Let The Right One In (2008) Review
Not to be confused with the US version, Let the Right One In directed by Tomas Alfredson is another great vampire movie. The tone and feel of this vampire film are both that of terror to a small town and that of pity for the vampire. The vampire comes in the shape of a little girl who looks both timid and weak but carries a deadly secret. Eli (Lina Leandersson) drinks the blood of her victims with little remorse, but you still care for her character as that is the only way for her to sustain her undead life.
I do not want to give away the plot, but Eli needs new help and finds that in little Oskar (Kare Hedebrant). There is a great scene where Eli walks into Oskar’s home without being invited and blood drains from the body. Oskar feels such remorse/pity for Eli that he quickly invites her in.
