Editorial Reviews

First ever release on vinyl for this modern day classic. One of the most striking and beautiful vampire movies in decades and featuring a soundtrack loaded with dark, brooding themes that still manage to be achingly melancholic at the same time.

Combining dark orchestral textures with a strikingly melodic beauty, Johan Söderqvist has written a truly unique score for Let the Right One In. Tomas Alfredson's film is based on the vampire novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and has won numerous international awards. The music is performed by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra and features what is sure to be considered one of the single finest film themes in recent times.

Exclusive cover art by Candice Tripp, an internationally renowned fine artist that has shown work in galleries such as Lazarides (London) & Joshua Liner (New York) and is currently represented by Black Rat Press in London.

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is my new favorite film. I came across it on Landmark Theatre's website last month. I loved the film I have seen it twice. The film is based on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel LET ME IN which has been re-published as LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. The story centers around twelve year old Oskar Eriksson who lives in Blackberge, Sweden, a working class neighborhood. Oskar is a loner and is constantly picked on by a few of his peers at school. One night he meets the mysterious Eli, a young girl who had moved into his apartment building with her adult companion Hakan. Initially the two children are wary of each other but over time they begin a cautious friendship which leads to a subtle romance.

I loved the film because it transcends the horror genre. The film's score by Johan Soderqvist with the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra really drives the melancholy and sadness in the characters in the film. The classical film score is definitely not your traditional score for a horror movie. Johan Soderqvist does a brilliant job of capturing the essence of the films' characters as well as the film itself. I love the fact that Johan wanted to incorporate both melody and emotions into his music. "Eli and Oskar" in particular is a stunning song that captures the loneliness and sadness of these two young individuals. "Eli's Theme" is a beautiful and haunting track. The melodies are emotionally stirring which fits perfectly with Eli's loneliness and angst. Another great track is "Eli and Oskar". The movement reminds me of the music from PSYCHO with the gradual build up and then the explosion of cymbals, percussion, and the array of stringed instruments. Another great song is "The Father". This is from the scene where Oskar is visiting his father.

Like many, I was incredibly touched by the film 'Let the Right One In'. The haunting film has garnered many re-viewings from me. The heart wrenching tale of two twelve year olds that find, accept, and pull each other out of a pit of loneliness is so memorable that I've been grabbing everything LTROI related that I can find. The UK blu-ray edition, US release movie poster, and the soundtrack.

However, I simply can not listen to the soundtrack. Not because it's bad in anyway, but because it is so spectacular. Johan Söderqvist captures the themes and characters of LTROI in his score so hauntingly that I'm typically overcome emotionally and have to silence it in order to get anything productive done. Upon listening, I find myself staring out the window, my eyes wet, remembering the build up of their sweet romance. The snow covered playset in the square, the Rubik's cube, the candy store...(sigh).

Eli and Oskar's themes instantly produce tears for me. Each theme captures the character in music perfectly. The melancholy score captures the blossoming friendship and love between the Oskar and Eli through sweeping strings and beautiful acoustic guitars. However, each track is typically accompanied by an undercurrent of additional strings (this time screeching), Söderqvist's masterful use of a bass waterphone, and other otherworldly sounds.

These undercurrent sounds capture the horror that each character has experienced; Eli's 200 years of forced horror and loneliness, and Oskar's bullied existence. Most effective is the bass waterphone, it's dripping sounds reminiscent of dripping blood, or seconds ticking down reminding the listener of Eli's long and lonely life, soon relieved by someone very special.

A wonderfully melancholy masterpiece!

Absolutly wonderful score composed by Johan Soderqvist. He created a real masterpiece puts a spell on the listeners. Gentle violin voices mixed with atmospheric background sounds build up a melodic harmony supported by soft piano and harp parts.
A lot of mystic parts occur in the score, but never unbearable according to most films of this genre.
If you like sensitive and emotional soundtracks you'll get goosebumps while listening to this one.

5 STARS!!!!

Absoluter Geheimtipp! Top-Score zu einem Top-Film. Auch wenn man den Film nicht gesehen hat (auf jeden Fall nachholen! :-)) ist die Musik von Johan Söderqvist ein wahres Juwel das verzaubert. Sanft "ausgedehnte" Streicherklänge mit atmosphärischen Klängen im Hintergrund bauen eine wunderbare melodische Harmonie auf. Vor allem im Haupthema "Eli's Theme" greifen diese Eigenschaften auf den Hörer über. Desweiteren wird die Hauptinstrumentierung durch filigrane Harfen- und Pianoklänge unterstützt. Mystische Teile kommen im Soundtrack natürlich auch vor, aber nie unerträglich schräge Parts, wie sie bei den meisten Horro-Fantasie-Filmen zum Einsatz kommen.
Wer auf sensible Filmmusik steht, wird hier mit Sicherheit eine Gänsehaut bekommen. Seit langem mal wieder ein wunderschöner Score zu einem zauberhaften Grusical.

Qualität aus Schweden, da gibt's nichts zu meckern, daher von mir 5 STERNE. :-)

I love the movie, and I love this score. It has just the right dark but innocent mood. Perfect to listen to when you're just lounging around or working on something that could use some theme music to it. Get it if you're a fan, or just if you're interested.
