Movie-savvy audiences might be in for a surprise soon. I’ve spoken with several trusted sources who have seen the film, and who can articulate their opinions without grunting, and they’ve unanimously praised Let Me In. While the original is aching and beautiful and heart-warmingly cold, the American remake might do what horror remakes struggle to do: be worth it.
The positive praise comes with something else today. A new, glorious poster is online and ready to be loved.
Just try not to step in the blood:
Of course, that’s Chloe Moretz in what I can only assume is her character’s version of an all-you-can-eat buffet. Why is she laying in a pile of her own food? It’s unclear.
It’s interesting that they chose to place the name of Cloverfield so prominently. It’s success could help propel this, but from the inside of the news world, it feels like the original film will be doing most of the heavy lifting in that department – which is why it’s fair play to Hammer for including mention of Lindqvist’s screenplay as well as the novel.
