Cinema Dissection: Let The Right One In
February 24, 2024
When Let The Right One In hit the film festival circuit in 2008, it arrived at a moment when zombies were ascendent and vampires passé, relegated to the sparkly reaches of YA pop-fiction. Yet director Tomas Alfredson, in adapting John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel, took classic vampire lore and reinvigorated its tropes for our contemporary times. Centered around its own pre-teen romance, Alfredson’s film delves into a darker, morally ambiguous world where love and exploitation are perilously entwined.
