* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When Charley starts testing Jerry to see if he can enter the house uninvited, even to just grab some beers from across the threshold, Jerry figures it out immediately. [[And gives Charley no time to prepare himself further, blowing up Charley's house moments later.]] [[spoiler: Subverted by the end of the film, however, where he shows Charley exactly where to stake him.]]

Added DiffLines:
* PragmaticAdaptation: An odd twist on it, as both special effects and the subject matter have drastically changed since the original. Aside from Vincent being a stage magician instead of a horror show host, this version of Jerry revels in being a sexual predator, and Evil Ed's HoYay is so great even he comments on it eventually. Such frank treatment of sexuality would have been unthinkable in the 1985 version.

Vampire Invitation was renamed per TRS decision.
* MustBeInvited: ** Jerry makes several attempts to get one. When he fails, [[CombatPragmatist he simply blows up the Brewsters' house]]. -->'''Jerry:''' "Don't need an invitation if there's no house." ** Ed finds out the hard way that this trope doesn't work if a home has been abandoned. ** They use [[LoopholeAbuse technicalities]] to their advantage, like [[spoiler:casually inviting a deliveryman in for an unusually late night package.]]

** Except for his performing a voluntary [[spoiler: vampirization on Ed]], which looks like a baptization.

** RealityEnsues: Peter Vincent points out that leather trousers really don't "breathe", and spends a good amount of time pulling on them to get comfortable. Although shirtless David Tennant in leather trousers grabbing his crotch is also pretty effective Fanservice.

Not an example of the trope.
''Fright Night'' (2011) is a remake of the cult [[Film/FrightNight1985 1985 horror-comedy hit]], starring Colin Farrell, AntonYelchin, Creator/DavidTennant, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. It drops the Peter Vincent BecomingTheMask story and turns Charley into a Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}-type character, with Jerry resembling both Spike (suave and cool) and Angelus (loves to kill and psychologically torture his victims), and Peter as a Vegas showman instead of a former actor.

* SettingUpdate: The remake is set in [[VivaLasVegas Las Vegas]], with Peter Vincent turned into a Criss Angel-esque figure. As Charley and Ed both point out, it makes a very good place for vampires (lots of people work night shift, people move in and out of there all the time).

* VivaLasVegas: Couldn't move the setting here without once scene like this at the very end.

Call Back is when the events happen in the same continuity. Moved to the appropriate trope.
* CallBack: ** To the original, among them: *** Jerry eating an apple. *** "You've got to have faith." *** "You're so cool, Brewster!" *** "Welcome to ''Fright Night''. For real." *** [[spoiler: Vampire Amy's]] GameFace looks like a CGI version of [[spoiler: the original Vampire Amy's]] GameFace. ** To its sequel: *** The stake gun being similar to the one used in ''Fright Night II''. *** Charley and Amy being chased by Ed in Peter's lair is extremely similar to a scene in ''Fright Night II'', in which the characters are chased through the library by a werewolf. ** Just when you think they've turned Peter Vincent into a Criss Angel clone, he pulls off the facial hair and wig, resembling something much closer to Roddy [=McDowall's=] character (albeit with some Mick Jagger rubbed on).

* DecompositeCharacter: Ed fills pretty much the same role he did in the original, with the added bonus of being the one who gets Charlie involved instead of the reverse. However, his personality's been given a radical overhaul to make him more normal and sympathetic, and his over-the-top mannerisms and sneering, jerkish personality have been removed and placed in new character Mark.
