LET ME IN
The Let Me In Facebook ad caught my eye because it reminded me of a pretty decent foreign horror film from Norway I’d seen not too long ago called Let the Right One In.
I don’t know where I heard it (I’m thinking perhaps Autumnforest), but I recalled someone saying they’d seen talk of it being remade into an English version.
So I clicked the ad out of curiosity and Bingo! Yep, it’s an English remake of Let the Right One In.
From what I can tell by the trailer, they seemed to have tried to preserve what the original offered, which was atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere. (I’m just impressed that they found two more kids to deliver what looks to be the same kind of on-target performance the kids in Let the Right One In served up.)
If you don’t dig subtitles but want to see a pretty decent vampire flick, you might want to keep an eye out for Let Me In. It’ll hit theaters October 1.
As I was trying to figure out what nationality Let the Right One In was, I went to IMDB. That’s when I saw the trailer ad for Monsters, which immediately caught my eye. It was a woman wearing a gas mask and the tagline read:
Can a journalist and tourist survive the “infected zone” where aliens now reside?
Okay, that’s a trailer just begging me to watch it. So I did.
Apparently Monsters is the newest monster movie from the same director who made Cloverfield. It looks like he’s chosen to tell it from a different perspective this time. (Third person rather than first.) Which was fine. I liked Cloverfield well enough, but this one sort of has a District 9 meets The Host feel. Which might make for a good combo.
We’ll see. It’ll hit theaters October 29.
Like Let Me In you can also find and follow Monsters on Facebook. Oh, and very important, you’ll find the trailer below.
Looks like the Halloween horror movie season is just about upon us! Let ’em rip! (Or is that R.I.P.? Guess it depends if they turn out to be good or stinkers, eh?)
