Let The Right One In

A couple weeks ago, I went to see a Swedish vampire movie called "Let The Right One In". I didn't know what it was about, other than Swedish vampires, natch. Its a strange story of a lonely Swedish boy in the 1970s who develops a crush on his next-door neighbor, who happens to be a vampire. Its such a bizarre movie- I've been thinking about it constantly trying to work out whether or not I liked it. I may need more time to decide, but I would not hesitate to urge anyone to go see it. Even if I'm not sure I liked it, there so much originality and engrossing drama it completely worth seeing. It is definitely the finest piece of horror/suspense/coming of age/vampire/puppy love/psychodrama to ever come out of Sweden. Go see it!
