"Let The Right One In" - A Pretty Cool Vampire Flick

This movie isn't all that scary, but it certainly has its fair share of gloom and doom. From the first scene when we see a man's throat slit as he hangs upside down from a tree while a dog watches until the carnage at the swimming pool at the end, the movie has a foreboding sense of dread to it. The director made a lot of smart choices in this very well done story about a 12-year-old (not really) vampire (Eli) and the socially inept younger boy (Oskar) she falls for.

You can't help but wonder what awaits Oskar once Eli tires of him and/or he gets old, but it looks like they've got a good thing until that day comes.
