Let Me In

She will keep you forever


Let Me In
Official Trailer

The sensitive target of vicious bullying at school, 12-year-old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a social misfit from a broken home. By day Owen dreams about laying waste to his classroom tormentors. One evening, as Owen takes out his pent-up aggressions on a tree, his new neighbor Abby (Chloë Moretz) appears over his shoulder. A young girl wise beyond her years, Abby just moved in next door to Owen with her stoic caretaker (Richard Jenkins) who seems to harbor a sinister secret.

Owen senses a kindred soul, and strikes up a friendship with the girl, despite her repeated attempts to maintain an emotional distance. Simultaneously, their community grows vigilant following a series of vicious murders, and Abby's caretaker vanishes without a trace. As Abby begins to grow vulnerable, her bond with Owen strengthens. By the time Owen begins to suspect that his evasive new friend is something other than human, it starts to seem as if Abby could use a good friend after all. Given that his bullies are growing more emboldened by the day, so too could Owen.

Being forced to spend eternity as a vampire--trapped in the mind and body of a child, with slaughter the only recourse for survival--is torture enough. But when Abby finds herself faced with a ruthless real--estate tycoon willing to do anything to get at the property she and her caretaker call home, far more monstrous torments await. In a small community torn apart by vicious men who are consumed by greed, wrath, and envy, she will learn which deadly sin is truly deadliest.

  • Let Me In is Hauntingly Beautiful, a film that truly sticks with you long after you watch it.

  • Regarding #1 in the Trivia Page, "Not everything appears as it seems": As far as I know, the remake rights for LMI were acquired at the Tribeca Festival April 2008, about four months after LTROI was screened at the Gothenburg International Film Festival, and not before, as your article says. You might be referring to the wide release of LTROI in October, nearly a year after its Film Festival release.

  • Good film but the Swedish one is better

  • This is a 100% accurate statement. "Contrary to popular belief, Hammer had already secured rights to film John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel before the Swedish film was released."
