“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.

“The rare modern horror film that manages to be genuinely original, this macabre vampire romance is true magic.” – Wendy Ide, Times (UK)

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 teen tormentors. 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, look at adolescence, gender identity and the pangs of first love.  Gorgeously shot and unforgettably terrifying (with a swimming pool scene that ranks among horror cinema’s greatest set-pieces), Let the Right One In (an adaptation of Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s bestseller, and the inspiration for a 2010 Hollywood remake from Cloverfield director Matt Reeves) is guaranteed to both chill your blood and warm your heart, and how often does THAT happen in a movie?  (Dir. by Tomas Alfredson, 2008, Sweden, in Swedish with English subtitles, 114 mins., Not Rated)
