'LET THE RIGHT ONE IN'

WRITTEN BY
Rob Harvilla

The icy 2008 Swedish horror flick ideal if you'd feared Twilight overload would ruin vampires for you forever. Plot: Meek, lonely young boy slowly befriends meek-seeming, lonely young girl who is, y'know, a little weird. You'll recognize the combo of bruising, wide-eyed childlike naïveté and unnerving, subdued, pulsating horror, put it that way. The pool scene (spoilers, but worth it) makes decapitation and dismemberment look beautiful and alluring the same way Avey Tare makes blood-curdling screams feel like the delighted coos of a precocious newborn.
