After two successful edition of Pajiba Movie Club — most recently featuring a lively discussion of race as it pertained to a zombie movie — we are moving ahead with a third. It’s close to Halloween, so it seems appropriate that we tackle another horror movie, of sorts. More importantly, as George, who made this recommendation, notes: “Seeing as the no doubt horrid New Moon will be released this November, and the even worse Transylmania will be released two weeks after New Moon, why don’t we watch a vampire movie this month that’s actually good. Let the Right One In is a deep, phenomenal Swedish film that’s available to watch on Netflix Instant.”
It’s a great recommendation, too, because Let the Right One In is a film on the must-see list of a lot of folks who just haven’t had a good excuse to pull the trigger. This is that excuse, and a timely one at that, since Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) already has an American remake in the works. Don’t be that person who sees the watered-down American version first. Let the Right One In is a creepy, touching, fantastic vampire film, every bit as good as all the hype you’ve heard about it.
The next installment of the Pajiba Movie Club will take place the Tuesday before Halloween: On Tuesday, October 27th. Once again, we’re going to run it at 3:00 p.m. EST, to ensure that our European readers can get in early on the discussion, particularly since it’s that part of the world responsible for this gem.
Reminders will be issued between now and then. Otherwise, we’ll see you there.
