A 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young girl whose appearance in town suspiciously coincides with a horrifying series of murders in director Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the book by author John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the screenplay. Oskar is a young boy who can't seem to shake off the local bullies, but all of that begins to change when a new neighbor moves in next door. After striking up an innocent friendship with his eccentric next-door neighbor, Oskar realizes that she is the vampire responsible for the recent rash of deaths around town. Despite the danger, however, Oskar's friendship with the girl ultimately takes precedence over his fear of her.

This movie, and the book, are the anti-Twilight. Every good vampire idea is here. The title actually speaks volumes as to the classic nature of the film. It's 75% love story, and 25% beautifully gory bliss. It is cinematic, poignant, and gorgeously framed. This is not only one of the greatest vampire films ever made, but also one of the best foreign pictures I've had the pleasure of watching. Give it a look. You won't be disappointed.
Let The Right One In was one of 2008's finest films. It is one of the best vampire movies ever made. It isn't strictly a horror movie. It is a foreign drama with vampire elements. It is, in short, sublime. However, the distributor of the US DVD totally destroyed the film by dumbing down the subtitles to the point of lunacy. There are scenes with 6-8 lines of dialogue reduced to 4-7 words. The film has been butchered and this disc should NOT be bought. The distibutor has faced a public outcry over what they did to the movie and have promised to get a proper DVD manufactured. They are not however offering exchanges for people who have purchased the garbage version. When the new version is available, the Subtitles info section will clearly state "English (theatrical)." When that version is released, it is strongly recommeded. It is a five star film with a 0 star DVD release. My recommendation is to wait for the correct version and then it is a must-buy. Everyone should see this film (and with literal translations of the Swedish dialog), just not yet. As soon as they release the correct version, it will have my highest recommendation. So, don't buy this DVD. Buy the theatrical version as soon as it is released. Soon it will be butchered a second time with an Americanized remake directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield).
I saw the movie twice before getting the DVD yesterday, which I watched last night. For whatever reason, the movie has been re-subtitled, and the newer subtitles are dumbed down and some dialog was changed completely. This was my favorite movie of 2008. It's sad that someone decided to mess with something so beautiful. I'm hoping I'll be able to find the correct version (European maybe?) on eBay.
The movie is one of the best vampire films of the past decade. The problem is that the Blu-ray has those dumbed-down subtitles; the company, after pressure, came out with a DVD with the theatrical subititles. They never did with the Blu-ray. I wouldn't go near this one with a ten-foot pole.
The best movie I have ever seen (and no im not exaggerating). Hands-Down worth your hard earned cash and worth the watch. This film tingles all your senses and is unforgettable in every way. Truly a Modern Classic Go Buy It!
Hands down the greatest Vampire movie ever made. Absolutely fantastic. If you like the movie, than get the book. Even better, with some extra stuff left out of the movie but still amazingly incredible.
This movie did not change from the book, but it did leave out quite a bit. Some of things that aren't said in the movie that you may want to know are in the books. The characters that you want to know more about, including the main ones, are all given a more detailed existence in the books. The movie has a lot of feeling, but reading the book before the movie (and even reading it after would suffice) gives me a greater connection. If you're gonna' see this movie, read the book! Great movie.
This vampire movie was too long. It is actually funny in parts, but definitely not worth spending much $ on.
I never heard of this movie but saw a preview for it. It looked creepy and interesting at the same time. This film is really good and the two leads did an amazing job. Its the story of a bullied boy, meets his new neighbor who happens to have a secret, all the while there's been killings around town. There are some bloody scenes so this isn't for kids to see. What I liked about this film was that in some scenes they don't show you everything but leave for you, the viewer to imagine it. Nowadays some horror movies don't do that and just have too much blood than necessary. I recommend the film if you love vampires or want a horror film with a story or have read the book.
This is one of the best vampire movie that I have ever watched. With the vampire craze going on right now, this is truly a great love story for true vampire fans. Don't expect much of dazzling vampires because it is bloody and disturbing at times, but the same time it is sweet and a great story of friendship. The story is set is a realistic world that some people can relate with, and both lead characters are well portrayed by the actors. I do advice two things: One don't read the book it will ruin the movie for you and two watch the original instead of the dubbed version.
This film is everything that a vampire movie is supposed to be. HOWEVER, the only appropriate way to watch it without sacrificing quality is to adjust the audio settings to Swedish 5.1 and the subtitle settings to English (Theatrical). If you try to watch it any other way, you will hate the movie!
