Oskar is having a tough time at school. A strange and quiet boy, Oskar finds himself without any friends and worse yet, he's constantly tortured by a vicious pack of bullies. When the beautiful and mysterious Eli moves into the apartment next-door, Oskar finds himself with a new, yet reluctant friend who teaches him to stand up to his tormentors. However, Eli holds a dark secret. Blood-drained bodies soon begin turning up all over town. Visionary director Tomas Alfredson puts a unique spin on the classic vampire genre, subtly keeping the traditional conventions, while introducing themes of innocence, companionship and first loves. Far from simply a horror film, the result is a coming of age tale, using vampirism as a simple tool to tell the common lessons of friendship and trust that life teaches all of us. "Let the Right One In" recalls classics like "My Life as a Dog" to create a clever, patient and ultimately touching work with a killer ending, that will most surely chill its way into your heart. (Mike Lerman)
