LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (R)
MAGNET RELEASING (2008)
Starring: Kare Hedebrant, Lina Leanderson, Per Ragnar, Henrik Dahl, Karin Bergquist & more.
Most people may know of the remake of this film LET ME IN, but this is the original Swedish one.
The film follows Oskar who is a twelve year old boy who is constantly being beat up by bullies. He
keeps collecting newspaper clippings of a serial killer who has been killing off people in his town.
He uses these stories to try and find a way to get back at his tormentors. Oskar becomes friends
with a new girl who has moved in named Eli. He soon finds out that she is a misfit vampire and that
the killings were her doing. She & Oskar soon become really close and start to fall for each other.
She helps him get back at his tormentors by viciously killing them. One of the best vampire films
made and is better than the remake, although the remake stays pretty close to the original.
