Låt den Rätte Komma In
Let the Right One In
(Sweden, 2008, 112 minutes)
In 1982 Stockholm, a lonely, bullied schoolboy finds comfort and friendship in his new teenage neighbour — a lonely girl who only comes out at night and turns out to be a vampire. Haunting coming-of-age fable for adults that combines a remarkably well-observed portrait of adolescence with an icily stylish, subdued approach to horror movie conventions.
