    Let the Right One In...Anyone seen this movie yet?
    as a vampire flick, is it better than expected?
    I am a fan of new takes on tired concepts.
    like for example, Fright Night, The Lost Boys were quirky enough vamp films.
    The Howling was a clever and neat look at lycanthropes.

    So offer up opinions, please.

    i've actually just pre-ordered the DVD of it.

    Saw it at the cinema and really enjoyed it! personally not a massive horror film fan but this was really well crafted. I think as it was in Swedish and you had to contrate more due to subtitling i found it a bit more jumpy!

    If you buy this, make sure you get the one with the correct subtitles. It will be marked as having the "Theatrical Subtitles". Otherwise, you will be watching a slightly dumbed down and partially inaccurate translation. I'm waiting to guarantee that I can get the correct one.

    Let the Right One In? Do they take the right one out and shake it all about?

    It's a very solid film. Takes the boy-girl-vampire love theme and positively puts Twilight to shame.

    Do not go into it expecting your classic horror film though. This is not a "fun" movie, or one that provides action and classic chills. It is simply a very well told drama... with a vampire.

    ^

    All of the above but I thought the movie could have done without the muff shot of the 12 year old.

    Thanks for the heads up- i like GOOD vamp films.
    Hell, i saw a campy but decent flick on SCi-Fi (gasp) with Jason Mewes in it. was low budget, but still a drastic lean toward realism and a mature approach to the subject.

    I had always wished back in high school when i first read Vampire the Masquerade that it could be filmed.
    then i saw that suckfest tv show they did, and felt glad they didn't. Too much socio-political-cliques drama. kinda like Dynasty with real bloodsuckers, lol.

    so, i am looking forward to this.

    FYI - Guillermo Del Toro (with Ghost Writer) just released a new vampire novel called "The Stain", which I won't be surprised to see turned into a film. I'm digging it so far.
