Let The Right One In

About a week ago I watched the Norwegian vampire film Let The Right One In (here's the trailer), which was just released to DVD.

This is the teen vampire movie that should have been. It's a thought provoking, coming of age story about a 12 year old boy, Oskar, who's being bullied at school. All that begins to change when he meets his new neighbor, a vampire in the form of a 12 year old girl. His growing feelings for her are in sharp contrast to her monstrous hunger. A must see for any vampire fan.

(Incidentally, if you're a purist, there's a dispute over the English subtitles on this film. You may want to wait until a copy is available that contains the English Theatrical Subtitles.)
