LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (LAT DEN RATTE KOMMA IN)

Let The Right One In Movie Review

Oskar (Kare Hedebrant) is a twelve-year-old boy constantly teased by his classmates. A young girl named Eli (Lina Leandersson) moves in next door to him and they quickly strike up a friendship. Oskar starts to fall in love with Eli, but what he doesn’t know is that Eli is a vampire who has been doing all the killings around their small town. Eli provides Oskar with the help he needs overcoming his enemies, while Oskar provides a human connection for Eli. This Swedish film is really quite a movie. The children both do a good job in their roles, especially Leandersson, who provides just the right mix of sweetness and creepiness for Eli.

You've got red on you

The film does move slow at times and runs a bit long, and some of the supporting actors are pretty bad; however, these things are not enough to drag the movie down. A good story, a fair bit of gore, beautiful scenery and a really good ending make this a movie worth checking out.
