When people say to me, “Clark, you really hate vampire movies, don’t you?” I reply, “Au contraire!” — at least on those days when I’m pretending to be French. The truth is that, while I do hate the Twilight movies, I’m generally a big fan of the genre.
One of my favorite films of the past few years was the brilliant, atmospheric, Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In. The movie has now been remade in English — and renamed Let Me In, by Cloverfield director Matt Reeves — and the first trailer just hit the Internet. I’m not entirely at home to Let The Right One In being remade at all, but the clip is actually somewhat encouraging. It also features more blood than all of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which I’m going to go ahead and call, “a good thing.”
What do you think of the trailer, which you can see after the jump? And of the idea of them remaking Let The Right One In?
