Check This Out: Let Me In / Let the Right One In Comparisons
The very first trailer for Matt Reeves' Let Me In arrived earlier this week to quite a positive response, which was surprising considering most were ready to dislike it. If you didn't know, Let Me In is a remake of Tomas Alfredson's Let the Right One In (or technically a re-adaptation of John Lindqvist's novel that was based on) - a fantastic Swedish film that anyone who has seen has fallen in love with. Our friends at UGO put together a comparison piece with examples from both movies showing the same scenes. It's pretty cool to see and I've chosen a few of my favorites, but they have a lot more on their site (and so does io9). See the photos below!

Let Me In is both written and directed by American filmmaker Matt Reeves, who's feature directorial debut was J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield but prior to that he directed episodes of "Felicity" and various other TV shows. This is a remake of Tomas Alfredson's 2008 film Let the Right One In, or more specifically a re-adaptation of the Swedish novel Låt den rätte komma in written by John Ajvide Lindqvist. Overture Films is bringing Let Me In to theaters everywhere starting October 1st this fall. Does it look as good as you were hoping?
