Let Me In

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: In 2009 a movie by the name of “Let the Right One In” appeared on DVD and Blu-Ray. I’d never heard of it. The premise sounded interesting (from the back of the box, anyway) so I popped it in the player and decided to give it a try. I’m not usually a fan of foreign films, but I have to say that I’m a bit of a vampire fan, hence my viewing of the film. As anyone who’s seen the movie knows, it’s not full of action.

Let Me In Review

  • Excerpt: Let Me In is sold on atmosphere. It’s uneasy, terrifying, and unsure. This is a film about two kids, one disturbed due to heavy bullying, the other a vampire. The film doesn’t shy away from its lore, elements familiar to fans of bloodsuckers inserted here to great effect, the difference being it’s merely a 12-year old donning the fangs. That changes everything.

Blu-ray Review: Let Me In

Brutal as Hell
4 February 2011
  • Excerpt: There were few films this year that had a harder hill to climb upon their release than Let Me In. A seemingly rushed remake of a Swedish vampire film devoutly loved by a relatively small but vocal group of movie fans, Let Me In was released in theaters to a rabid throng of horror fans who were ready to tear it apart for daring to share a shadow with 2008’s Let the Right One In.

Let Me In (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: I will likely track a copy of that film down at some point in the future. My curiosity has been adequately whetted. This film stands on its own as a welcome breath of fresh air, at least for American audiences. If nothing else you might want to see what the new Hammer Films is up to now. It’s a strong start. Let Me In has set the bar high for the directors and performers who follow. Congrats to the new Hammer Films. “You have to say it.

Let Me In

High-Def Digest
28 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Matt Reeves delivers much more than a simple remake of the popular Swedish novel and film ' Let the Right One In .' 'Let Me In' is an alternate take on the plot about two melancholic children dealing with a cruel and cold world. It's a wonderfully captivating picture which elegantly blends horror tropes within a harrowing, dramatic tale of finding love in the most unusual place.

Let Me In

Cinema Blend
1 October 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s clear from watching Let Me In that director Matt Reeves truly loves and respects the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In , which is also based on the same 2004 novel by Ajvide Lindqvist. But respect is a tricky thing and taken too far, respect turns into reverence. Then reverence in turn becomes fear, a fear that by altering something which is already good you may in some way diminish it.

  • Summary: This American remake of 2008's small Swedish gem is a valiant effort but rarely evokes the eerie essence of the original.
