Worth Watching - Sept 28: Let the Right One In Trailer

We've been talking about Let the Right One In a lot recently and now we have a trailer to share with all of you! It's a Swedish trailer that was used to promote the film during film festivals, but it's still our very first introduction to the film in addition to my glowing review. Let the Right One In is so much more than what's seen in this shorter trailer. Even if you're not exactly sold right away, I strongly urge everyone to give this film a chance. It is hands down one of my favorite films of this entire year. It's being remade, but the original with still remain one of the best horror films of the last decade. It's about a bullied kid who befriends a young girl who turns out to be a vampire, but it's more of a love story than a horror flick.
Peter from SlashFilm says that it's "beautiful and haunting, Let The Right One In is a film you must see." Scott Weinberg of Cinematical calls it "one of the strangest, stickiest, and (yes) sweetest horror movies I've seen in ten years." And of course, I said in my review that "it's a remarkably mesmerizing tale of love, vampires, and bullies." Please make sure you seek out this extraordinary indie gem in theaters!
Watch the Swedish trailer for Let the Right One In:

This film first premiered in the US at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up by Magnet Releasing as part of the "Six Shooter" series. Let the Right One In will arrive in very limited theaters (only in New York and Los Angeles as far as I know) starting on October 24th. Please go see this wonderful movie!
