No, it's ultimately not as great as Let The Right One In, certainly not original, but overall I found Let Me In to be a worthy remake that justifies its own existence. I take a look at the differences I found between the two movies, what I thought Let Me In did well, and why Matt Reeves' musical choices, especially David Bowie, ultimately work.

Not having seen the original, I had gone into this with high hopes. It was so much different than the trailers led you to believe, but overall, very much more satisfying than a simple vampire movie.

I felt so bad for Owen, and the abuse he suffered at school, and thought Abby's support for him was really touching.

Such a great movie, I'd recommend it.

I also loved the 80s clothes that were true to the era, and not everybody in hotpants, parachute pants and with big hair. It really looked like life did in 83 when I was 13.

I just saw this the other night, and I'm still haunted by it. Just an amazing movie. I haven't seen Let The Right One In yet, but it's qeued up on my Instant Netflix for viewing tonight. Everything I've read has said that the remake is inferior, so my expectations are sky high.

Chloe Moretz is incredible in this. Great casting all around. I knew from the first shot (very reminiscent of The Shining, to me) that I would love the actual asthetic of the movie. Beautifully suspenseful from start to finish. And the music from Michael Giacchino was a perfect fit. This film could have been scored in so many other more stereotypical ways, but instead the music played a huge part in giving it an identity of its own. This film put any other movie I've seen this year to shame, and it's actually now one of my favorites of all time. I'll be seeing it again this week for sure.

I knew the hot next door neighbor of Owen and Abby from somewhere but I couldn't place the actress. IMDB tells me it's Sasha Barrese. She was Doug's fiance/wife in The Hangover.

"And if she gets eaten by vampire tweeners, then she's shit outta luck!"
