I’ve been cautiously optimistic about the American remake of the unspeakably awesome Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In (which I have somehow managed to not review yet on this site – I’ll get right on that!). On the plus side, it’s got a great cast (Chloe Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Cara Buono), a solid director (Matt Reeves – sorry, haters, but Cloverfield was pretty amazing) and a commitment from the filmmakers not to fuck up the original concept too badly as they dumb it down for our stoopid Amurikin braenz.
On the downside, it’s a remake.
Well, the trailer for the remake is up, and I’m very happy to say that it looks to preserve many of the scarring images of the original film without tampering too much with its focus and tone.
Check it out after the jump and let us know what you think!
