Let The Right One In
Monday, 8 February 2010

Tomas Alfredson. Sweden. 2009. 109 mins. Sub-titles. Cert 15.

Bullied 12-year-old Oskar befriends Eli, the girl next door who only comes out at night. One of 2009’s most critically acclaimed new releases, this extraordinary film is probably the classiest horror movie you will ever see. Macabre, yes, but also lyrical and tender. The Times called it ‘pure magic’. It was BBC film critic Mark Kermode's Film Of The Year.

STOP PRESS: Nominated for Best Film Not In The English Language, 2010 BAFTAs.
