Let Me In

Rated R 115 minutes 2010

Surprise. This Hollywood remake of Tomas Alfredson and John Ajvide Lindqvist’s majestic Swedish shocker Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In) is neither dumbed-down nor especially softened up. In fact, it stands by itself as a worthy addition to the cinematic literature of the vampire. As adapted and directed by TV moveover Matt Reeves, the relationship between an androgynous twelve-year-old outsider named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Abby, the equally lonely girl who moves into the apartment next door one winter (Chloë Grace Moretz from Kick-Ass), has all the character complexity and most of the chills of the original. As a bonus, A-list character actors Richard Jenkins and Elias Koteas are given more screen time as, respectively, Abby’s “father” and the nosy police detective investigating those mysterious, grisly murders suddenly spooking the residents of snowy Los Alamos, New Mexico. Put out the welcome mat. (115 min.)
