Abbey, a mysterious 12-year-old, moves next door to Owen, a social outcast who is viciously bullied at school.

As a string of grisly murders grips his New Mexico town, Owen must confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is actually a savage vampire.

You don't need permission to watch this film
Verified purchase
Although the stock photo shows it called Blood Story its actually called Let Me In.
An absolute direct copy of the original Let The Right One In but in English.
If you've never seen either I won't spoil it but I will say the Swedish version is a little gem of a film with a bit of a twist to it.
This American version stars a young Chloé Grace Moretz as the strange neighbour who only comes out at night, sleeps in a covered bath during daylight and needs your permission to cross your threshold.
That's all I'm giving away

I've got and watched both the Swedish with English subs and American versions, I prefer the Swedish version to be honest, but as I said, this is a direct rip of the Swedish film, or is it the other way round?
Whatevs!

Which ever version you watch Its one of those films where once you start watching, you have no choice but to watch it all way through till the very end just to see what happens (so typical of foreign films) but you'll be glad you did.

“That’s just the way it is.” [Abby]
Verified purchase
In this 2010 fantasy romantic horror a disfigured man is taken to the hospital where he commits suicide, leaving behind a scrawled note that reads "I'm sorry Abby." Two weeks earlier, 12-year-old bullied loner, Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) sees a young girl named Abby (Chloë Grace Moretz) and an older man moving in next door and they become close friends and she encourages him to retaliate. But where will it all lead and what secrets will be revealed?
From the dramatic opening scenes, this shows promise as we are instantly aware that Owen has some disturbing ‘issues’ but the prequel type start spoils the suspense somewhat [lose a *]. The music is suitably atmospheric and the two youngsters are absolutely superb in their respective roles and it’s easy to forget the horror and begin viewing this as a touching young love story -before the horror kicks back in [regain a *]. There are some gory scenes and suitably scary moments, but the true horror is the reality of the bullying and the strong bond that develops between the two main characters.
The single disc plays two trailers before going to main menu offering play, set up [5.1/audio commentary, subtitles English shd/none], scene selection and special features [making of, special effects, car crash step by step, tv special, deleted scenes, poster and stills gallery].
With some child swearing, nudity in the form of a naked breast and some morally disturbing themes [if you consider the basic love angle –touched on in ‘Vampire Diaries’] this will not settle well with everyone. Although highly entertaining with some strong tension and suspense, there are some slower sections, especially in the early part, but a definite ***** recommendation.

An underrated gem
Verified purchase
This is a great film, from the original take on the vampire genre to the excellent acting by two young actors early in their careers. I also recommend watching the original (Swedish) version of this film titled 'Let the right one in', the story line in both are the same but they have been shot in different ways by each director which gives each film an original atmosphere and feel.

"Let Me In"... ? ... NOPE .... "LET ME OUT" 😤🤯🙄
Verified purchase
This is a VERY lame film... To be perfectly honest... It's TRULY AWFUL !!
Do yourself a HUGE favour & watch the foreign language (Swedish) version "Let The Right One In"... It is far, FAR SUPERIOR !!
The only good thing about "Let Me Out"... Sorry, I mean "Let Me In" is the superbly talented Chlöe Grace Moretz... BUT, even her acting "talent" is VERY questionable in this, truly, awfully dire film.
"Let The Right One In" maybe in Swedish, but I assure you that it is an INFINITELY better portrayal of this Lindqvist written phenomenon.
"Let Me Out"... I'm not a Celebrity & "Let Me In" will do NOTHING to enhance the Celebrity status of Chlöe Grace Moretz !!
POOR remakes & misinterpretations... Sorry, I meant to say reinterpretations should always be avoided like the plague and this film is NO exception to the rule !! 🙄🤐😝 TERRIBLE 🤯😤😨

Worth 116 minutes of anybodies time
Verified purchase
I am a huge film fan. Back in the day I used to have 500+ DVD's, now I only buy Blu-rays if I feel that a film really deserves it.

When I first started watching this film I got about 10 minutes in and I wanted to switch it off. I never normally give up on a movie so I decided to give it another 5 minutes. I'm so glad I did. This was one of my films of the year in 2011.

It's a beautiful film, a remake of a Swedish horror, but an amazing film never the less. The acting is wonderful, the atmosphere and 'feel' of the film is first class, it's simply a joy to watch.

Even if you're not a fan of the horror genre, this is worth 116 minutes of anybodies time.

Tacky, over simplified American version of the true original.
Verified purchase
I watched the original when if came in the cinemas and for the second time this year. Then I watched this version.

If your after cheap thrills and over explaining dialogue then watch this version. Because it really is for people who find it hard to concentrate for more then 20 minutes at a time. The acting isn't terrible, I just didn't find the lead female all that convincing. This was almost like a harry potter version of the Swedish original, carefully placed frights/bangs and ques in the script just in case you got bored. Like a lot of money generating films these days, embarrassing!

Of course, it could depends on which version you watched first but I thought Lina Leandersson performance in the Swedish film was mind blowing, she embodied her adult character perfectly. You'd almost think she was 200 years old.

Easy watching bump in the night American version? (also a carbon copy of the original) or Art at it's finest?

Wonderful Coming Of Age
Verified purchase
Excellent coming of age movie set in a beautiful atmosphere. The director focuses on realism here with stunning results. This isn't like the tired Hollywood cgi movies. In fact there is only 1 cgi scene here. The acting is superb from the 2 cast children that are perfect for their roles. The bullying scenes are the only slightly difficult parts to watch but fortunately most of the movie centres around the 2 lead roles which are wonderfully shot creating the perfect coming of age visuals and sound set in the perfect atmosphere.
Don't expect horror here for the sake of it. Some of the horror scenes take place without you seeing it for you to make your own mind up. Without spoiling, this was particularly disappointing in one scene where you really needed to see something but didn't. You'll realise what I mean when you watch this.
Do watch the Making Of in the special features straight after watching the movie. It is helpfully revealing and you learn about the genius of the Director.
Highly recommended for coming of age movie goers and for those that want a feel good movie with lots of struggles throughout.
Very satisfying ending.

One of the best romance-ish movies I have ever saw
Verified purchase
I really do not like any movies with any type of romance in them. (I am a male teen) But I do have to say this is the best romance-ish film I've ever seen. To be honest I came here for the gore and violence (It needed a bit more of that) but I was taken back by the story and how it progressed, but even though it was a great movie I would have liked to seen SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER the bully's death seen better showing us the everything in close up detail, but still an amazing movie non the less easy top 20
