Don’t get too excited, it’ s just a touch more violent and scary than the green band trailer which has been circulating the last day or so. In fact, I swear I’ve seen green banders scarier and more violent than this.
In any case, assuming “Let Me In” doesn’t stray too far from the excellent prior film version of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel, “Let the Right One In,” and it looks pretty similar, this will not be a mega-gorefest, at least save for a few very crucial moments. Take a look.
The general consensus on this is that it doesn’t look bad. It doesn’t, but will it justify its existence beyond being the movie that people who refuse to read subtitles will watch? Working with a script by the very talented TV veteran Drew Goddard on “Cloverfield,” director Matt Reeves left me partially cold. How much better — or worse — will he do with his script? Only one way to find out.
