Let Me In

The new Hammer film, Let Me In, is BRILLIANT. As you may already know, it is an English-language adaptation of the Swedish film Let The Right One In which in turn was an adaptation of the book Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

All three versions are (really, truly) fantastic, but Let Me In is the only one currently showing in cinemas. You should all go and see it. I really mean that. You won’t regret it. And don’t be fooled by the trailers into thinking that it’s a fairly mediocre action shocker or anything – it’s really much much better than the standard, TV trailers make out.

If you’re thinking ‘Tom doesn’t normally recommend films or anything on this blog’ then, well, you’d be right. But Let Me In is a great example of why horror matters, and obviously that’s something I’m very interested in.

Given that you’re already reading this, then you’re probably fairly open-minded about all of this kind of stuff anyway, and I’m probably preaching to the converted, but – well – I’m going to stop myself talking myself out of writing this blog post now.

Go. Go now.
