Beautiful. Dark. Disturbing.
A bullied 12 year old, Owen (Smit-McPhee), finds a friend in the odd girl who moved across the hall in his apartment, Abby (Grace Moretz). Around the same time, a string of grisly murders have shocked their small town in New Mexico, baffling the police, and putting families on edge. Soon, Owen finds that Abby is a vampire, and his growing love for her is tested. As a close remake of the Swedish Let the Right One In, many devotees of the original might not be able to see this film for what it’s worth. This is a gorgeously filmed, beautifully acted horror film that lingers in your thoughts for long after its finish.
