From Amazon.co.uk

Let Me In blends the innocent face of Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) with the darkness of vampirism. A young boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road) has troubles at home (his parents are divorcing) and at school (bullies pick on him mercilessly). But when a mysterious girl named Abby (Moretz) moves in next door, Owen hopes he's found a friend, even though she smells a little strange. Unfortunately, his new friend needs blood to live, and the man who seems to be her father (Richard Jenkins, Six Feet Under) goes out to drain local residents to feed her. But even as Owen starts to suspect something is wrong, having a real friend might just matter more. Because the Swedish film adaptation of the novel Let the Right One In (on which Let Me In is based) was surprisingly popular and critically acclaimed, it's going to be hard for Let Me In to avoid comparisons. Surprisingly, it retains much of the flavor and spirit of the original. It's not as understated--this is an American movie, after all--and some of the creepiness is lost along with that subtlety. Despite that, Let Me In has its own spookiness and the performances (including Elias Koteas, Zodiac, as a local policeman) are strong. Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield). --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Matt Reeves writes and directs this vampiric coming-of-age romance based on the Swedish novel 'Let the Right One In' by John Ajvide Lindqvist and Tomas Alfredson's 2008 Swedish-language film adaptation. Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as Owen, a solitary 12-year-old in 1980s New Mexico who is continually tormented by a gang of bullies. When the enigmatic Abby (Chloe Moretz) moves in next door, the two form an unlikely friendship that will change Owen's life forever as it emerges that Abby is a 200-year-old vampire, frozen in childhood and condemned to live on a diet of fresh human blood. With Abby on his side, Owen is finally able to face up to the bullies - but Abby's unquenchable thirst for blood gives rise to a fresh set of problems.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It's hard not to judge this film in terms of the original, but in fact it is a very good movie in its own right. The action is set in the remote American hinterlands of the high mountains of New Mexico. It's the depth of frozen, claustrophobic mid-winter, 1983. An isolated 12 year old boy miserably struggles to avoid being tormented at school; his separated parents head for divorce and his mother anaesthetises the pain with religion and the bottle. Bullied and vulnerable, the boy is very susceptible to the strange girl who moves into the apartment next door. Except... she hasn't been a girl for very many years.
The story of their developing relationship is told with great dexterity and delicacy. The performances from the two young actors are extraordinary; highly emotional without being sentimental. At all times the fragile nature of the children's growing trust and affection is brutally enhanced by the aggression and cruelty of the bullies, and by the vampiric girl's fundamentally bestial nature. This isn't Twilight. There's no soft-focus, doe-eyed beauty to the nature of a creature which must tear flesh to feed, or die itself. `Let Me In' pulls no punches about the savagery of the vampire or its horrible weaknesses. The scene where the girl is *not* invited in and suffers the consequences in order to win the boy's trust is... gruelling. Yet of course by far the worst behaviour, the most appalling brutality, comes not from the vampire but from the normal children who delight in making the boy's life nearly unbearable.
`Let Me In' uses very few of the normal cinematic tricks to startle the audience. There are hardly any `boo!' moments. But there are plenty of chilling, horrific moments, and a gradual racheting of tension throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'CLASSY 'VAMPIRE' TALE' 8 July 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
'Hammer' have added their formula to the '2008' 'Let The Right One In' ( which i bought when released) this version obviously follows much of the original , but has a few added sequences making it equally watchable.
It tells the story of 'Owen' (Kodi Smit-McPhee) a young boy who is bulied at school and has no friends at home....until--a 12 year-old girl moves into the appartments where 'Owen' lives.
However 'Abby' (Chloe' Grace Moretz) isn't the same as other girls, the two only meet up after the sun goes down.
The two become close, and it soon becomes obvious to 'Owen' that 'Abby' has a secret which she's reluctant to share.
Meanwhile 'Owen's' life at school becomes more difficult as the bulies raise the stakes.
It's a good Vampire movie,, and yes there is plenty of blood, 'Chloe' Grace Moretz' has a bright future ahead........welcome back 'Hammer films'

4.0 out of 5 stars A good remake. 15 Mar 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
The original swedish film Let The Right One In, is a horror masterpiece. This, director Matt Reeves' follow up to Cloverfield isn't quite as good but manages to be a creepy and enjoyable horror movie in it's own right. Very well acted and well made, Kodi Smitt McPhee and Chloe Moretz are two of the best child actors around at the moment, in fact Chloe Moretz may be one of the best child actors ever. It's very faithfull to the swedish original and if you haven't seen it you really should. While this is as i said a very well acted and well made remake it is at the same time really for people who don't like subtitles as it's practically identical to the brilliant original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let it in 13 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
I thought this film was a beautiful, bittersweet tale of a young boy who would do anything to have one friend like Abby, a girl who's 12 and has been for a very long time. The pace is slow, interspersed with remarkably brutal and intense scenes of violence - this is not a bad thing, the slow pace makes the scenes of horror that much more effective.

The main characters are portrayed very well. You get the sense from the start that Owen is a very isolated boy, affected by his parents separation and alone in facing his troubles at school. Its love at first sight for him when he sees Abby and this is expounded when he meets her. Abby is a girl with horrific capabilities, yet when not in a trance of visceral blood-lust, talks and behaves like you would expect a girl of her age. Her subtle, affectionate touches however (particularly in a scene with her 'father') evidence someone who's been around quite a bit longer than your average school girl. The supporting cast is all good and by the end you just wish that the dogged detective would just go away and leave the kids alone!

The tale is bittersweet because you know that Owen is utterly intoxicated by Abby and would follow her anywhere, yet she can never 'grow-up' and they can never grow old together, she will always be 12 until the day Owen dies. Let Me In is an affecting film, one that will not easily be forgotten and quite a bit more than your average fang-flick. Congratulations Hollywood, you still have a heart when you want to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic 3 Aug 2011
By The Neon Weasel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not a fan of horror films,for the simple reason they seem to have forgotten how to make them these days.Everything is done to a formula to appeal to the target audience,originality has gone out ot the window,and been replaced by CGI gore,which they believe will make up for the fact that what your watching isnt actually scary,just tired,worn out and lame.So I wasnt expecting that much from this film,Id had it months and not gotten round to watching it.So imagine my surprise when I finally did play it,and found it to be one of the most astounding films Ive seen for a long,long time.

The story revolves around the friendship between two young children,Owen(Kodi Smit-McPhee)who is relentlessy bullied at school and very isolated,and the barefoot and mysterious Abby(Chloe Grace Moretz),who has just moved in next door.Their strange,but growing friendship,is played out against the backdrop of a series of violent murders in the area.It gripped me from the word go and pulled me into the story,which is cleverly multi layered and has a modern day,creepy,gothic atmosphere about it.You find yourself becoming mesmerised as events unfold,and things get more and more grizzly,and emotionally intense.

This is the way I wish all horror films could be made,its not made by numbers,or to fit a demographic,it has genuine passion and feeling.What makes it even more incredible in my book,is that it comes from the same director(Matt Reeves)who made Cloverfield.A film I absolutely hated,and still regard as a triumph of style over substance,but hats off to him for this one,its an incredible film in every way.
