Movie: Let Me In (2010)

Innocence dies. Abby doesn't.

Let Me In (2010) is a Gothic horror movie set in the early 1980s, directed by Matt Reeves (director of Cloverfield).

Synopsis: 12-year old Owen's (Kodi Smit-McPhee) parents are going through a divorce. At home, his mother's estranged behavior suffocates him. At school, he's bullied by his schoolmates. One day, Abby (Chloë Moretz) and his father move into the apartment next door. Their unique friendship blossoms each day even after Owen realizes that Abby isn't the girl she seems to be.

Generally, this movie garners positive reviews that mostly centered on the beautiful and chilling chemistry between Chloë Moretz, (Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass) and Kodi Smit-McPhee. These two young stars give the audience a remarkable performance. This movie broods with heavy gloominess and eeriness and I think this is due to the fact that these two actors are still children and that makes their special and beautiful friendship outstanding.

Another point that deserves attention in this movie is the beautiful, startling element contrasts the director uses, such as coldness versus warmth, good versus evil, guilt versus innocence, and despair versus hope.

There are also quite a number of disturbing scenes of Abby the creature inflicting hurt to its victim. So, get ready to stomach some gruesome, bloody scenes.

Overall, I find this movie rather slow, gloomy, and foreboding -- the kind of feeling that I don't really appreciate while watching a movie. "Let Me In" is not your typical gore-fest type of horror movie. You gotta appreciate the slow pacing in order to give it a positive remark. As for me, I'd say I don't really like it. Well, to each man his own opinion. :)
