      Forget Twilight. Underworld. Dracula. Blade. Forget Interview with a Vampire. This is one of the best vampire movies you will ever see.

      [Warning]: This is a Swedish film so if you have no patience for subtitles then watch Twilight.

      What sets it apart form other vampire movies?

      Let The Right One In is fresh and original. It is told from the point of view of a introverted young boy


      who befriends a vampire. It is a film ultimately about the need for companionship: About finding a kindred spirit / tortured soul to accompany you through life / death.

      Small details make it stand out and seem more convincing. We hear the hunger of our vampire - there is almost a growl in her stomach. Her smell is noticeably very animal and strange before she feeds, and more human again immediately after. Her breathing becomes laboured every time she smells blood but no fangs appear on queue - more the engorged pupils, panting and other very animalistic signs.

      Some elements of vampire lore are ignored, or expounded.

      1. Do vampires sleep in Coffins? No. In a bathroom. With blacked-out windows. In the Bath. Underneath layers of papers and blankets.

      2. Can Vampires really not ...

      enter a home without being invited? Yes. The body will bleed from every pore and tear itself apart. Nice.

      3. Do Vampires feel cold, or heat? No. They are impervious to both.

      4. [Frivolity warning]: Do vampires like candy? Decidedly not. It makes them sick.

      5. Do vampires like cats? Unlikely. Cats most definitely do not like vampires, and attack them like wild er cats.

      The pace

      of this film is gentle, almost slow - but it manages to remain utterly absorbing. The direction is beautiful, very artful in places and raw in others. The acting is pretty faultless - save for a slightly wooden performance by a teacher and the school bully - and the two young leads are very compelling.

      Any self-respecting horror fan MUST see this film. Any film fan should. I loved it.
