Let the Right One In
2008
Directed by Tomas Alfredson

Of this film, IMDB says the following, “Oscar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl who turns out to be a vampire.”

Sounds simple, but it is so much more, and I cannot think of a more appropriate film to finish up the Halloween Season on. This is a horror film done right, with appropriate creepiness, sympathy, and cleverness.

In the world post-Twilight it is so refreshing to come across a truly innovative and intelligent vampire film. I hear that Hollywood plans to make an American version, but that simply isn’t necessary, as I don’t think they could improve on what is here simply by putting American actors in the roles.

I give it five spooky pumpkins out of five.

And with that last gasp, I close out the Halloween Horror Countdown for 2009. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I always do. We now return you to your regularly scheduled website.
