Simple Yet Effective Poster for Matt Reeves’ Let the Right One In Remake

6 Comments

LetTheRightOneInAm I excited that the guy responsible for “Cloverfield” is helming the remake of Tomas Alfredson’s “Let the Right One In?” Not really. I suppose, if you’re illiterate or have something against Swedish cinema, the Americanized version is a good thing, as it allows you to experience this strangely heartwarming vampire story without having to listen to a foreign language while reading all of those unsightly subtitles. My attempt to disguise my bitterness towards this project has ultimately failed, though I will try my best to reserve judgment until I’ve seen the finished product for myself. If it ends up being another “Quarantine,” I will weep. Openly.

In case you missed it, here’s the premise:

An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer in his small New Mexico town and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood.

The kind individuals operating Horror-Movies.ca recently revealed the first poster for the upcoming production. You can check it out below.

Matt Reeves will unleash “Let Me In” into Stateside theaters sometime next year.

When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I am an avid supporter of the project because I see it as another vision of the story which is remarkable. Too many ppl see this as a step-parent trying to overshadow what we first loved. I dont believe that is the intent. With the casting and who is at the helm I have no doubts it will be something fantastic. There is so much to work with on the story. Im not looking for something better than LTROI, Im looking forward to a good if not great Let Me In.

    Having said that I am not too fond of this first poster. WAY too close to the LTROI DVD. Of the first posters the one of Owen and Abby holding hands in the snow was a big draw for me. This poster is kinda step backward but Im sure as production continues they will make some great teasers and promotion posters

      I’m perfectly happy with LTROI, and I’m not really interested in seeing someone else interpret the material. Maybe I’ll be completely wrong — maybe Reeves will deliver something entirely different and remarkably profound. This is, of course, wishful thinking, as I’m sure “Let Me In” is just another remake geared towards people who are afraid to read subtitles.

      Blame “Quarantine.”

    As a big fan of the book, I thought the original film was a bit disappointing. There were alot of scenes and characters that I loved that were not in the movie. If the remake is closer to the book, then i’m all for it.
