There is no shortage of Vampire cinema out there.  Some of the obvious great choices include Tod Browning's "Dracula," F.W. Murnau's "Nosferatu," "The Lost Boys" or "Interview with the Vampire."  The problem is, there arguably aren't many more good ones besides those few.  Television shows such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" absolutely destroyed the Vampire as we know it, making these creatures of the night, bland and stale.  On the flip side of things, a show like "True Blood" comes along and singlehandedly revitalizes the sub-genre.  Then finally a fresh new look at our fanged foes hits the big screen based on a best selling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, entitled "Let the Right One In."

Adapted for film by Lindqvist himself, Tomas Alfredson's "
Let the Right One In" follows Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant), a reclusive young boy who is mercilessly bullied at school.  One night he meets Eli (Lina Leandersson), a strange yet interesting young girl who recently moved into the apartment next door.  Eli is very pale, only appears at nightfall and is usually underdressed for the wintery weather.  The two quickly form a strong bond and gradually Oskar becomes aware of how different Eli really is.  Not letting this get in the way of their remarkable friendship the two look out for one another in their own ways.  As the film unfolds, unexplained disappearances and murders become prevalent.  With a struggle between friendship and survival looming, Eli must eventually relocate as she has always done, in order to stay "alive."

"Let the Right One In" is definitely not your typical Vampire movie, which is absolutely refreshing!  The film really isn't a horror film either.  In fact, it's more of a dark drama which focuses on the relationship between two misunderstood kids who find each other.  Eli may be a vampire, but under the circumstances of being a vampire child, and Oskar being an ostracized kid, they have more in common than one might think.  This situation cultivates their budding strong bond between one another, making "Let the Right One In" the best Vampire story to come out in many years.

Even though I classify "
Let the Right One In" as more of a dark drama than a horror film, there are still some great horrific sequences and bloodshed which lend to the story.  One blood donor (victim) is hung from a tree and bled like a pig.  Another donor is torn apart in a school swimming pool.  We get to see what really happens when you don't invite a Vampire into your home.   The best scene in the film shows what happens when a Vampire is exposed to direct sunlight.  All these sequences mentioned are mere icing on the cake, from a film with a new approach to Vampire lore at the hands of a little Vampire girl.

Magnolia Home Entertainment and Magnet Pictures bring the inimitable "
Let the Right One In" to DVD in a 2.35:1 widescreen presentation.  The picture looks stunning with no imperfections to be seen.  We get the original Swedish audio presentation in both 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0 as well as a dubbed version which I didn't listen to, but should pose a great option for lazy or illiterate viewers.  For the supplements we get 4 'Deleted Scenes', just under 8-minutes of 'Behind the Scenes' footage, a 'Photo Gallery', and a 'Theatrical Poster Gallery'.  Trailers for "Eden Log," "Special," "Splinter," "Let the Right One In," "Timecrimes," "Donkey Punch," "Big Man Japan " and an HDNet promo are also included.
