Let The Right On In, the 2008 Swedish flick on which the recent American film Let Me In is based, takes an interesting turn on the vampire genre.
Through the budding relationship between 12-year-old Oskar and the preternatural, faux-12-year-old Eli, viewers question what we think of loneliness and recognize many would do the unimaginable to be loved.
Let The Right On In is a visual treat with its stark cinematography and bleak tone. The child actors are superb. There is very little blood and gore, with the film focusing mostly on the relationship between the two children.
Even with subtitles, it rocks.
