If any film this year has won me over from being venomously against it when it was announced, to actually looking forward to it, it would be Matt Reeves Let Me In. 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. As a HUGE fan of the original I was dead set against an English speaking remake, yet despite all my fears from speaking to a number of people who have seen the film it looks like Matt Reeves has pulled it off. Everything I’ve heard has been great. Check out a new TV Spot for the movie below.

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.
