Owen, an alienated 12-year-old boy, recognizes a fellow outcast and opens up to her, forming a unique bond. But as a string of grisly murders occupy his town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl might be hiding an unthinkable secret.

This remake of "Let the Right One In" takes place in an out of the way part of Los Alamos, New Mexico. The desert landscape adds some surprisingly spooky ambiance.

Not your typical vampire movie, which was nice for a change. I thought he children's acting was superb. Has a lot of pretty gory scenes & Owen's bullies are truly cruel, but overall I liked it.

This is a movie that didn't need to be made. Stick with the original, "Let the Right One In" out of Sweden. This remake is bigger budget, more stylized, has bigger stars, and just falls flat in comparison.

This is a re-make but for once, a re-make that is as well made as the original; actually I prefer this version because of the amazing performances of Chloe and Kodi, especially Chloe. While the actress in the original was very good she doesn't have the special something that makes Ms. Moretz the most highly sought after young actress in Hollywood right now.(she has four movies coming out in 2016) Let Me In is well worth your time.

Very different than your typical horror movie. Much more romantic, with minimal focus on the actual horror. That being said I did really enjoy this.

I just wish people would stop taking library materials. I really wanted to see "Let the Right One In", the Swedish original movie. Let Me In is a remake. It's okay . . . enjoyed it . . . but PEOPLE!!! Stop taking library materials. So many things I've wanted to see have gone "Missing". I actually bought the dvd "Let Me In" and do enjoy it. Some good gore.

Yeah. OK. I'm quite aware that Let Me In was supposed to be a heart-felt story about a touching relationship that transpired between a regular, 12 year-old boy and a vampire girl (of about the same age), but when I seriously considered Abby (the vampire) and her ferociously vicious appetite for you-know-what, any cuteness that was intended here as a means to gloss over that horrific fact of her thirst, went sailing straight out the door, as far as I'm concerned._____ There can be no denying that the quiet eeriness of this film's musical score clearly played a major part in setting the creepy mood of the story. The music's hypnotic quality was obviously there to manipulate my emotional state, thus giving Let Me In a very haunting ambience that it didn't rightfully deserve._____ From my perspective, this was a pathetically ugly and emotionally sterile story about the horrid cruelness of bullying and to what great lengths an odd, lonely boy will go to in order to have at least one friend._____ In this film we really learn very little about the vampire girl, Abby, except that she's been 12 years old for a mighty long time.

I enjoyed this version and the only reason I watched it was because the girl who was in this movie was also in Kick Ass. There was a certain sadness all through-out the film. The characters were real enough as were the situations of poverty and school bullies. The movie does not try to resolve 'the future' in anyway so while the ending may seem rather sweet, when you think of the days to come in the lives of these people, what can they have to look forward to?
