The anti-Twilight movie
Just saw a really cool vampire movie. No not the ennui-ridden Edward and Bella. I'm talkin' Oskar and Eli. What, you haven't heard?
Let the Right One In is a Swedish Vampire horror film that really gets under your skin.
My wife and I walked home after seeing this film and not only were there no people in our usually bustling Chicago neighborhood (post Turkey dinner) but the chilling atmosphere of this moody and twisted little film left me feeling really creeped out.
In a nutshell it's about a bullied twelve-year old boy who befriends the twelve year old girl next door. She's a cute little kid. And she's a vampire. They become buddies and, well, people get bitten. It has some truly terrifying scenes and actually some funny, campy ones. If you like intelligent horror as opposed to torture porn (Saw, Hostel). This is a must see if it is playing in your town.
