a highly original and enjoyable vampire tale.
Let Me In stars two young, but extremely talented, actors: Chloe Moritz as Abby and Kodi Smit-McFee (The Road) as Owen. Both give astonishing performances that transcend the usual vampire tale. There are no pale heart throbs here, and yet there is more emotion and character investment than a typical slasher film. This positions Let Me in – a remake of the Swedish film, Let the Right One In – as a highly original and enjoyable vampire tale.
This newer film is a haunting and oddly redemptive tale of two children, both lonely, both with secrets. Owen is being bullied and threatened at school and is neglected by both his parents, who are going through a divorce. He steals money from his mother and buys candy and a pen knife which fuels his fantasy of defending himself at school. Abbey has a much older and gruesome secret, one that should be more horrifying than it is, but her well written and superbly acted character makes us care for her, despite her supernatural urges and abilities. (Okay, she drinks blood; nobody’s perfect.)
The film owes much to its excellent direction by Matt Reeves, (Felicity) as well as its soundtrack and also its sound editing. The classic creepy movie noises – screeching hinges, slamming doors, gasps of surprise and screams of pain – come across as pristine and new in this film, whose overall mood is also enhanced by its locale: the stark winter landscape of New Mexico and the courtyard of a sad, low rent apartment building.
Reeves also gives much homage in this film to both John Ford and Clint Eastwood as well as Hitchcock. Ford and Eastwood for the carefully constructed shots that border on iconic: of figures in doorways, or shadows highlighted against the winter snow. Hitchcock for the recurring scenes of sudden violence, that while gruesome, also became somewhat rote and thus, more threatening: See how easy it is to kill someone?
The inherent suspense of this movie should have been diluted by the fact that the trailer and also the early available information on this film both reveal that the haunting and haunted young girl, Abbey, is a vampire. And yet, even with that information in hand, we are surprised by how much we like her, and begin to understand the awkward, deeply emotional relationship that develops gradually between the two children, who find a bond in their mutual isolation and outcast status. Like Owen, we are aware of the violence that Abbey represents but against our own good judgment, (and all that blood) we will feel ourselves liking her and rooting for a good (if not happy) ending. (This review won’t spoil the ending for you other than to say it is both expected and unexpected.)
A strong supporting cast rounds out the film: Dylan Minnette (Saving Grace) plays the despicable school yard bully who is ultimately revealed to be a victim in his own family; Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Burn After Reading) adroitly plays the tortured older man who many believe to be Abbey’s father.
Best for viewers who enjoy thrillers. Unlike most slasher films, Let Me In conveyed strong, believable, emotion, pathos, and inevitable empathy for a character who many would not want to meet on a moonless night. But be aware that it also had a lot of blood and gore. Good for older teens and above only. Leave grandma home, but see this film.
Stop right there if you think this is a horror film. This film dances around a horror atmosphere while hiding in the shadows of a thriller. It’s actually first and foremost, a romance.
Chloe Moretz, of Hit-Girl fame from Kick-Ass, plays a child vampire who moves in next door to a boy named Owen, who is very much alone and bullied at school. Owen’s mother is an alcoholic who won sole custody and Owen’s father is not allowed to come around. Moretz once again steals the show as the tragic character of Abby.
Let Me In is an adaptation, written and directed by Matt Reeves, of the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In. Barely anything has been changed from the original story, but the cinematography, some dialogue, different actors and adjusted characters make for a new movie. Although many fans of the original boycotted this film for months, Let Me In will allow for the original to be viewed.
Matt Reeves does an excellent job and I’ve enjoyed his first two films I’ve seen. Let Me In and Cloverfield are his only two pieces of work I’ve seen and they are his most popular thus far.
This is a romance because it plays very intimately between the two lead actors. The scenes between Owen and Abby are tender and very romantic for the age of the characters. It’s surprising to see how well two child actors can be this mature and loving with such a great chemistry. It has some thrills and chills and there’s room for drama but it’s definitely meant to be a romance.
Personally, I’ve not seen the original film, but I do think this is a great film in its own right. It certainly did a good job to get me interested in watching the original whenever I get a chance.
It has a very short list of cast, as the only other names I can recognize are Richard Jenkins and Elias Koteas. Their involvement is less than secondary characters and even then they are still overshadowed by the breathtaking Moretz. At 13 years of age, Moretz amounts maturity and skill in her acting as much as an adult can. Her timing and delivery is well-established and crafted almost as if she’s been doing this work for decades.
I can’t say anything bad about Let Me In because I haven’t seen the original to compare and mostly because I really enjoyed the movie. Perhaps it’s my favourtism of romance movies and I am fascinated by Moretz and child actor leads, but whatever the reason, I believe Let Me In is going to be a great success with audiences.
