    "Let Me In" - Planning on seeing it this weekend?

    Every review I've read has given it a favorable write-up. Just looked it up on Rotten Tomatoes and It has 93%. That said, I will definitely be in attendance this weekend. I'm looking forward to Chloe and Kodi on screen together.

    I recommend paying First Showing a visit to read/watch (they have some video) the review from TIFF. I thought they did a particularly good job of covering the film. Note: they reference some scenes from the film in the review. You can actually see a couple of those scenes on "OvertureFilms" YouTube channel. E.g. the car accident scene is on there.

    http://www.firstshowing.net/2010/09/...ble-let-me-in/

    ** Also check out Horror.com review. They make pretty cool observation about the film score. I prob would not have caught that one. Def worth the read as well. http://www.horror.com/php/article-3338-1.html

    I'll watch this eventually. I'm cool with the chosen actors and it looks as though they'll stick pretty close to the story. As long as it doesn;t feel half-assed like Quarantine vs. Rec it should at least be a pretty good watch. And I know a lot of people that won;t watch Let the Right One In due to the language barrier so it'll be nice to share the story with them on their level.
    Let the Right One In is a beautiful film... I just hope they catch some of that artistry.

    Well it's a slow moving, underage, homosexual love story.

    Guess Ogre is waiting for his own "strangelove"

    Pretty sure the vamp in the original was a castrated boy. The movie was good and had some nice atmospheric scenes but definitely over-hyped.

    Over hyped? I didn't know anything about it until someone posted that they liked it here on UHM. And it was a girl... a female... a chick.

    The chick is definitely a dude and I really enjoyed the OG. This looks like it might move a bit faster though and so with that I'm interested.

    In the book, it's a castrated boy. That's why in the original when he is looking at "her" undressing, you see that scar. Obviously the actor playing the girl is..a girl, but in the book it was a boy who was castrated hundreds of years in advance. That's also why, even if she is supposed to look 13, "she" has no tits.

    it is a homosexual love story, but I like it .

    Btw, in this adaptation they're gonna rape it with CGI.

    Are you sure the vampire is a chick??? It's a boy and it's shown pretty quickly when she's changing "her" clothes. Oskar tries to take a look and gaze at her and sees the scar.

    A friend of mine didn't notice and I had to explain him what he missed.

    Nope, the vamp in the book and in the film is a castrated male child. That's why he kept saying "i'm not a girl". it wasn't in reference to being a vampire, it was in reference to him being a boy/male. In the book it gave the back story on the castration, in the film they left that out but still made him a castrated boy. When you're castrated you develop female features, as you have no more testosterone. Boobs, body hair falls out, voice lightens, etc..

    But yeah it's a castrated boy in the book and the film, you just want to ignore it to feel better about the incredibly perverse storyline.

    a castrated boy....I guess my mind didnt wanna notice that when I saw the scars. Thats just fucked up. Why did they castrate him? Did the book tell that? I wonder if they'll keep that in remake. The original was only meh, took me 2 settings to get through it. This remake looks pretty faithful to it so I'll just rent it.
