New ‘Let Me In’ Movie Delivered Unique,Suspenseful,Vampire Drama
New ‘Let Me In’ movie delivered unique,suspenseful,vampire drama. Overture Films released their new drama/horror flick “Let Me In” into theaters this weekend. I checked it out yesterday,and I thought that the movie delivered a very unique story about a vampire girl. It was more like a drama than a horror flick,and that aspect really made it interesting and different. The movie stars: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, Cara Buono,and Sasha Barrese.
“Let Me In” revolved around character Owen (Kodi Smith-McPhee) who is an awkward 12 year old boy that doesn’t have many friends,and gets picked on a lot at school. He eventually meets a strange 12 year old girl named Abby (Chloe Moretz) who has just moved into his apartment complex,next door to him.
Contrary to her initial wishes, they eventually develop a unique friendship. Unfortunately,Abby is not who she appears to be as she’s really a vampire that needs blood to live. She lives with a man who appears to be her father,but is really her blood hunter. Once he’s fazed out of the picture,Abby has to hunt her own blood.
The movie featured some very suspenseful,thrilling scenes that included Abby acting very innocent as bait. Then attacking her prey very fast. She revealed her true vampire self to Owen,and violently attacked a guy in the bathroom right in front of Owen. Despite all this,their friendship somehow remains intact. It concluded with a very wild conclusion,causing Owen to be attached to her forever,or at least,a very long time.
I liked this movie. It was very different from any other vampire movie I’ve ever seen. I was very interested the entire time as I was wondering how it would all turn out. It didn’t have a ton of thriller scenes,but the ones it did have,were pretty damn good. I give this movie an A grade for originality,alone. “Let Me In” movie is in theaters now.
