Movie Review: Let The Right One In

Let The Right One In is a really good swedish arthouse vampire flick that is really great in the face of almost insurmountable odds. This problem being that it features a vampire who is also... brace yourself... a little girl:

The movie was awesome and it didn't get bogged down in this well-fucking-worn concept at all. I thought I needed no more culture of any kind with this apparently shocking disjunction between the innocence of the child and... y'know... being a fucking vampire and killing people. But Let The Right One In makes the obvious points well and quickly and is never heavy handed. I liked it a lot.
