“Let Me In” international trailer sinks its teeth into the Web

By Sean O’Connell As many of you may know, I am opposed to remakes, in general, and vehemently opposed to remakes of films that already were good in their initial existence. So the idea that “Cloverfield” director Matt Reeves is remaking Tomas Alfredson’s chilling vampire thriller “Let the Right One In” so soon after its release (we saw it in 2008) has me shaking my head in frustration.

Still, the casting of Reeves’ “Let Me In” is accurate. Chloe Moretz, the controversial Hit Girl from this spring’s “Kick-Ass,” will play undead Abby, who forges a relationship with Owen, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee of “The Road.” Both child actors have given strong performances in other films, and I hope Reeves gets a lot from them.

And now, we’re starting to see footage. An international trailer released to Deadline has made its way to YouTube. Click here to check it out.

It looks ominous, with certain images mirroring the original. Ny blood rushed when I saw Smit-McPhee plunge into a swimming pool. You’ll find out why soon enough.

But it’s also cut a bit like a “Final Destination” sequel, with an alt-rock temp track backing the action. Alfredson’s film had mood, not action. It’s possible Reeves maintains that mood, though it’s hard to tell from this first clip.

“Let Me In” opens Oct. 1, 2010.
