Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) is a teenager living in a suburb of Las Vegas, Nevada, who discovers that a new neighbor has moved in next door to him. Charley's old best friend, "Evil" Ed Lee (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), informs him that many fellow students have gone missing. When Charley goes home after school, his mother Jane Brewster (Toni Collette) introduces him to Jerry (Colin Farrell), their new neighbor. Charley becomes fed-up and angry with Ed after he claims that Jerry is a vampire. Charley tells him that he's crazy and that he doesn't want to be friends anymore.
While feeling deeply angry, hurt and upset on his way home, Ed is confronted by Jerry. Jerry claims that he has been watching Ed and has been aware of Ed watching him. After a short fight and chase Jerry gradually exploits and manipulates Ed's weakness of his emotional state with his former friend and his peers. Jerry convinces Ed into believing that his life would be much better if he was a vampire. Ed momentarily surcomes and willingly allows Jerry to bite him. The next day, Charley realizes that Ed is missing and decides to investigate.
