"Do You Think There's Such a Thing as Evil?" I Do Now

If you qualify “evil,” as remaking one of the very best foreign horror films in recent memory for American mainstream audiences, then yes: The answer to the trailer’s question is I do believe in evil.

That said, I’ll grant the new trailer for Matt Reeves’ Let Me In this much: It’s better than the first, and it’s more apparent from this trailer that he’s trying to duplicate the original film’s tone, only now it’s flash-cuttier. I mean: This is the guy who directed Cloverfield. Not a bad director, really. It’s less a matter of how bad or good the trailer is, and more a matter of why?

It’s probably a question we should start to get over, so we can move on and try to judge Let Me In on its own merits. But it wouldn’t really matter how great the trailer is for now — and I think Richard Jenkins and Chloe Moretz are solid casting choices — it still smarts.

For the rest of you purists out there, let’s get over ourselves, right? Sit back and enjoy the bastardization of a great fucking vampire film.
