Let Me In
Directed by Matt Reeves
Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) stars as 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.

Faithful remake of the modern Swedish classic is a worthy addition to the canon in its own right.
Nothing beats the original. If you are so inclined, the Swedish version is free on Tubi.
A good movie. Original is vastly superior, but you could do worse than watching this one.
Was ok, original is SO much better
Not nearly as creepy as the original 2008 Swedish film entitled "Let the right one in" which was much more atmospheric and a better movie in terms of acting, atmosphere, lighting and original music. In the original movie it was alluded to that "Eli" was original male (it's in the novel)... this version lost so much of what made the 2008 movie great imo.
