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.

Very Interesting movie didn't know what to expect here starting out. It held my interest the whole time found the story bout the love the boy and the little vampire shared very beautiful in a way. Wasn't very scary as far as horror movies go but It was still compelling and original. Go see it will be very surprised and might even like it. Has my vote as the best foreign movie of 2008
