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. Read more »
