The first wave of Fantastic Fest films hit like a lightning strike out of some angry God’s nether regions to bless and curse the land with its might. Now, the US premiere of Matt Reeves’s Let Me In will be opening the entire affair.
As a remake of a beloved property, it’s been derided and ogled like a broken-legged river otter at the zoo, but Comic-Con changed some hearts and minds around with the footage that was shown and with the exemplary talk that Matt Reeves gave about his inspirations.
It’s exciting news and a perfect film to launch the most energetic film festival on the planet. Plus, in true Fantastic fashion, Mondo Tees will be creating a special Olly Moss poster for Let Me In. Strap your film-loving shoes on, and head down to Austin immediately. Or strap them on mid-September and then head down if you don’t want to camp out for a full month.
