Starring: Chloe Moretz, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Richard Jenkins
Story: An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer to his small New Mexico town, and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood. (Overture Films)
Bottom Line: The biggest difference between this vampire movie and any film from the TWILIGHT series is that LET ME IN isn’t completely awful. It’s a thinking person’s drama/horror hybrid with excellent direction, solid acting and, despite some of the grisly mayhem, a touching story of friendship.
