The One Movie You Should See This Week (9/30/10)

by Scott Von Doviak & Andrew Osborne

SCOTT: I caught the premiere of this latest American remake of a foreign horror movie last week at Fantastic Fest in Austin, so I’m in a good position to tell you what you probably suspected already: if you’re not allergic to subtitles and you’ve already seen the 2008 Swedish version of Let the Right One In, you don’t need to bother with this one. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with writer-director Matt Reeves‘ take on the material, exactly; it’s just that there’s nothing substantially different about it. Reeves gets good performances from his young leads, Kodi Smit-McPhee (as the lonely boy who befriends a vampire) and Chloe Moretz (continuing her Kick-Ass killing spree), and he effectively recreates the low-key melancholy tone of the original. But it’s still just a really crisp Xerox copy.
