Not your average vampire story, Let the Right One In is a haunting, beautiful and unique take on vampiric lore, as twelve-year-old Oskar meets Eli, a young girl who moves into his building with her guardian.

But Eli is more than she seems, as her 'father' Håkan is seen butchering young men and trying to collect their blood. His constant failure leads her to take matters into her own hands, and people in the small, snowy Swedish town of Blackeburg start disappearing and a woman she attacks starts to change...

Oskar and Eli are two sides of the same coin. Eli is the monster that sweet, bullied Oskar wishes he could be, and Oskar... he's the companion Eli needs to survive.

But just who are the real monsters in this story?

I would love to hear your thoughts on Let the Right One In !
