Låt den Rätte Komma In (2008)
Thank you again for another evening steeped in merriment and friendship.
So basically: Oskar is a 12 year old boy who gets bullied. He meets Eli, a strange girl who lives next door. They become friends and communicate through the wall using Morse code. Oskar discovers Eli is a vampire and she tries to help him stand up for himself. The end.
Take away all the creepy vampire-y things and this is a really cute movie about two 12 year old outcasts who find love in each other. Mabbs that's just me who thinks that, tho. Anyway, it is a creepy movie. Very creepy. Tho, there's this hilarious scene where this one chick gets attacked by dozens of cats. It was awesome. Even with the creepo factor, it's still a really good movie and an interesting look on vampires - probably because they're both kids and not all dramatic, stupid adult-types. Oskar just accepts that she's a vampire.
This movie defs deserves to be on the list.
Ziggi seal of approval!
This just in: There's an English remake, Let Me In, coming out in October! How awful! It does not need to be remade! At all! Leave it alone. It's like, what?, two years old? And it's brilliant. Gah! This makes me angry. (I guess since it's so awesome they think they can make oodles more money off it). I'm still going to watch it (NOT paying for it) to see how crappy it is.
