Let the Right One In

Fantasy Drama Horror Thriller


 

Oscar, a young bullied boy, meets Eli, a beautiful girl who turns out to be a vampire.

If you thought all the original ideas for vampire movies had been used up, think again. Set in Sweden, this film uses the icy, austere conditions to illustrate and emphasise the lonely isolation of its young protagonists. This film holds nothing back as it deals with issues of first love and bullying, contrasted against the violent world of the vampire. The young stars are astonishingly good, and this innovative movie rates highly among the alumni of its genre.
