Let Me In (2010)
Director: Matt Reeves
Main Stars: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Grace Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Cara Buono, Sasha Barrese
Storyline: A young boy befriends a young girl vampire
Review (Spoils): Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee ) lives a poor life of being picked on because he is a little different. He dreams of the day when he confront his bullies and make them pay, well along comes adorable Abby (Chloe Grace Moretz). She appears only at night and is new to the neighbourhood and people do not know much about her. While this cute kid love affair is building the police are on a hunt for strange cult that drains blood from their victims, which is really Abby’s dad you is a ancient vampire and he needs to feed his daughter.
Remake time again, and this time it is not bad. We have lots of blood in this one and both leading character Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee hold it well together. Something about Chloe Grace Moretz makes you entranced to the film. She is cute and yet scary as hell when she is pissed off. This nightmare like fairytale shows the softer and harder side of being a child that just does not fit in and yet twisted with the shady vampire side of things. We have great acting, gloomy story and lots of red what is there not to like about this film.
Rating: I personally hate remakes so I did not have high hopes for this as I did enjoy the original Let the Right One In. But Chloe Grace Moretz stole my heart with her performance in this film and made this remake something that is gearing very close to the being as good as the original. If you have not seen this film go do it…its vampire fun with a side of dark childhood.
