Let Me In
It must be a rush to remind us Halloween is merely four months away, but Hammer Films (yes the same Hammer that made classic British horror/fantasy/ soft-sex films) have released a trailer for LET ME IN, which is the remake of Tomas Alfredson's 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In. It's the second horror film to be trailed this week (see post on PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 to read up on the first) and looks pretty decent. It's directed by Matt Reeves who made Cloverfield and seems similar in tone and style to its Swedish predecessor, albeit kind of of darker. I love the fact it's an American horror film told from the POV of kids- not teenagers- but kids. Alfredson's film sparked a bidding war and many UK production companies were also looking to score remake rights. Alas, Overture Films in the US partnered with Hammer and the rest is history. No UK release has been announced but the film will come out in America 1st October 2010.
