Let the Right One In

Genre: Horror; Starring: Kare Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar; Director: Tomas Alfredson; Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): In Season; MPAA Rating: In Season; Distributor: Magnet

Leave it to Sweden, moody land of Bergman and long winter nights, to come up with the best vampire movie of last year (a Hollywood remake is already planned).

Let the Right One In is a bloody great film — but the EXTRAS are anemic. A?
