Re: "Let Me In" - Discussion & Grading

Haven't seen this yet but probably will.

The Swedish movie is essential viewing, but don't forget the real source material, the novel. The first movie is quite faithful, but inevitably a lot gets left out when a novel is turned into a movie. It's well worth reading.

One point that I understand the American version changes... I gather it makes the main character more of a normal kid. That would mesh with the idea that he's an innocent being manipulated by the vampire, but the thing is, he's a disturbed and creepy kid in the original before she comes along. No manipulation necessary.
