There is a timbre of voice
that comes from not being heard
and knowing / you are not being
heard / noticed only
by others / not heard

Horror Movie Challenge 29/30

Let the Right One In directed by Tomas Alfredson (2008)

This was more a film about love/friendship and peer to peer relationships than anything else. Oh, and awesome Swedish style. Gonna start tucking my oversized sweaters into my bleached jeans, no problem. Anyway, this one was shot really beautifully, using lots of reflections, mirrors, mise en abyme for days.

In short, a young vampire meets and sort of falls in love with her neighbor boy, a blonde, almost ghostlike fellow, who returns her affections. When he finds out the truth, he protects her from retaliation. It’s never a threat that she would infect or hurt him, which is pretty adorable, despite her total bloodthirst for everyone else in this film. If you haven’t seen this one yet, I’d really recommend it- a perfectly loving and spooky Swedish film suitable for winter.

The Score: 8.1/10
