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). Tomas Alfredson’s import is like a Scandinavian Twilight minus the teen-steam schmaltz, packing in great gooey scares while tracing the friendship between a picked-on 12-year-old boy and a girl who hungers for the red stuff. Let the Right One In is a bloody great film — but the EXTRAS are anemic. A?
