Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has been charged with filling Alfredson's considerable boots, and he does a fine job of not steering too far from the original, while also putting his own stamp on the vampire tale.

Exploring the world of good and evil is a common theme in cinema, but few have been able to create such a fine line between the two as cleverly done in Let Me In.

Let Me In doesn't need to exist unless, that is, the very notion of Swedish cinema is strange and unpalatable to you.
October 14, 2014
As far as remakes go, this is a pretty good one.
October 7, 2013
Let Me In is one of the few horror films that will trouble you long after the credits roll.
October 7, 2013
With its mix of true-blood romance and full-moon madness, Let Me In should hasten the twilight of the twerpy pretenders.
October 7, 2013
The result, though no less creepy than the Swedish film, mislays its lyricism and otherworldliness.

A solid vampire remake doubles as a solid work of cinematic vampirism.
November 9, 2010
Let Me In isn't as rich or daring as Let the Right One In and seldom improves on it - but it plays better as a horror film, more concentrated in its focus on the creepy and shocking aspects of its unusual love story.

To those who admired the Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In this American remake will not cause offence, though it signally lacks the original's haunting impact.
November 4, 2010
A surprisingly personal reimagination that will shake up mainstream horror cinema.

A very good film, slightly overpraised, has been remade as a slightly good film, very overpraised.
November 4, 2010
The Swedish original, Let the Right One In, was blanched, spooky and sombre. This remake by Matt Cloverfield Reeves misses almost everything.
November 3, 2010
What more could you want? Great reviews, awards-season glory, lousy ticket sales. Maybe Reeves made an art movie after all.
November 3, 2010
Not as deep as the original, but certainly more of a crowdpleaser -- and it's hard to imagine a more intelligent and well-crafted American horror being released this year.
October 31, 2010
Has the emotional depth to break your heart as well as stop it.
October 15, 2010
Let Me In is a rare example of a film that gives remakes a good name.
October 13, 2010
Stunningly photographed on wintry locations by Australia's talented Greig Fraser, the film is unnerving throughout, but it's more than just a horror film.
October 4, 2010
The poetic Swedish vampire picture (with arterial spray) Let the Right One In has been hauntingly well transplanted to the high desert of Los Alamos, New Mexico, and renamed Let Me In.
October 2, 2010
The tragedy in Jenkins' pathetic protector focuses the film's themes of desperation and the myopia of puppy love when you're young enough (or undead enough) to feel immortal
