For every moment of bloodshed [and] special effects ... there are subtleties and surprises that transcend this exhausted genre.

Acaba funcionando também como uma contundente alegoria sobre a imprevisibilidade da natureza humana, que traz, em sua imensa diversidade, monstros infinitamente piores do que aqueles com longos caninos.

If Twilight is the Vampire film for starry-eyed teenage girls, Let the Right One In is the Vampire film for everyone else.

As layered as its title (lifted from the Morrissey song, Let The Right One Slip In), this is the most original vampire movie since Guillermo del Toro's Cronos, and is likely to hit every top ten films list of the year.

A true original: love story, horror film and social drama. At once brilliant in its parts, and more than the sum of them.

It's everything Twilight wanted to be but wasn't: beautiful to gaze at, achingly romantic, emotionally involving, unexpectedly terrifying.

The fact that it doesn't feel like a vampire flick at all makes it one of the best of its kind.

Kåre Hedebrant as Oskar and Lina Leandersson as Eli both give incredibly sensitive performances.

Let the Right One In manages its own sense of doubleness with uncommon daring: you don't see many love stories that bring together pubescence and vampirism in such an elegant clinch.

Daily Express (UK)

Beautifully crafted and expertly acted, Let The Right One In eschews the easy options of excessive gore and cheap laughs to create a haunting, emotionally involving journey into the macabre. It can only become a classic of the genre.
