let me in (2010) - matt reeves

Let Me In is a remake of the Swedish film 'Let The Right One In', and although the new film (as far as l remember) was much bloodier, l preferred the Swedish version. Don't ask me why, l just did, as it somehow appealed to me more, and from the tiny bits of my brain where l can still retrieve some slight information about it, it seemed darker. A young boy who is an outsider and being bullied at school meets a young girl on the playground outside their block of flats. She turns out to be a vampire (girls - eh!), but comes to his rescue later on in the film. A good idea, it's also well done, but nothing special (and watch 'Let The Right One In' rather than this).
