Abby is a mysterious 12-yearold who moves next door to Owen, a social outcast who is viciously bullied at school. In his loneliness, Owen forms a profound bond with his new neighbor, but he can’t help noticing that Abby is like no one he has ever met before. As a string of grisly murders grips his wintry New Mexico town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is actually a savage vampire.
Drama Fantasy - Despite the advertising campaign, this film is very much in line with
the original Swedish film Let the Right One In--a slower, more
serious drama/love story with horror elements and not a gory horror/
vampire thriller. However, the film is much too violent and intense
for kids, despite the pre-teen main characters.
PROFANITY: 13 F-words, 2 S-words, 1 GD, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sensuality with nudity. VIOLENCE: Bloody and brutal vampire attacks. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Some fights and a chase. COMEDY: None.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 53 moviegoers:
TEENS:About a third of the males loved "Let Me In." Over a third rated it above average, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. As with any movie of this type, a few rated it low to very low. The female reviews are very similar to the males only a bit lower.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two males loved it, one enjoyed it very much and two rated it only average. These are good but not great reviews. The females rated it lower. Only one loved it. The rest rated it average and below average.
ADULTS:Somewhat disappointing reviews from both the males and females, but certainly not terrible. Over half the males and nearly as many females enjoyed "Let Me In" very much, with some loving it. Unfortunately, a large percentage only rated it average and below average, which is disappointing but not terrible.
