Let Me In – Don’t write Let Me In off because it’s an American remake of the exceptional 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In (Låt den rätte komma in). Director Matt Reeves has handled the material with care and retells the young vampire love story with heart, crafting an excellent movie that keeps the good parts from the original and builds on it, in turn making it a better film experience. The film follows a young boy (played by Kodi Smit-McPhee) as he befriends his new neighbour (played by Chloe Moretz) before learning she is a vampire. The writing, effects, and acting are all very subtle, and the film is beautifully shot and composed. Even if you’re a hardcore fan of the original, Let Me In is definitely worth watching. Special features on the Blu-ray include audio commentary with Matt Reeves, deleted scenes, a making-of featurette, and more. Film *** Blu-ray ***

(3.5 out of 5 stars).
