A barrage of promotional items have been released for the upcoming horror movie Let Me In. A remake of the 2008 Swedish movie Let the Right One In, it tells the story of a lonely boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) whose new friend (Chloe Moretz) happens to be a vampire.
Two new posters have debuted, both of which depict Moretz and include the tagline "innocence dies ... Abby doesn't." Real horror fans will be interested in the latest photo released by Empire, which shows a bloody Moretz creeping up behind Smit-McPhee. see the newest clip >> Posted 09.09.10 by Ryan
At last month's San Diego Comic-Con, the cast of Let Me In — a US remake of 2008 Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In — conducted a panel discussion on how this new version of the story differs to the foreign original.
Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Richard Jenkins (Dear John), and director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) all weighed in with their thoughts on the movie, which like the original is an adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's bestselling novel. see what all four had to say >> Posted 08.07.10 by reelz
While the recent news from this year's San Diego Comic-Con has concentrated mostly on comic book movies, director Matt Reeves and his suburban vampire tale Let Me In also made an appearance at the convention. Based on the Swedish movie, Let the Right One In, Let Me In takes childhood loneliness and mixes it with the undead and setting the story in America. Kodi Smit-McPhee plays Owen, a lonely and bullied boy who befriends the young girl who has moved in next door (Chloe Moretz), and who also happens to be a vampire.
During the Let Me In panel, Moretz admitted she still hasn't watched all of the Swedish original. "My mom won't let me watch the whole film," said the young actress. Moretz was allowed to watch several clips from the movie as they were shown during the panel, however, and while those haven't made it online yet, a bloody new poster and a new domestic trailer have. another bloody trailer >> Posted 07.28.10 by Ryan
Hot on the heels of the first trailer, we've got a look at the first official movie poster for Matt Reeves' Let Me In. It's only a teaser, so admittedly it's not all that exciting, but the movie itself has been getting a lot of positive buzz.
Let Me In is a remake of Tomas Alfredson's Let the Right One In which was a swedish movie adaptation of a book by John Lindqvist about innocent love entangled in murder, mystery, and horror. The movie follows a young boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is frequently bullied; and a young girl (Chloe Moretz) that moves in next door who, it turns out, is a vampire and, after losing her caretaker, must somehow survive alone.
There is an interesting side-by-side comparison that UGO has put together with examples from both movies showing the same scenes. Definitely worth a look. Posted 07.06.10 by reelz
Finally, a new trailer for the vampire movie that horror fans are talking about: Let Me In, the American remake of Let the Right One In. Like its Swedish predecessor, Let Me In tells the story of a lonely, young boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who befriends a girl next door (Chloe Moretz) who happens to be a vampire.
Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) directs the movie, and has described it as "darker, scarier" vampire movie compared to other, (ahem) contemporary movies about vampires. Watch the new footage in the international trailer below. Posted 07.01.10 by Ryan
Let Me In, the American remake of the Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In, starts production today, transporting the coming-of-age tale from the cold and blustery Stockholm, Sweden to the dry and hot Albuquerque, New Mexico. Director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) is returning to the source material for Let the Right One In, the Swedish novel of the same name by author John Ajvide Lindqvist, to help inspire the story about a young boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee from The Road) who befriends a mysterious new girl in town (Chloe Moretz from the upcoming Kick-Ass), who happens to be a vampire.
With Richard Jenkins already cast as Moretz's caretaker, the new cast additions announced are Elias Koteas as the policeman, Cara Buono (The Sopranos) as Smit McPhee's mother, and Sasha Barrese (The Hangover) as Virginia, the character who survives a vampire attack in the Swedish original.
Reeves intends to pay homage to the Swedish version in Let Me In, but wants to take the story in his own direction. "This project is very personal to Matt as it is to the many passionate fans of the original story," said producer Simon Oakes. "The brilliance of that story deserves to be seen by audiences on a wide scale and we are excited that the pieces are in place to make that a reality."
When foreign horror movies do well critically, they're often remade in America, but time will tell if Let Me In will work as well as The Ring, or become a debacle like Quarantine, which couldn't do justice to the Spanish zombie movie [Rec] it was based on.
Shooting on Let Me In will start in Albuquerque and travel to various parts of New Mexico. With a projected end for the shoot sometime in January, we expect to see its original release date of January 15, 2010 pushed back. Posted 11.03.09 by Ryan
