Let Me In

Contribution by Elmo Farmer

I just caught this movie with on demand from and was completely surprised to find a new vampire movie that was actually worth the money it cost to watch.

The story is basically about a kid who has eternally 12 year old vampire move in to the apartment next door. As the story unfolds, you follow the kid through his daily life where he shuffles between his mother who essentially ignores him and the bullies at school who definitely do not ignore him. His life starts changing as soon as he meets Abby.

Becoming friends with a vampire gives him an unspoken nightly date where he actually gets to interact with someone who does not give him a wedgie. The movie then follows Abby and Owen as their growing friendship blossoms into an awkward romance and the suspense builds as you wonder just how long Abby can continue to get the blood she needs while staying ahead of the cop who is steadily closing in on her identity.

This movie is a coming-of age, romance, horror drama with great acting across the board. And it has Chloe Moretz as the sweetest vampire who ever graced the screen. What's not to love?
