Two more posters for Matt Reeves’s “Let Me In” remake of the Swedish vampire flick “Let the Right One In”. Via Empire.

An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer in his small New Mexico town, and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood in Let Me In, a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield). Twelve-year old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar®nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond. When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself. Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.

Starring Chloe Moretz, Elias Koteas, Richard Jenkins, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sasha Barrese, Cara Buono, Jimmy ‘Jax’ Pinchak, Chris Browning, Dylan Minnette, and directed by Matt Reeves of “Cloverfield” fame.

Let’er in October 1, 2010.

    Yet another foreign film that SHOULD NOT be remade. The Swedish film “Let The Right One In” is one of the most fabulous films I have seen in 10 years. LEAVE IT ALONE!!! Geez. So tired of all these remakes (Shutter, Dark Water, A Tale Of Two Sisters, One Missed Call, Ringu, The Eye). And they are remaking “The Host” as well. I guess Hollywood really has run out of ideas. Next, they will talk about remaking “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” trilogy from Sweden or worse remake the “Death Note” or “20th Century Boys” films.

    damn it this better be good because i think the original is probably the most amazing and beautifully done films ever. The actors, the scenes, everything was brilliant. And if the American remake is bad, I fear it will taint my taste for the original…
