Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Format: DVD
Matt Reeves' re-make of the Swedish film, "Let the Right One In" ( "Lat Den Ratte Komma In") is actually just as compelling and satisfying a film as the original. There are many who believe that European, foreign language films with subtitles are unquestionably superior and should never be re-made. In a lot of cases, yes, there have been terrible travesties committed when Hollywood gets it's hands on unique, non-American originals, but THIS is NOT an example of one. Reeves ( Cloverfield ) has done a profoundly beautiful job of it. "Let Me In" is a highly accomplished film on every level of story and production. It is unfortunate that many ignored this gem by automatically assuming that it would be another shallow, Hollywood rip-off, when really, we have a film here that is very strong on all fronts.

The direction is flawless and Reeves maintains the quiet creepiness of a remote winter location, with its requisite, almost continuous, atomsphere of vast silence. It is as if human life were mere rustlings in the undergrowth of the vastness of eternity. The opening aerial shot of a night time winter landscape, disappearing into the huge distance of the dark, shot from far above, dwarfs the lights of on-coming vehicles on the lonely stretch, far away. It sets the tone and the underlying theme of human mortality and smallness in the face of the enormity and incomprehensibility of eternity. Greig Fraser's cinematography is exquisite, evocative, even artful. The visuals communicate just as much content as the script and action, and they do so with a great adeptness at lighting and mood. Each shot is a work of art. Stan Salfas' editing is precise, yet deeply expressive, propelling the story just as much as the narrative.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 8 2011
Format: DVD
To many, the resurgence of vampire movies (and TV shows and books and comic books) has been a bad, even terrible thing, reducing what had been a venerable subgenre of horror fiction to the object of teenage crushes and adolescent fantasies. The popularity of vampires, however, has known more highs than lows and, just as the Twilight and True Blood series have served to reinvigorate and hyper-sexualize the subgenre in recent years, Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire did the same just a couple decades ago.

It is easy to bemoan the trendification of vampires but, among the chaff, one can often find a few kernels of true originality. Just as Zombieland and World War Z managed to squeeze new blood from the tired flesh of zombie entertainment, Let Me In offers a fresh and new take on the bloodsucker theme.

To be entirely honest, Let Me In is not strictly speaking an original of any sort. It is a remake of a Swedish film titled Let the Right One In which is, in turn, an adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel of the same name. Still, for the purpose of this review, I examine only the American remake and its position within vampire lore as defined by North American cinema and literature.

Let Me In actually shares several aspects with the Twilight saga. It portrays a young person, largely isolated and lonely, who falls in love with a vampire, one who appears young but is, in fact, far older. In Let Me In, though, the gender roles are reversed and the tone of the film is far more serious. Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee), the human protagonist, and Abby (Chloe Moretz), the vampire, are both twelve (at least in appearance) and their relationship contains none of the romance or repressed sexuality that characterizes the interactions of Edward and Bella.

Let Me In was one of the best of the year which was sadly overlooked when it came out in theaters.
The performances of both Kodi Smit-McPhee and especially Chloe Moretz were outstanding and a little heartbreaking.
I know alot of people were upset with the idea of re - making Let the Right One In but I think director Matt Reeves
did a great job and it would be a shame if more people did not see this exceptional film.

I usually watch the originals before seeing remakes but with all the controversy regarding subtitle issues for the Swedish version, I was reluctant to pick it up.

I finally decided to go right to this American version instead and I loved it. It's bittersweet and fantastic. Definitely a must see film (whether it be the Swedish version or the American version).

Format: DVD
No, not as in vampires are real; but a story with a real vampire. Not one of those sparkly things. I have seen both the original movie Let the right one in (Don't watch the English dub-Watch the one in subtitles.) and now Let Me In. and I can say Let Me In is as appealing as the original. While the original movie may seem starker and grittier Let Me In is very satisfying due in large part to the acting of Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit Mcphee. Those who describe this solely as a horror film miss the point of this film which is as much of a love story/tragedy as Smit Mcphee's character of Owen is gradually falls in love with Moretz' character Abby and discovers her secrets. With Owen's unhappy home and school life he grasps on to his relationship with Abby with terryfying consequences. By the end of movie the director has us rooting for both Abby and Owen and wondering who is more the monster. Those who bullied Owen relentlessly or the vampire in the piece. I look forward to seeing more of both Kodi Smit Mcphee and Chloe Grace Moretz's work as actors for they both are very talented. I would definitely recommend this movie for those jaded by the Twilight experience and the plethora of tv vampire shows out there.
