Let Me In, Hammer Films' interpretation of the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma (Let The Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and the highly-acclaimed film of the same name, will arrive at UK screens November 2010. The original film was a huge hit and hopefully Hammer can capture the main themes of loneliness and adolescent heartache in the same subtle way.
Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Abby, a secretive 12-year old girl, who moves next door to Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Owen is a social outcast who is viciously bullied at school and in his loneliness, forms a profound bond with his new neighbour. Owen can’t help noticing that Abby is like no one he has ever met before. As a string of grisly murders occupy the town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is really a savage vampire.
Let Me In, is billed as a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and produced by British horror brand Hammer Films.
