I don't think this is one of those movies that will be hauled as classics in the coming years, but it's still a thoroughly entertaining and striking display of northern filmmaking at it's best. Often melancholic and almost completely silent, drowning in snowy suburban landscapes, Let The Right One In has tons of beautiful imagery to showcase along with a score that supports the film as a whole and... read more

Oskar: "Are you really twelve?"
Eli: "Yes. It's just I've been twelve for a very long time."

An assuringly unique and refreshing vampire story from Sweden, Let the Right One In is a motion picture of extraordinary mood and imaginative directorial potency. Instead of a customary genre feature, this Swedish sleeper is in fact a hushed, gentle tale of provisional friendship, the... read more

Description: A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy’s wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn’t seem affected by the freezing temperatures. Coinciding with Eli’s arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders.

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (142 tv items)

"Well that was decent, very well crafted. More like drama than horror or action but I was excited about a different take on vampires. And I watched it and I found it boring, very slow, very little plot. After I watched this movie and the remake, I watched Interview With the Vampire, which did the same thing before in a much more layered and exciting way. And what did you know, both movies got new series around the same time."
