Let Me In (2010, R)
Chloë Grace Moretz, Kodi Smit-McPhee This chilling redo of the 2008 tween-vampire thriller Let the Right One In is the rare remake that’s better than the original. (Available on Netflix instant viewing) B+

Life During Wartime (2010, Not Rated)
Allison Janney, Ciarán Hinds Auteur (and professional killjoy) Todd Solondz recasts the same miserable family from his 1998 drama Happiness for a new study of suburban dysfunction. And yes, that’s Paul ”Pee-wee” Reubens as a ghostly visitor. B+
