    It ends up getting a surprising number of things right.

    As in the earlier film, this one dances always at the edge of comedy. It especially has fun with the Rules of Vampire Behavior.

    Fright is way too quick on its feet to be slowed by clichés. David Tennant seizes McDowall's role as Peter Vincent, now a Criss Angel-style clown vampire slayer. Christopher Mintz-Plasse was born to play a high school nerd.

    A steady supply of spiky humor and a game cast keep this cooking most of the way, though the pacing could have been tighter and the film seems as if it's about to end two or three times before it actually does.
