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.
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

When I first started watching this film I got about 10 minutes in and I wanted to switch it off. I never normally give up on a movie so I decided to give it another 5 minutes. I'm so glad I did. This was one of my films of the year in 2011.
It's a beautiful film, a remake of a Swedish horror, but an amazing film never the less. The acting is wonderful, the atmosphere and 'feel' of the film is first class, it's simply a joy to watch.
Even if you're not a fan of the horror genre, this is worth 116 minutes of anybodies time.
The Hollywood version, however, isn't bad at all, and shows that Chloe Moretz is probably going to be an actress to watch in the coming years. She's great in Kick Ass too, even though both films couldn't be more different.
It tells the story of 'Owen' (Kodi Smit-McPhee) a young boy who is bullied at school and has no friends at home....until--a 12 year-old girl moves into the apartments 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 bullies 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'
Well surprisingly Reeve's actually did nail it! This is the only remake in history i can think of that pretty much stands toe to toe with the original ( for the most part anyway) Reeve's first stroke of genius was hiring the superb talents of Chloe Moretz ( Kick Ass) and Kodi McPhee (The Road)two brilliant child actors who are quite remarkable in their roles, i actually thought these 2 were far superior to the Swedish actors from the original, not that they weren't good, far from it, but Moretz and McPhee are much better all round actors with some great work already behind both of them and they completely nailed the relationship between the two friends that was already so well done in the original.
Reeve's also captures the atmosphere and the mood from the original remarkably well. Ok so the Los Almos setting here isn't quite as baron and stark as the Swedish version but the general isolation of a small town in the bleak winter is well realised.
A couple of moments here and there aren't as atmospheric as the original, the swimming pool scene at the end is more effective in the original for instance but for the most part this is a brilliant reworking of an already superb original.
If you haven't seen "Let the right one in" but think it must be rubbish because it's an american remake of an award winning European film then please think again? because this really is a great film, well directed, great story and brilliantly acted but i would recommend you watch the original as well as both are superb pieces of work.
