Let Me In (R)


This is an uninspired American remake of Tomas Alfredson’s original Swedish horror film, Let the Right One In (2008). It’s as if writer/director Matt Reeves made a shot-for-shot copy, but with lesser actors and less attention to Alfredson’s more surrealistic elements. Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) plays 12-year-old misfit Owen, who find a friend when the similarly aged Abby (Chloe Moretz) moves next door. Stick to the original.
