I was fortunate enough to attend the UK premiere screening at Bafta of
this great new British horror film from upcoming writer/director Kelly
Smith. UK horror fans have been crying out for new talent within the
genre and Don't Let Him In beats most direct-to-DVD horror fodder hands
down. Forget Hammer's WAKE WOOD with it's disappointing acting and
direction and head for Don't Let Him In. Sam Hazeldine is outstanding
as the wounded hitchhiker who seemingly falls prey to the rural slasher
known as The Tree Surgeon.
I really don't want to give too much away but if you are a fan of British Horror, particularly with a 70's sensibility you will really like this one. References that i can see are Norman J Warren's TERROR (1978)and Rick Roesslers' SLAUGHTERHOUSE (1987) among many others.
