New, Bloody Let Me In Still
Get an exclusive look at Chloe Moretz

09 September 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

As you know, we don't hate remakes on principle around here. And we are especially willing to give them a chance when they're a fresh take on the same material and/or have a good team behind them. So we're quietly hopeful for Let Me In, the Matt Reeves-directed spin on the Swedish vampire hit Let The Right One In - and here's a creepy, blood-soaked new picture to whet your appetite too.

The film stars The Road's Kodi Smit-McPhee as picked-on schoolboy Owen, who befriends Abby (Kick-Ass's Chloe Moretz) when she moves into his building. But she's not quite normal - as you can probably see here.

With adult support from Richard Jenkins and Elias Koteas, and judging by the footage we saw at Movie-Con III, this is shaping up pretty well. You can judge for yourself when it opens on October 29 here in the UK, or when it screens at the London Film Festival on October 14.

RE:
L: clarkkent course, what people forget is THIS ISN'T A REMAKE!!!!! Its not, as you morons all to seem to think, isn't a remake, its an adaptation of a book that just so happens to have already been done in the book's original language. Buy yourselves a clue and pick up a book some time you backwards, illiterate internet hate monkeys. he irony in your post is the remake is for illiterate americans who can't be bothered to read subtitles.

RE: re clark kent
It was a buit harsh!! but if it isnt a remake, and an adaptation of the book, then surely we would end up with mmore ore less the same movie?? Is it just coincidence that then that Mat reeves has made same scenes??? For instance the the scene where the old guy is killed under the bridge??? Its a carbon copy of the swedish MOVIE More
