If you felt Let Me In was a subpar remake of Let The Right One In then give this movie a go. It's made by Dark Castle, one of my favourite modern horror movie makers. The acting and pacing is phenominal. The characters are well fleshed out and character development doesn't just add to the engagement to the movie but also plays into parts of the plot. It also has one of the best twists ever.
The bluray shines for most of the movie but in some parts the image isn't as crisp as you'd expect, but for the most part it's beautiful. A good, deep modern horror movie, this movie starts off nice and peaceful (except for the creepy opening) but slowly rachetes up the tension and creepy. Information about the characters is given out in little bites like a good TV series, allowing you to figure out what peoples hang ups are all about before eventualy having them revealed. It's a fairly long movie, bit over 2 hours, but the length is filled with substance not just drawn out suspense scenes.
And ontop of all that, it's got a really cheap pricetag, even for an Australian like me with the exchange rate.
Special features include a 14 minute making of, which gets more interesting halfway through when it starts refering to the history of scary kid movies, some of which i'll have to track down. There are a couple of interviews as well with cast and crew, and deleted scenes and alternate ending (which are interesting but it's clear why they were cut as they add little to the movie and would have dragged it), and a trailer.
