According to the new school of cinematic dread — it kicked in over the last decade with J-horror films — a fright flick is eerier if it doesn’t make sense. If random arty blood thrills are your cup of fear, perhaps you’ll enjoy Let the Right One In, a Swedish head-scratcher that has a few creepy images but very little holding them together. A serial killer, who bleeds his victims in public places (Why? Who knows?), has a 12-year-old daughter who’s a vampire. Who befriends the blond boy next door. Who skulks through the movie in a blank-faced torpor that will have you screaming…for something coherent to happen. C
