Overview

John Ajvide Lindqvist's celebrated vampire novel makes the leap to the big screen once again with the second feature adaptation in so many years Tomas Alfredson's critically acclaimed 2008 hit Let the Right One In, being the first. The sensitive target of vicious bullying at school, 12-year-old Owen Kodi Smit-McPhee is a social misfit from a broken home. By day Owen dreams about laying waste to his classroom tormentors; by night his attentions turn to his reclusive neighbors in their austere apartment complex. One evening, as Owen takes out his pent-up aggressions on a tree, his new neighbor Abby Chloë Grace Moretz appears over his shoulder. A young girl wise beyond her years, Abby just moved in next door to Owen with her stoic caretaker Richard Jenkins, who seems to harbor a sinister secret. Compelled by Abby's apparent imperviousness to the harsh winter elements, her frail disposition, and the fact that she's nowhere to be found before the sun falls, Owen senses a kindred soul, and strikes up a friendship with the girl, despite her repeated attempts to maintain an emotional distance. Simultaneously, their community grows vigilant following a series of vicious murders, and Abby's caretaker vanishes without a trace. Later, as Abby begins to grow vulnerable, her bond with Owen strengthens. By the time Owen begins to suspect that his evasive new friend is something other than human, it starts to seem as if Abby could use a good friend after all. Given that his bullies are growing more emboldened by the day, so too could Owen.

    Bridget's Review

    My husband and I got Let Me In in the mail yesterday from Netflix. After dinner, we decided to watch it and both of us really enjoyed it. I especially liked when Abby got Owen to stand up for himself. I was cheering from the couch. This isn't your average vampire movie, it's unique and fresh. I highly recommend it to horror lovers.

    Writing reviews can be such a self-indulgent venture. Especially

    Writing reviews can be such a self-indulgent venture. Especially when a review centers around sharing our feelings about a work, as if that alone makes our opinion by default right for everyone. Having read the book and seen the Swedish film adaptation. I think I can offer more than that though. With the opening credits to this film stating that this movie is based off of both the novel and the Swedish film adaptation of the book, I can see how true that statement is. There are details in this film that are in the book, but not the original movie. As well as shared details that were in the original movie, but not the book. Also, if you watch the extras you see the director explain why it takes place in a wintery New Mexico. If you’ve read the book you’ll realize it’s meant to be a parallel of an atmospheric detail in the written work. Not that you can discern that by watching this movie alone. Without the additional info offered in the extras it just seems like an out of place element. I guess the first release of the English translation of the book Let the Right One In, was sold under the title Let Me In, in the states. Which explains the title variation. Since the significance of the original title is left out of this film, I guess it makes sense to use it, even if it’s a lame title. Many details of the original book get compressed in this American film. There was a religious person in the book, but it wasn’t the mother. There were alcoholics in the book, but none were the mother either. Of course, if you have read the book, you realize, there is a whole other side to the story that has been completely written out of the American version. While it’s in the Swedish film, but it’s put in so subtly that it’s easy to miss. If you hadn’t read the book first, you probably would not even recognize those details for what they were; I know I didn’t. I had to re watch the films after finishing the book to realize that. With all that being said, I’m glad I saw this film first, so I could enjoy it for what it is, rather dismiss it for what it is not. I really did like what Chloe Moretz did with the part. However, I did find the removal of the male leads morbid curiosity a bit misguided. I’m sure it would have worked much better if they hadn’t.

    Let Me In is a fantastic movie with fantastic acting, cinematogr

    Let Me In is a fantastic movie with fantastic acting, cinematography, and directing. I really really love this movie, and its Swedish predecessor, but I think Let Me In improved on the original. The chemistry between Abby and Owen is the best I've seen in a movie so far, and I watch a lot of movies. 

    Chloe Grace Moretz was brilliant with her interpretation of Abby; the sadness, loneliness, and despondency that can see in her eyes and facial expressions. It's almost hearbreaking. Kodi Smit-McPhee was also brilliant as Owen, who differs from Oskar a more than Abby differs from Eli. You will never watch a movie and say "Richard Jenkins was awful". It just will never happen. His take on Hakan/Thomas was also amazing. You can see the how much he loves and cares for Abby, and how much of a toll killing takes on him with just his eyes and facial expressions. Not many actors can do that, but it seems like all the actors in this movie can.

    This is a very beautiful and tragic love story and I highly recommend it. No film has impacted me as deeply and Let Me In, and I want to thank Matt Reeves for making such a moving movie.
