October Challenge Film #24

Let Me In (2010, Matt Reeves) - 116 min.

Let Me In is to Let the Right One In as Quarantine is to [REC] - an okay, practically shot-for-shot remake made simply because the original is not in English and the American populace is too stupid to read subtitles.  I saw Let Me In thinking that the director was going to take it in a different direction, but alas, almost every line was the same and so was every shot.  It was well directed and the young actors Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz were absolutely fantastic, Let Me In didn't really bring anything new to the table.  They showed more of Abby's vampiric powers, but more didn't make it better, it just meant that they used more CG.  This one's not worth paying for if you've seen the original.
