Let Me In Movie

Let Me In, an upcoming fantasy thriller movie directed by Matt Reeves and starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz, and Richard Jenkins. It’s a remake of the Swedish movie ‘Let the right one in’ which was itself based on a novel John Ajvide Lindqvist. The release date of Let me is set for October 1, 2010.

Let Me In Trailer


“A bullied young boy befriends a young female vampire who lives in secrecy with her guardian.”

Director Matt Reeves what he’s been working on this remake:

“It’s very much an Americanization of the tale that John Ajvide Lindqvist tells. [..] It’s so much about that period of preadolescence, that feeling of being a child and of being bullied, the difficulties of growing up. It’s such a beautiful coming-of-age story, in addition to being such a terrific genre story. [..] I really wanted to put you, even more so, into the point of view of the boy and understand his childhood as vividly as it comes across in the book.”

I haven’t seen the original movie, but since Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz, both great young actors, have the lead roles in the remake, I think I’m going to wait for Matt Reeves’ Let Me In!

    You really should watch the original Swedish version. I doubt that any American remake could live up to it’s beauty and complexity. “let the right one in” was one of the best film of this decade and one of the best vampire films ever made. I find it sad that most Americans will never take the time to see it just because an American director is remaking it.

    Most Americans don’t realize there is a movie industry outside the ol’ U. S. of A. Most good ‘foreign films’ are better than the best Hollywood chooses to offer. Oh, unless they decide to buy the rights and remake a hit from overseas…
    (That writers strike from a few years back was necessary, wasn’t it?)

    I highly doubt it will be as good as the Swedish one, given the stated intention of making it more accessible to a wider audience, but I will nevertheless be looking forward to watching it, if only to see what Chloe Moretz does with the character, as I find her to be a fantastic actress for her age. Like Dakota Fanning, she seems to have a certain knack for dealing with the “grown-up-ness” of the characters she has played, which will definitely come in handy in this case.

    I also have respect for the director Matt Reaves for his work in Cloverfield, with its fresh style and more subtle approach, so I have hope that the American version will be able to stand on its own and not butcher the original.
