Aro Recommended Let Me In


USA / UK 2010, 116 minutes
Dir. Matt Reeves
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Horror / Vampires, Hammer


Aroview: Justifiable American remake elevates the style and menace of the Swedish vampire hit with special attention paid to the relationship between a bullied youngster and his undead next-door neighbour.

By virtue of its faithfulness to the original material, this loses some of its impact as a second run at John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel, though it does replicate the story’s key scenes with aplomb, and even adds a thrilling car chase sequence to the mix. Central to its distinctiveness, though, is its tender portrayal of adolescent romance, with Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee both superb in challenging roles. Made under the revived "Hammer" production banner.
