Let Me In Reviews

October 1, 2010
The scariest, creepiest and most elegantly filmed horror movie I've seen in years -- it positively drives a stake through the competition.

Let Me In wants to make your flesh crawl, and it probably will. But it's unlikely to ever get under anyone's skin, the way Let the Right One In did.

Let Me In represents one of the best and most brutal vampire movies to come along in a while...
September 30, 2010
This is more than a respectful remake; Let Me In is quietly stylish and thoroughly chilling in its own right.
September 30, 2010
If you've never seen the original, you may not sense that something's missing. And the casting is in some ways an improvement.
September 30, 2010
Despite being about vampires, Let Me In can feel chillingly real.
September 30, 2010
It's a heartbreaker of a coming-of-age tale, even if there's a string of exsanguinated corpses to be accounted for.
September 30, 2010
I thought for sure that any Hollywood remake of Tomas Alfredson's artful Swedish vampire film, Let the Right One In, would be a crass desecration. Well, color me blushing.
September 30, 2010
It's an honorable attempt, but there's still no genuine need for this film to exist.
September 30, 2010
The Americanized version is a nice parlor trick, and will satisfy those who believe fidelity is the principal virtue of a good adaptation, but what's the point?
September 30, 2010
The language has been changed to English, of course, which is the only real reason this movie exists; the story development, desolate tone, and key set pieces are mostly copied from the original movie.
September 30, 2010
The original was a very good thriller. The new one is simply a good one.
September 30, 2010
Reeves understands what made the first film so eerie and effective, and here the same things work again.
September 29, 2010
Reeves's direction lunges more resolutely for the mainstream jugular, but that's no bad thing.
September 29, 2010
Reeves hasn't just remade the Swedish cult vampire film Let the Right One In into a more fluid and visceral movie. He's made it more dangerous.
September 29, 2010
This is a really good movie, good enough that whether it needed to be made is beside the point. If you've seen the original, you'll be happy with the results. If you haven't, then just sit back and enjoy.
September 29, 2010
If I hadn't seen the original, I might have gone ga-ga over Reeves' version. But even with the shock of novelty gone, the film still draws you into its chilly, demonic heart.
September 29, 2010
The new Let Me In does more than merely preserve the original's mood; it actually improves on it.
September 28, 2010
Rest assured, much of what made the first film so special remains intact.
September 28, 2010
There's a human tragedy somewhere here -- but aggrandized puppy-love romance and stylish revenge fantasy is all that lingers.
