Let the Right One In ( Låt den rätte komma in ) 
Let the Right One In - a review
3.5/4 stars

Though this movie has circulated all of the arthouse theaters and living rooms of true horror fans, I still feel as though I should pay some homage to this refreshing foreign film. Let the Right One In is frightening because it lets itself be frightening. It doesn’t force feed eerily edited images and try to spook with a simple scene. If you’re not sure what I mean by this, check out the girl found in the closet from The Ring or even better, in Jacob’s Ladder when Tim Robbins is in the hospital in the basement and he sees demons, especially the one shaking its head manically to the point of revulsion. LtROI allows the plot to propel the film and its frights come in relation to the niceties of the romance and the subplot of the vampires domestic life. It feels like a Lasse Hallström movie that just happens to have a vampire character. It’s My Life as a Dog with blood. I mean that as a very high complement. It may be the Scandinavian factor, but I believe that Alfredson captures human nature in a very holistic way, much like Hallström.
