A different vampire-themed film, more serious, realistic and intense. This horror drama presents a more original approach into the classic blood-sucking character, making it more raw and at the same time, more human. The direction, music and art are impeccable, featuring some really amazing shots and sequences that help the environment created by the film and that we definitely don't see every day. Also, thanks to impressive performances from its two young leads and a great original score, "Let Me In" doesn't allow you to look away at any time, capturing your whole attention, immersing you into the events happening before your eyes, understanding the characters, feeling very close to them, perhaps way too close, as at the end, the movie leaves you with a haunting feeling of paranoia and uncertainty, a mix of emotions and a finale truly hard to forget.
"It wasn't as fun as Saw II, but it was far more disturbing, and the story was still kind of acceptable... except for lead guy Angus Macfadyen, I hated him so much, he was like REALLY annoying. And also, the twist wasn't that big this time around..."

"Saw VI was a surprising big improvement from the past couple of films, it was more complex, it had more history, the traps were way more clever, anyway, they got our attention back... It ranks 2nd place on the saga"

This psychological thriller about a man with a split personality is ultimately a mixbag. It is thrilling, it keeps your full attention on the movie the whole time and it definitely gave me the chills. Cillian Murphy is once again, amazing, his portrayal of both personalities is impressive and unnerving.
Still I had some issues with the progression of the story. I feel the innitial planning and plot had essentialy a lot of potential, but it wasn't fully excecuted as it could have been. Specially at the end, which I believe could have been way more disturbing, actually, if it had ended about 5 minutes before its real ending, it would have been amazing.
However, Peacock succeeds in keeping its audience entertained and leaving them thinking afterwards about the obscure nature of people, not to mention a haunting character that will probably follow you for a long time after you've seen the film.
