Now see this!

Trust that if the phrase "Starkly beautiful and poignant vampire movie" strikes any chord at all with you, or even if it doesn't, you must go see "Let the Right One In". An emotionally accurate coming-of-age tale, set in the white-on-white beauty of Sweden. Also, some of the most intense aural gore I've experienced outside of having my ear to the bathroom door of a Taco Bell.

Woah, looks interesting...on a different scale of Night Watch, but certainly worth a look.

I had NO IDEA that's what this film was all about. Thanks for the tip!

I love this! The trailer's all heartwarming with the little-kid hugs, then hits you (like a tiny vampire jumping on a victim) with the body dumping and "are you a vampire."

Made of awesome.

Never seen Night Watch--- I think, there is a Ewan McGregor movie with a similar name about an overnight guard at a morgue (highly recommended!).

Sal-- that's what I do! ;D

Annie-- dude. Perfect description!

I don't know if it's because I'm swedish but I thought this was so silly and badly directed. It has great photography though! and the kids are adorable!
