New images and the first official clip from Let Me In online

We’ve just received new images from Cloverfield director Matt Reeves’ youth vampire horror Let Me In, the remake of the brilliant Tomas Alfredson Swedish horror film Let the Right One In, a movie probably more popular now, than when it was in limited release in the U.S. in 2008.

Matt Reeves knows he’s up against a wave of cult fans, including myself, that worship the original film in so many ways. However, based on the clips screened at San Diego Comic-Con in July, along with recently released footage, he seems up for the challenge.

In the film Let Me In, Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl from Kick-Ass) plays Abby, a mysterious 12-year old girl, who moves next door to Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road). 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 occupy the town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is really a savage vampire.

Let Me In is produced by legendary British horror film production company Hammer Films, is based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma (Let The Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and the highly-acclaimed aforementioned film of the same name.
