Let the Right One In is not just a horror genre on its own or some kind of a teen vampire flick but its more than that, its epic. It has sleeper moments at the start but it ends with a dramatic fashion. It will be the most satisfying and memorable melodramatic horror in years as Alfredson's best film yet.

The performances are incredible, the direction is stylish, every inch of the production (from the sound design to the cinematography) is impeccable, and the script intelligently examines what makes a human being a monster with heart and fear, making "Let the Right One In" a masterful product from a considerable talent.

An expertly crafted story riding on its great subtlety making for some really absorbing imagery.

Let the Right One In is a unique, unforgettable and scary vampire movie with a clever script, memorable perfomances and interesting characters.

I was thrown off by the rather flippant English dubbing at the start, but something grabbed me about this movie. I stuck with it, and am haunted days later. This movie saves the tricks, and slides them in subtly to remind you they are talented movie makers, without shoving it at you from the start. Great movie.

The story and the acting are both totally intriguing. I'll take this over the latest (cinematic) franchise any day.

Ranks among the great horror films, period. Perfectly paced, brilliant atmosphere and cinematography and lifelike emotion.

An amazing adaptation. Gorgeous cinematography. Touching story of childhood friendship with a vicious twist.

The original vampire story. Hauntingly bleak, with some of my favorite scenes of all time.

A vampire movie with intelligence, smart characterization and plenty of suspense and thrills.

Bolstered by gorgeously textured cinematography, passionate direction, and two spectacular lead performances from children no less, Let the Right One In is an imperfect film on the verge of brilliance. It's as touching as it is scary, but a relatively simplistic plot and the film's ice-cold tone is off-putting, and makes the character-driven drama feel just out of reach of emotional connection. Additionally, the ending is too sudden and the conclusion ultimately unsatisfactory.

"Let the Right One In" is unmistakably Swedish in tone but, despite its gloomy exterior, is about love, a strong love, in a cold land. And the execution of this love story is one not to be missed, filled with terror and suspense and small moments of pure delight, "Let the Right One In" is a masterpiece of both horror cinema and the coming-of-age tale.

Not only the best vampire movie that I've seen in the past decade, but one of the best movies I've seen in the past decade. Watch it.

I was surprised at how similar Let the Right One In was to its American remake.
A surreal story of childhood and the supernatural mixes elements of a drama and suspense/thriller. Its strange medley of unsettling beauty delivers.
One caveat though. There is a shot of the little boy peeping in on the naked 12 year old getting dressed. Um, why the graphic nudity of an underage girl instead of tastefully suggesting what was happening? I try and chalk it up to cultural difference in appropriateness, and not let it ruin the otherwise great film.

Let the Right One In comes at a perfect time to reinvent vampires, making them more human and relatable rather than killers. Due to the high quality of the actors, the story, and the overall feel, this movie feels more like a movie about kids that features vampires in it.

One of the few "horror" films I will ever recommend. This one is uniquely beautiful.

Fría, terrorífica e increíblemente bien actuada, el filme no sólo muestra las características del género de vampiros en todo su esplendor, sino que además alcanza una complejidad emocional muy profunda. Hay pequeños cabos sueltos, pero son nimiedades que no afectan para nada a su brillantez. Todo lo que 'Crepúsculo' intenta ser y nunca consigue.
