This past year, there's been a European movie catching a lot of buzz from the anglophones. Let The Right One In is a horror movie with a new twist on the vampire genre. I caught a clip of it on one of those Siskel & Ebert rip-offs and fell in love with it. I haven't seen the movie yet, and I am not sure if it will even make it to my neck of the woods. Blockbuster isn't exactly around the block where I live.
I'm disappointed about my chances of seeing the movie, but when I learned the film is based on a novel by a Swedish author, John Ajvide Lindqvist, I added one more to the wish list. I must find this book. I'm not a vampire fanatic, but it's a mythos with quite a few great characters. Dracula, Lestat, Spike, Vampire Bill, whoever that Twilight guy is.
Besides, I'm a sucker for a story with creepy little kids in it. It's such a timeworn device in stories, but dammit it's worked so many times in the past.
How about you? Have you read this? Is it on your wish list or TBR pile too? Or could you care less about it?
