Let Me In [Blu-ray] [Canadian]
Region 1 USA/CA (
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.
Chloe Moretz, Chloe, Grace Moretz, Kodi McPhee, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, Cara Buono
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."
"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."
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Reeves understands what made the first film so eerie and effective, and here the same things work again."
"[The movie] makes a direct and disarming play for affection, eliciting in viewers something akin to the awkward, resilient tenderness that is its subject."
New York Times
"[A]n effective remake of a foreign hit that makes adult vampire tales TWILIGHT and TRUE BLOOD look like child's play."
"The entire cast is strong, with Moretz and Smit-McPhee right up to the level of their Swedish counterparts."
Los Angeles Times
"[T]his is more than a respectful remake; LET ME IN is quietly stylish and thoroughly chilling in its own right."
Wall Street Journal
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."
3 stars out of 4 -- "Director Matt Reeves proves expert at tracing Alfredson's footsteps creating a mood of chilling terror..."
"LET ME IN replicates the Swedish film's spare, haunted, wintry palette..."
"[LET ME IN] is a rare creature on the contemporary movie landscape: It's a remake that surpasses its predecessor in depth and vision."
"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+
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."
"[I]t plays better as a horror film, more concentrated in its focus on the creepy and shocking aspects of its unusual love story."
Sight and Sound
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's hard to imagine a more intelligent and well-crafted American horror being released this year."
