Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with
the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s
so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).
But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves
in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not
quite right—yet no one, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to
notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an
unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his
neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth,
Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig
Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
