Let Me In 
Fan'g'tastic!
3/4 stars

This is the American remake of the Swedish film "Let the Right One In". It is difficult to watch this and not compare the two films, they both stand out as great pieces of work and both are fine examples of the vampire genre movie that is firmly miles away from the Twilight type stories. (No sparkling vampires here)

Kodi Smit Mcfee is wonderful as Owen, a twelve year old boy who is unmercifully teased and bullied at school. He is extremely lonely and dreams of one day getting his revenge. As he sits in the snow covered courtyard where he lives he meets another lonely person, a young girl played by Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass) who has just moved to the area with her 'dad' and they strike up a friendship. However Abby is no ordinary girl and the man she lives with is not her dad. She is a vampire who needs to feed off victims' blood to stay alive. Owen is not turned off by the fact that Abby is so different and the claims that "she is not a girl". He accepts her for who or what she is and the "forbidden romance" element to this is beautiful! Owen meanwhile continues to get bullied, but encouraged by Abby begins to fights back, but this leads the bullies wanting further revenge which leads to horrific outcome.

There was great debate as to whether a remake would tarnish the nearly flawless original but I have to say they were both good and this is a faithful remake.
