A well-crafted horror film in the tradition of Guillermo del Toro's THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE, Swedish import LET THE RIGHT ONE IN ably blends genre chills with genuine feeling. Oskar (Kare Hedebrant) is a 12-year-old outcast who is frequently picked on by his classmates. He dreams of getting his revenge, but he never stands up to the boys. With the arrival of his new next-door neighbour, 12-year-old Eli (Lina Leandersson), Oskar may finally have found a friend, ally, and first love. But Eli is no ordinary girl: she must keep her pale skin out of the sunlight, she can perform inhuman physical feats, and she has thirst for blood. The bodies begin to pile up, but Oskar can't stay away from the girl who has finally given him courage.


Based on the novel by John Ajvide Linqvist (who also wrote the script), LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is the best kind of horror film: one that transcends the tropes of the genre to become something new. This is director Tomas Alfredson's first foray into horror, and he doesn't hesitate to include bits of vampire mythology. But his background making comedies and dramas gives the film a surprising depth; the relationship between Oskar and Eli is tentative and sweet, even though their interactions may be surrounded by blood and violence. Composer Johan Soderqvist and the sound department create a fascinating palette of music and sounds that add to the film's perfectly chilly mood, and setting the film in a snowy Swedish suburb gives director of photography Hoyte Van Hoytema a starkly beautiful environment for shooting. Though LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is ostensibly about a pair of children, this is a horror film for adults. There are plenty of scares, but it remains moving and intelligent, a rare feat for the genre.

I bought one at £5 pre-owned in blockbuster last week - if you don't mind students having eaten pizza off yours. Mine was in good condition - 6 months "guarantee".

Awesome film, and yes it will be a travesty when the Americans try to remake it...:(

I'm amazed - I found this film captivating and watched my borrowed copy twice before giving it back; even my 18yr old daughter and her boyfriend really liked it and they usually avoid subtitled films.

If you're expecting somthing along the the lines of Twilight or Van Helsing you might be disappointed but this is well worth the money.

I ordered the Asian copy a while back from Ebay as I read the US/UK release has incorrect (dumbed down) subtitles?

http://iconsoffright.com/news/2009/03/let_the_wrong_subtitles_in_to.html

Excellent movie. And it stays so true to the novel.


The UK copy I saw (bought new from blockbusters) did NOT have the dumbed down subtitles; it looks identical to the copy in this deal.

Yep. One of the best.

I want it to also brush up on my swedish, so subs shouldn't matter. :?

Yeah I watched this at the weekend after looking it up on imdb.

It isn't really a horror as such, it's a story that fuses a variety of genres and is really touching. That said, there are a couple of scenes (beautifully shot) that feature shocking brutality (i.e. the finale), but as opposed to a typical 'horror' film, these are all meaningful. It sort of reminded me of a Swedish version of a 'Beat' Takeshi movie...poignant and understated, though it gets the message across beautifully.

Definitely worth watching, regardless of the genre or language.
#22
When someone receives a copy, please could they post which version of subtitles they got?
