Am 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.
