Matt Reeves accepted a difficult assignment when he agreed to helm an American remake of the terrific Swedish vampire film, Let the Right One In.  But guess what?  His gamble paid off.  While Let Me In and Let the Right One In tell the same story, both are very different movies in terms of tone.  The Swedish version is an austere drama while the American cut is an emotionally charged horror film.  This is one of the rare Hollywood remakes that works on its own terms, which is a not inconsiderable achievement considering the industry’s uneven track record with adapting foreign language films.  Read my feature interview with Reeves at Film Journal.
