Anyone who says that this movie sucks, is clearly an *******. Because it's fierce! And so help me if they make an "American Version". Oh wait...

Given that the film is originally from Sweden gives the film edge before even viewing it, but this film is mainly a series of events tied together. It's mainly centered on Oskar, who is being bullied by his classmates but never has the courage to strike back. Then he meets Eli, a girl who is about his age and they slowly start to fall for each other. But Eli is leaving out one little detail, she is a blood sucking vampire! With an implication that Oskar is lonely, he soons accepts the fact that she is one because he loves her. Eli is tied to bloody deaths around the town, but the director focuses more on Eli's and Oskar's relationship and there sides of the family rather than criminal investigations and the creature feature aspect. He does it simply by positioning the camera's in a wide shot where the action is happening. Unlike American horror, "Let the Right one In" excludes any crescendos and develops a nice storyline that keeps you interested, but everything appears blan.

It was highly entertaining- a refreshing and different vampire movie.

This movie was sad, scary , creepy and human . As vampire movies go there were hardly any special effects but there was no need just great story and acting. It was beautiful shot and the background was another character in the film. It was what Twilight tried to be. Maybe this director should get the franchise.
I strongly recommend it.
