This Friday, October 24th, Magnolia Pictures’ Magnet will release Let The Right One In, the first in their Six Shooter Film Series of the best in indie genre films. To celebrate the release, Magnet is providing FilmFetish.com with a movie poster signed by director Tomas Alfredson, and the English adaption of the Swedish best-selling novel that inspired the film. CLICK HERE to read my review of this darkly poetic tale of horror, friendship and loyalty.
This is a truly special contest. Why you ask? Well, aside from the fact that the film is a gem, J.J. Abrams recently nabbed remake rights to Let the Right One In. That means a poster signed by the director of the original, will be a film buff’s treasure. It really should be anyway.

More about Let the Right One In
A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy’s wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn’t seem affected by the freezing temperatures.
Coinciding with Eli’s arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. One man is found tied to a tree, another frozen in the lake, a woman bitten in the neck. Blood seems to be the common denominator – and for an introverted boy like Oskar, who is fascinated by gruesome stories, it doesn’t take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire. But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Oskar becomes increasingly aware of the tragic, inhuman dimension of Eli’s plight, but cannot bring himself to forsake her. Frozen forever in a twelve-year-old’s body, with all the burgeoning feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent, Eli knows that she can only continue to live if she keeps on moving. But when Oskar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can.
