Hi everyone, This film looks interesting, has had really positive reviews and already has an American remake in the works. A Swedish vampire coming of age/love/horror/underdog tale, showing on Friday the 13th the day before Valentine's Day! Can you afford to miss this film.... Well, yes probably, but I hope you decide otherwise. We will go out after the film for conversation and the satisfaction of blood lust (only kidding).... The Film: Let The Right One In NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' PICK! "...the anti-Twilight of 2008." "This is a vampire movie like no other. Mesmerizing." - David Ansen, Newsweek This award-winning horror film based on the best-selling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist ably blends genre chills with genuine feeling. Oskar is a 12-year-old outcast who is frequently picked on by his classmates. He dreams of getting his revenge, but he never stands up to the boys. With the arrival of his new next-door neighbor, 12-year-old Eli, Oskar may finally have found a friend, ally, and first love. But Eli is no ordinary girl: she must keep her pale skin out of the sunlight, she can perform inhuman physical feats, and she has a thirst for blood. The bodies begin to pile up, but Oskar can’t stay away from the girl who has finally given him courage. Though there are plenty of scares, this remains moving and intelligent, a rare feat for the genre. Rated R. 114 minutes. Swedish with subtitles.
