Let The Right One In (Låt den rätte komma in)

Let The Right One In
A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boys wish for a friend seems to comes true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him. But Elis arrival coincides with a series of gruesome deaths and attacks. Though Oskar realizes that she's a vampire, his friendship with her is stronger than his fear Let The Right One In

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_the_Right_One_In_(film)]According to reports[/url], Cloverfield director Matt Reeves is doing an English Language movie based on the book that Let The Right One In was based on. Cloverfield was a well done smartly made movie, despite the fact that JJ "The Hack" Abrams produced the film.

Hammer Horror bought the rights to remake the original Swedish movie. Hammer Horror produced Beyond the Rave which starred The Lovely Lovely Jamie Dornan. Beyond the Rave was also a vampire movie. Apparently, Hammer Horror has quite the storied legacy in the Horror Genre.

Eli - Boy or Girl?

According to at least one description of the book, it is not at all clear in the book if Eli is a boy or a girl. Given the nature of marketing in America, I think we can expect Hack Abrams and his PR Flacks to try to lock in a gay audience by alleging that Eli is a boy. I can already see Andy Towle's Gay Bashings Du Jour Blog Going into "Brokeback Mountain Mode" for Matt Reeves' remake.

I think 12 years old is a little bit too young for the kids to be in an American Remake of this movie. At a min, I think the kids would have to be 16 years old. It is hard to imagine an American audience accepting that 12 year olds should die because they bullied another kid in school. Making the kids older would put the American remake of the film into competition with Twilight
