Let the Right One In


Finally saw Thomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In.


I’m really pleased that no one told me that it was a vampire movie, because I  may have felt less inclined. Because when I think of vampires, I think of people like this. Not some cute sociopathic children and the Swedes. 

Its not a thriller filled with gore and that and nearly an hour of the annoying shrieking sound that comes from the dumb broad who can’t figure out how to use a knife, or run, or not get raped. Let the Right One In is tasteful….Mostly. (There’s a scene in it with CGI cats, that was so unnecessary and overdone that…whatever) There is no sexy vampire story of revenge, here. In other stories where someone is sucking blood from a human, you’re cheering for the mortal. But the mood is so beautiful set in this movie, that you can’t help but feel love and sympathy for ‘the other team’.

It was well written, beautifully shot, and although it is ready to watch on Netflix, although I would suggest another way since I’m pretty sure the audio in this streaming was hacked to shit.

    I downloaded this one recently and loved it! Prettiest snow I ever did saw.
    But I’m a lover of vampire flicks (even the crummy ones), so my credibility is shot.
