Old Mar 31st, 2009, 07:26 PM        Let the Right One In
Here's the producer's plot summary: Oskar, a bullied 12-year old, dreams of revenge. He falls in love with Eli, a peculiar girl. She can't stand the sun or food and to come into a room she needs to be invited. Eli gives Oskar the strength to hit back but when he realizes that Eli needs to drink other people's blood to live he's faced with a choice. How much can love forgive? Let The Right One In is a story both violent and highly romantic, set in the Stockholm suburb of Blackeberg in 1982.


I watched this last night, and I was pretty impressed. The two lead kids out-acted every single adult in every movie in recent memory. The dubbing left a lot to be desired, so if you can find a copy with the theatrical subs, go for that instead. Some of the shots are really beautiful in an eerie sort of way. Seriously, watch it.

It sounds kind of like Little Shop of Horrors, but with a vampire instead of a carnivorous plant.

Looks pretty creepy but good. Does it have a North American release?

Everybody has told me this is a pretty good flick. The only thing that's stopped me from seeing it so far is that it's a vampire movie. And after the original Lost Boys, I was pretty much convinced there would never be another vampire movie that could come close to it. So far, that's been the case exactly.

It came out last year, I think. I'm pretty sure there's two copies out right now. One is the dubbed one, and the other is one with REALLY BAD subtitles. Apparently, the company that released the subbed version has stated that they'll discontinue the line and put out some new ones. Not sure how long ago that was.

Mock - If you go around comparing everything to The Lost Boys, of course you'll be disappointed. It's a really solid movie on its own merits, though.

And no Rick Moranis

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention: it's already set for an American remake

Oh don't worry, I'm gonna see it for sure. And I'm not expecting it to be both awesome and comedic like Lost Boys. I've just never been very interested in vampires is all, and Lost Boys was the one movie that really made the subject matter interesting to me.

Yeah this is a good film, and it's not really a vampire film. It's just a kind of creepy story about friendship that happens to involve a vampire.

Whats up with all the vampire movies and shows recently? Especially the teen vampires? Vampires arent gay enough? They have to make them teenage vampires? Hypothetically, If you were a vampire why the hell would you want to turn a whinny and/or punk ass teenager into a vampire?

Please don't lump all vampire movies and books together because of pure shit like Twilight gaining widespread popularity. I fucking despise Twilight, both the movie and the book.

lol i dunno people have had hardons for vampires for a long time ;\

one time i went into a vampire chat room to see what kind of people were vampires. There was a kid who was, "da rel lestat the real 1 not da fake 1 the real lestate #1" and couldn't spell at all, which was hilarious, and then there was this pedophile lookin dude holding a baby who probably could've actually been a vampire.

I saw it in cinema here, and really liked it. I didn't expect another vampire movie to be any good, but then reviews were starting to come in and everyone seemed to love it, so I got curious and went to see it. And it was great. (I checked it out at rotten tomatoes too... it had like 97-98% or so positive reviews).

After this I learnt more about the story in the book it is based on... apparently, the movie follows part of the book pretty accurately, but large chunks have been cut out. So lots of things that are explained in length and detail in the book are left open to various interpretations in the movie. I think that works to the movie's advantage.

I also think Oskar is a little like those kids that one day get a gun and go to the schoolyard trying to take out as many people as possible... Only difference is he doesn't kill people himself, since he doesn't have to, with his vampire buddy murdering around.

There are like tons of websites comparing Twililght and LTROI... Not surprisingly since the movies came about the same time, and both are about puppy love between a human and a vampire... Like these two:

Rock on brother, rock on. I prefer the benign fantasy-type-can-change-at-will werecreatures, but I also like the pact-with-the-devil-huge-dire-wolf ones from mythology. It takes all types ya know.

Have you perchance ever seen Near Dark? That is a totally awesome movie. the only thing that bothered me was the fact that the vampires don't have any goddamn fangs. Why in the hell would a virus evolve not to give it's host the equipment to gather it's main food source? It makes no sense! Still, kickass movie I highly reccomend it.

And as for Let The Right One In, it looks awesome, but I was never able to see it in theaters, and I probably don't want to buy the DVD with the lobotomized English subtitling job. I'll just have to wait until a better version of the DVD comes out.

Thinking about it, there are only two vampire movies I've seen and genuinely liked, like good movies, not for their kitch value, and that's LTROI and Shadow of the Vampire.

One really good thing too about LTROI is that there's no escape from the fact that vampires kill people to survive. It's not like Eli has another option, like living only on animals or fake blood or something, and it's not like she has the alternative to be some kind of vampire Dexter and live only off "bad guys" to justify the whole thing... But perfectly ordinary decent people has to be killed off to feed her.
I mean, that was what made vampires scary in the first place. It doesn't make sense to make vampire movies and then remove that element... then why bother with vampires at all?
