I just can’t wrap my head around the Let the Right One In remake, regardless of today’s buzz over this new clip. Dustin posted the international trailer a while back and that was just awful. Admittedly, this clip is better. It has a bit of a Halloween vibe to it, what with the goings on going on right under peoples’ noses and a little bit of the Silence of the Lambs rock song signaling mayhem thing - those sorts of real life moody sequences really toast my marshmallows. Still, I fail to see this as anything other than a let’s-get-in-on-the-hot-vampire-trend-and-make-some-money scam.
Have a look and weigh in.
Opening October 1, 2010, Let Me In is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and stars Richard Jenkins, Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smitt-McPhee.
