Movie Review: Let Me In

KevinG4
Posted October 1, 2010 - By Kevin Kelly

Writer / director Matt Reeves had one film under his belt behind the camera before Let Me In, and that was Cloverfield. In all honesty, I really enjoyed Cloverfield and how it departed from the typical monster-movie fare. Which was all the more reason to be concerned about Let Me In. The movie is Reeves' adaptation of the 2008 Swedish film Let The Right One In, which was in turn based on the 2004 Swedish novel of the same name. Confused yet? Well, you'll be even more confused after you read my review of this film, which I saw at the opening movie at Austin's geek/genre film festival, Fantastic Fest.

But, to save you headache and confusion at the box office, I will say this: I both recommend and condemn this film at the same time. Read on to find out why.
