Not seen it.....but the original "Let the right on in" was class, really good. Guess I have avoided Let Me In, because of this.

Soulless(no pun intended), badly paced, awful CGI of a film.

Compare it to "Låt den rätte komma in" or "Let the Right One in" and you'll understand why Hollywood rarely ever IF ever make a re-make worthy of the original.

Feck me, what a shocking remake. The only good thing about it is the tender relationship between the youngsters which even lacks to the original.

Well... If you've never seen the original work, how can you truly rate the remake??

It makes no sense to marvel at the doppelgänger, that is poorer by definition!!

i'm no film critic jsut watched the film last night and had that feeling afterwards that i'd watched a damn good film. to all the ladie bluemooners this film beats the shit out of the twilight crap.


plus foreign films with subs piss me off. i thought girl with the dragon tattoo was beyond dog shit. would rather watch silence of the lams for the 20th time than watch that crap again.

Spot on. I cant bring myself to watch this because of the original.


To anyone who enjoyed the original try "Bakjwi " (or "thirst" in english)
Its a South Korean, Chan-Wook Park, Vampire film in a simillar vein.
