If you're an avid reader of this or just about any other horror web-publication, then no doubt you've heard plenty about the Swedish indie-vampire flick Let The Right One In - a somber, haunting & beautiful tale directed with finesse by Tomas Alfredson. In the last year, Let The Right One In has quickly garnered "cult" like status among genre & movie fans alike.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0 Chicago – Tomas Alfredson’s “Let the Right One In” was one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2008, an arthouse sensation that has been so beloved by everyone who has seen it that it ranks among the best films of all time on IMDb based on user votes. Based on the book by John Ajvide Lindqvist, “Let the Right One In” is a masterpiece of its genre, one of the most essential vampire films ever made. The Blu-Ray is a little disappointing, but the film itself makes up for it.
The theme of nearly every piece of vampire fiction is isolation. The vampire is the outcast, the count in a creepy castle who will outlive or kill everyone he’s ever cared about. “Let the Right One In” brilliantly melds that idea with one of the times when a lot us felt like outcasts - puberty.
