When the Swedish original, Let the Right One in, came out, I absolutely loved it. When I heard there was going to be an American remake, I was not excited. I thought the original would be ruined. I looked up the actors for it and wasn't as disappointed and then it came out with amazing reviews. I put it in my netflix queue to see what all the hype was about. Wow! It really was amazing. The american version even seemed a bit more evil in some ways. I didn't catch from the Swedish version that she kind of had a strategy to replace her old caretaker with a new one. Brilliant in so many ways.
