Let Me In synopsis:

Twelve-year old Owen is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby, an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father. A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond. When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself. Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.

Let Me In stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloë Grace Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, Cara Buono and Sasha Barrese and is directed by Matt Reeves.

Critics have given Let Me In very good ratings.

“Reeves understands what made the first film so eerie and effective, and here the same things work again.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“This is a really good movie, good enough that whether it needed to be made is beside the point. If you’ve seen the original, you’ll be happy with the results. If you haven’t, then just sit back and enjoy.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

“This unsettling, effective American remake really gets under the skin as one of the year’s most powerful thrillers.” -Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter

“Rest assured, much of what made the first film so special remains intact.” – Christy Lemire, Associated Press
