Let the Right One In was one of the best movies of 2009, and the idea of an American remake of the Swedish horror film is a very bad one. That said all the promotional material to date has given the impression that the production values on the newly retitled Let Me In will be up to scratch. Today, courtesy of MTV we see a brand new teaser poster for the movie.
The official synopsis is as follows:
Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) stars as Abby, a secretive 12-year old girl, who moves next door to Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Owen is a social outcast who is viciously bullied at school and, in his loneliness, forms a profound bond with his new neighbor. Owen can’t help noticing that Abby is like no one he has ever met before. As a string of grisly murders occupies the town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is really a savage vampire.
Let Me In, a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and produced by legendary British horror brand Hammer Films, is an astonishing coming-of-age story between a young girl and an alienated young boy unlike any other you have seen. Based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat Den Ratte Komma (Let the Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the highly acclaimed film of the same name, Let Me In takes audiences straight to the troubled heart of adolescent longing and loneliness.”
The movie is out October 29th in the UK and Ireland, just in time for a Halloween scare.
