gillespie's 2011 reboot of the 1985 vampire horror-comedy Fright Night with copious amounts of (slightly tongue in cheek) thrills and chills that offer up a dark, sinister, and playful homage to classic horror themes. Opening with a surging, Elfman-esque action cue that resolves itself into a fun and macabre, pipe organ-led crescendo by the final cut, Djawadi occasionally sinks into the quicksand of percussive bombast overload, but subtle nods to John Carpenter ("We Could Rock This Evil Thing Together") and Bernard Herrmann ("That's a Mighty Big Cross"), as well as an overall sense of Lost Boys/Scream nostalgia, helps to keep things amiable, despite all of the carnage.
