Let Me In

This is the American remake of the Swedish original, which I somehow missed.

Starring Chloe Moretz from Kick Ass as a 12 year old vampire girl.

A totally twisted movie!

8/10

You really do need to see the original.

Mark Kermode summed the two up like this- the original is a film about kids, which just happens to include a vampire. "Let me in" is a film about a vampire, that just happens to include kids.

I quite liked the original. I haven't seen the remake, but I'm not so sure I should.

The thing to say is that you should see the original. However, the reviews of the new one are quite good as well. I think they need to be watched both as good movies with different perspectives.

Exactly.

I'm sure I saw an inferior product to the original, however this is what was on offer to me at the time and I enjoyed it for what it was.

I am virtually certain I will also enjoy the other film and will reserve it to see soon on DVD.
