LET THE RIGHT ONE IN
LÅT DEN RÄTTE KOMMA IN
2008, Magnet Releasing, 114 min, Sweden, Dir: Tomas Alfredson

“I'm twelve. But I've been twelve for a long time.” It seems that lonely, bullied boy Oskar has finally found a soulmate when Eli moves in next door. She’s a strange young girl, who only comes out at night … and whose arrival coincides with a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. It doesn't take Oskar long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire, but he cannot bring himself to forsake her; in return, Eli gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Set in early-1980s Sweden, this modern horror classic weaves friendship, rejection and loyalty into a disturbing and darkly atmospheric, yet poetic and unexpectedly tender tableau of adolescence. You’ll never forget the climatic swimming pool scene!
