MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Let The Right One In


This is one of the best "horror" films I've ever seen. It really captured the creepy factor, through good use of cinematography, child actors (what's creepier than sadistic kids?) and music. Unlike the typical slasher films that Hollywood churns out every year, this one paid much closer attention to the small details. It was refreshing not to see 30 people people being hacked to bits in ridiculous ways. Rather, there were a few killings that were effective in that it was really what you didn't see that was most horrifying. Also, one of the most brilliant endings ever. I'm excited for the American remake, as I love the casting of Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz in the lead roles.
