Let The Right One In Synopsis

A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy's wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn't seem affected by the freezing temperatures.

Coinciding with Eli's arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. One man is found tied to a tree, another frozen in the lake, a woman bitten in the neck. Blood seems to be the common denominator – and for an introverted boy like Oskar, who is fascinated by gruesome stories, it doesn't take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire. But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Oskar becomes increasingly aware of the tragic, inhuman dimension of Eli's plight, but cannot bring himself to forsake her. Frozen forever in a twelve-year-old's body, with all the burgeoning feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent, Eli knows that she can only continue to live if she keeps on moving. But when Oskar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can...

Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson weaves friendship, rejection and loyalty into a disturbing and darkly atmospheric, yet poetic and unexpectedly tender tableau of adolescence. Let The Right One In is based on the best-selling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

It strikes pretty much all the right notes-- moody, vaguely threatening, emotional, tender, with a hint of violence underneath it all. It's so true to the spirit of the first Swedish film that you might even accuse it of being unoriginal

In this day of remakes and boundless intellectual property theft, it only makes sense that the brilliant and beautiful Let the Right One In would get an English-language rape just two years after its release. The Matt Reeves directed Let Me In has been given an official release date per a press release from Overture Films, and it's October 1st, 2010.

Richard Jenkins, Chloe Moretz Confirmed For Let Me In Richard Jenkins, Chloe Moretz Confirmed For Let Me In
This casting all sounds great-- Jenkins is welcome anywhere, Moretz has already shown the kind of wisdom beyond her years necessary for the role in 500 Days of Summer, and Smit-McPhee is reportedly terrific in The Road. I'm troubled by one detail, though

It has been reported before that The Road's Kodi Smit-McPhee will play the main character Owen (originally named Oskar), and that casting seems to still be intact. Moretz as Abby and Hoffman as Abby's keeper/father figure (named Hakan in the Swedish film) would be perfect
