let me in comic con poster Great New Poster For Matt Reeves Let Me In

MTV have unveiled a gorgeously sinister teaser poster for Matt Reeves’ Let Me In. I still have my reservations about this film, but from what I’ve seen so far it looks great. Let Me In is a remake of the Swedish film Let The Right One In, which itself was an adaptation of the Swedish novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist of the same name. Let The Right One In is easily one of my favourite films of last few years, it’s emotionally involving, imaginative, haunting and one of the most deeply atmospheric films you will ever see. Fingers crossed this will do the original justice.

Let Me In, tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar® nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.
