Editors Note
Note After the Swedish original earned raves, Matt Reeves (CLOVERFIELD) directs this remake of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. In Tomas Alfredson's 2008 film, a lonely 12-year-old finds a friend in his new neighbor, a girl who happens to be a vampire.
Reviews
Uncut 5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]hear away the vampire aspect and you have a tender and surprisingly human story of two people untied through mutual yearning and solitude....An exceptional film." 08/10/2009
Hollywood Reporter "LET ME IN achieves the rare feat of remaining rigorously reverential to its source material while emerging as a highly accomplished work in its own right." 09/11/2010
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "LET ME IN eclipses TWILIGHT in every way, leaving you thirsty for more of this haunting, touching and unforgettable thriller." 09/13/2010
New York Times "[The movie] makes a direct and disarming play for affection, eliciting in viewers something akin to the awkward, resilient tenderness that is its subject." 10/01/2010
USA Today "[A]n effective remake of a foreign hit that makes adult vampire tales TWILIGHT and TRUE BLOOD look like child's play." 10/01/2010
Los Angeles Times "The entire cast is strong, with Moretz and Smit-McPhee right up to the level of their Swedish counterparts." 10/01/2010
Wall Street Journal "[T]his is more than a respectful remake; LET ME IN is quietly stylish and thoroughly chilling in its own right." 10/01/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Reeves understands what made the first film so eerie and effective, and here the same things work again." 09/29/2010
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "Director Matt Reeves proves expert at tracing Alfredson's footsteps creating a mood of chilling terror..." 09/30/2010
A.V. Club "LET ME IN replicates the Swedish film's spare, haunted, wintry palette..." 09/30/2010
Movieline "[LET ME IN] is a rare creature on the contemporary movie landscape: It's a remake that surpasses its predecessor in depth and vision." 09/30/2010
Entertainment Weekly "LET ME IN has greater potency than LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, because it's about a 'redemptive' love so haunted you're never sure if it can lead to anything but more evil." -- Grade: B 09/29/2010
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[This] terrific American remake gets almost everything about the original, beautifully translating its plot, character and even style with intelligence, reverence and affection." 10/18/2010
Sight and Sound "[I]t plays better as a horror film, more concentrated in its focus on the creepy and shocking aspects of its unusual love story." 12/01/2010
Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's hard to imagine a more intelligent and well-crafted American horror being released this year." 11/05/2010
