Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The enduring popularity of the vampire myth rests, in part, on sexual magnetism. In Let the Right One In, Tomas Alfredson's carefully controlled, yet sympathetic take on John Ajvide Lindqvist's Swedish bestseller-turned-screenplay, the protagonists are pre-teens, unlike the fully-formed night crawlers of HBO’s True Blood or Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight (both also based on popular novels). Instead, 12-year-old Oskar (future heartbreaker Kåre Hedebrant) and Eli (Lina Leandersson) enter into a deadly form of puppy love. The product of divorce, Oskar lives with his harried mother, while his new neighbor resides with a mystery man named Håkan (Per Ragnar), who takes care of her unique dietary needs. From the wintery moment in 1982 that the lonely, towheaded boy spots the strange, dark-haired girl skulking around their outer-Stockholm tenement, he senses a kindred spirit. They bond, innocently enough, over a Rubik's Cube, but little does Oskar realize that Eli has been 12 for a very long time. Meanwhile, at school, bullies torment the pale and morbid student mercilessly. Through his friendship with Eli, Oskar doesn't just learn how to defend himself, but to become a sort of predator himself, begging the question as to whether Eli really exists or whether she represents a manifestation of his pent-up anger and resentment. Naturally, the international success of Lindqvist's fifth feature, like Norway's chilling Insomnia before it, has inspired an American remake, which is sure to boast superior special effects, but can't possibly capture the delicate balance he strikes here between the tender and the terrible. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Oscar, a 12-year-old fragile and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl he befriends, who moves into his building.   When Oscar discovers that Eli is a vampire it does not deter his increasing feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent.  When Eli loses the man who protects and provides for her, and as suspicions are mounting from her neighbors and police she must move on to stay alive.  However when Oscar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can.

Format:Blu-ray
Do not buy this movie yet. Magnolia butchered the subtitles and will be releasing a version with the theatrical subtitles in the near future. Magnolia will not replace this disc with the fixed one, so hold off on your purchase. You will know the correct version when you see "subtitles: English (theatrical release)" in the specs on the back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles really do make a difference March 24, 2009
Format:DVD
I was very disappointed with this DVD. So much so that I'm returning my copy of it. I saw the movie in theatres, and found it masterful. The amazing tone is part of the beauty of the film, and the subtitles on the US DVD release are a travesty. They remove most of the subtlety from the tone and characters (see [...] for examples). The movie I saw in theatres was a masterpiece; the movie on this DVD (using subtitles) is a mediocrity. If you are going to buy this DVD, either download and use the theatrical subtitles or use the mediocre dubbing track. As for me, I'm going to look for another region's copy or wait for a re-release.

In the end, this DVD is a masterclass on why good subtitle translations are critical in foreign films.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!! March 23, 2009
Format:DVD
THE DVD SUBTITLES ARE POORLY, POORLY TRANSLATED AND RUIN THE MOVIE!!!!
Magnolia/MAGNET refused to pay for the original translations and hired there own in order to cut costs. I encourage you to write Magnolia/MAGNET and demand a re-issue with the correct subtitles, and a refund for your defective DVDs and Blu-rays

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let the Right One In is poignant, sad, weird, different, elusive, as well as being a fine movie. Oskar is a blond 12-year-old who lives with his divorced mother in an apartment complex in Stockholm. He's bullied incessantly at school. Neither his mother nor his father seems to have much time for him. He's a quiet kid who dreams of getting back at his tormentors. He doesn't seem to have any friends. Then an older man and a child move into the apartment building. Her name, we learn, is Eli. She's 12 years old, too, pale, and at times looks haggard. Oskar meets her one evening in the playground in front of the apartment complex. Snow is deep on the ground. The weather is freezing. The cold doesn't bother Eli. By now we know Eli is a vampire. Oskar realizes this later.

Let The Right One In is a strange fusion of coming-of-age and horror, but the result is something else. Don't ask me what. It doesn't fit in any film genre I'm familiar with. Calling it `horror" is too facile. Calling it "coming of age" is too shallow. In the course of the movie people will die, drained of their blood. Eli's...what?...protector?...partner?...the older man named Hakan she lives with...will kill for the blood he and Eli must have to survive. He'll die a terrible death himself. Eli will tell Oskar that they can't be friends, yet Oskar yearns for friendship. He asks Eli to be his girl friend before he knows she is a vampire and she asks him if he would like her if she weren't a girl. When he asks her age, she tells him she is 12 and has been for a long time. Oskar's innocence may be part of his protection. Eli is not innocent, but at times she seems as fragile as Oskar. Like the man she lives with, Eli will kill for blood. She must.

Kare Hedebrant plays Oskar and Lina Leandersson plays Eli.

1.0 out of 5 stars Magpictures: LET THE WRONG ONE IN March 25, 2009
Format:DVD
I too bought this film from amazon and wish that Magnolia had disclosed a change in the subtitles from original release of the film. This change completely worsens a great foreign film.

Buyers beware of this problem with the release. Hopefully we can expect Magnolia to own up to their decision and replace what i consider defective copies.

MY thoughts echo another commenter:

Unbelievable. Just read the comment saying that they WILL REISSUE the disc but that they WILL NOT HAVE AN EXCHANGE PROGRAM for those who purchased their DEFECTIVE PRODUCT. So let me get this straight; those of us who love this film, preordered it, then pointed out their mistake, thereby saving others from a mutilated film end up being PUNISHED because of it? Magnolia, you're a real class act.

There is no excuse for this pitiful translation - regardless of whether you speak Swedish or not - the dvd subtitle track is awful. Wait for the new edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Great Transfer, BOGUS SUBTITLES! April 2, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
"Let The Right One In" is without a doubt one the best films of 2008, bar none. Atmospheric, touching, chilling, disturbing, and haunting, it will remain with you for days after your first viewing experience.

That being said I was REALLY anticipating the Blu-ray release. Unfortunately, Magnet/Magnolia Pictures decided to REPLACE the theatrical subtitles with a new translation for home video. The result? A different film altogether. The egregious aspects of this are:

* There is NO indication anywhere on the product packaging that the subtitles on the disc differ from the theatrical subs.
* Magnet/Magnolia has acknowledged the problem in a press release and has stated publicly that future pressings of "Let The Right One In" will include the ORIGINAL theatrical subtitles in addition to the subs on the current disc.
* Magnet/Magnolia IS NOT OFFERING ANY KIND OF TRADE-IN OR REPLACEMENT PROGRAM FOR CUSTOMERS WHO PURCHASED THE CURRENT "DEFECTIVE" DISC!!!! In other words, if you own the "defective" release and you want the original theatrical subtitles, you'll have to spend an additional $20-$25 for the "new" disc to get them!!

Because this release has been significantly altered from its original theatrical form, AND because Magnet/Magnolia seems to have no respect for it's customers or any concept of what customer service means, I'm giving this release of "Let The Right One In" a single star. DON'T BUY IT. Send a message to the studio that treating their customers in this way has financial consequences. Maybe that's something they WILL understand.

How do you interpret the ending of the movie?
I think your interpretation is entirely accurate. Eli is "developing" Oskar for the role as her new consort. Hakan has forfeited that role by his ineptitude. In Hakan we see Oskar's future; in Oskar we see Hakan's past. So there is a weirdly sinister overtone to what appears to be... Read More

No...it's too risky. Magnolia hasn't done a full blown correction plan for the DVD. I actually found the corrected DVD at Barnes & Noble.
