Let the Right One In
The week the teen drama Twilight was released, I listened to a podcast (thanks Cort and Fatboy) in which Mike Russell recommended "the other vampire movie". When he started talking about a Swedish vampire movie, I was reminded of when he recommended a Korean monster movie. I snickered, I scoffed, but I followed his direction. I was not disappointed when I saw The Host, and I'm not disappointed after seeing Let the Right One In. Well structured, creepy, eerie and touching, this is one of the better films I've seen this year. Thanks Mike, Cort and Fatboy!
