I’ve always thought vampires were cool and I’m talking about vampires not those sparkly, day-glo abominations from that book/movie that shall not be named. I mean, you get to party all night, sleep all day, you have strength, powers and in exchange all you have to do is drink some blood…too easy drill sergeant. Unless you were turned as a child and had to forever physically stay a child, I guess that would suck. Which brings us to the subject of tonights discussion, Let Me In.

It’s the eighties and Owens parents are splitting up and he often gets pushed to the side. One evening while sitting in the courtyard of the apartment building he lives in, he sees the new neighbors moving in. From there its your classic love story. Boy meets girl, girl shoots down boy, boy gets bullied at school, girl eventually comes around and they ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Throw in some vicious attacks, blood drinking and a rubiks cube and what more could you want…well besides not being a child for eternity.

Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Abby, the forever young bloodsucker in this remake of Let The Right One In and does an amazing job. Shes one of my favorite up and coming actors and I look forward to seeing her in the role of Carrie but more on that later. If you haven’t seen the original and you don’t mind subtitles (its a Swedish film) you can catch it on Netflix. Theres lots of blood, some gore, a few frights and a good story about young love. Let Me In gets a rating of: Sink Your Teeth Into It. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
