Let Me Inblends the innocent face of Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) with the darkness of vampirism. A young boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee,The Road) has troubles at home (his parents are divorcing) and at school (bullies pick on him mercilessly). But when a mysterious girl named Abby (Moretz) moves in next door, Owen hopes he's found a friend, even though she smells a little strange. Unfortunately, his new friend needs blood to live, and the man who seems to be her father (Richard Jenkins,Six Feet Under) goes out to drain local residents to feed her. But even as Owen starts to suspect something is wrong, having a real friend might just matter more. Because the Swedish film adaptation of the novelLet the Right One In(on whichLet Me Inis based) was surprisingly popular and critically acclaimed, it's going to be hard forLet Me Into avoid comparisons. Surprisingly, it retains much of the flavor and spirit of the original. It's not as understated--this is an American movie, after all--and some of the creepiness is lost along with that subtlety. Despite that,Let Me Inhas its own spookiness and the performances (including Elias Koteas,Zodiac, as a local policeman) are strong. Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield).--Bret Fetzer

My husband and I got Let Me In in the mail yesterday from Netflix. After dinner, we decided to watch it and both of us really enjoyed it. I especially liked when Abby got Owen to stand up for himself. I was cheering from the couch. This isn't your average vampire movie, it's unique and fresh. I highly recommend it to horror lovers.
