Let The Right One In (Lat den rate komma in) (2008) Film Review

lettherightoneinbdcap1_original

A young boy being bullied at school makes friends with a new girl that he sees only at night in the courtyard of his apartment block. Eventually he learns that she is a vampire, but she is his only friend and he needs to reconcile his fear of what she does with this new relationship.

This is the film that Let Me In was based on, and the two films are extremely similar. The US remake captured beautifully the pace and emotion of this film, with on a few changes. It is very beautiful, but so is the remake. Often, I would say don’t bother watching the remake, stick to the original, but in this case, they are very much interchangeable. Watch either or both, but brace yourself for some suspense and watch one.
