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.
Check out the clip below.
