Let the Right One In is one of the best vampire movies I've seen in a long time. It just didn't get much press because it's Swedish and came out around the same time Twilight did.

Finally caught it in Albuquerque; was nice not to have the hissing/leaping vampire BS ala Blade/Underworld/Twilight/Lost Boys etc etc etc.

A vampire movie aimed at adults starring two kids. Pretty damn good.

I laughed. I cried. It was better than "Cats." I'd go see it again and again.

It is an excellent vampire movie; and it's not much of a horror movie.

Okay, here's a poser for you guys SPOILERS FOLLOW:

Did Eli really love Oskar, or was he ultimately a means to protection and food like her father figure was before he made mistakes? Or, is it a combination of both, and this is a cycle she goes through? Will Oskar ultimately meet a similar fate?

Do you feel happy at the end of the film that they are together, or do you feel sorry for Oskar because his temporary happiness will be replaced with truth that he will eventually have to kill for her? Repeatedly.

Clearly, Eli is a sympathetic character, but should we forget the fact that she kills people (or uses others to kill for her)?

So, I picked it up on DVD, and the fricking subtitles are all kinds of messed up. Sure, they're more or less an accurate translation, but nuances are gone. Icons of Fright (http://iconsoffright.com/news/2009/03/let_the_wrong_subtitles_in_to.html ) has compiled a list of just some of the changes. Some are not horrible, but others are akin to me calling you a "moronic, illiterate fucktard" and translating it to "I don't like you."

The studio, Magnet, responded that because "a few" fans are upset, they'll be remanufacturing the DVD with the theatrical subtitles. However, there will not be an exchange program. Jagoffs.

I'm glad I have a rip of the screener with the theatrical subtitles.
