Film Review : Let Me In
A film remake of the Swedish film , Let the Right One In, by Matt Reeves. The same director of Cloverfield. Takes place in the early 80s in New Mexico during winter. A young boy befriends a new new neighbor that happens to be a very well aged vampire whom falls in love with later in the film. Chloe Moretz plays Abby, the vampire. She's the same actress the portrayed Hit girl in Kick Ass. I see a bright future for this young actress with her choice of films and her acting ability. The film was pretty much on point from the original. A very cold dark lonely horror drama. There were a few cute scenes in the film such as the young boy asking her out on a date and giving a her a copy of Romeo and Juliet. I found that heart warming even for such a dark film. The effects in the film were suttle yet to the point. The score was produced by Academy Award winner Micheal Giacchino. The camera work was superb to bring the element of cold isolation in a very film noirish type of setting. This is a great film for that perfect bloody date. I found it romantic at times but this is me though... Overall a horror film finally worth watching.
