Exclusive “Let Me In” clip sinks its teeth into Internet

Hollywoodnews.com: We’re keeping a close eye on Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In,” a remake of Tomas Alfredson’s killer vampire flick that stars Kodi Smit-McPhee of “The Road” as a lonely young boy who befriends a young girl in his apartment complex (Chloe Moretz) and eventually learns her deadly secret.
The film will play Toronto next week before heading to Austin to hold court at Fantastic Fest. This morning, though, we have an exclusive clip from the film courtesy of the cleverly titled Web site Enter Under Penalty of Death.

Reeves certainly has his work cut out for him. The tremendous original, titled “Let the Right One In,” has a relatively strong cult audience. And it only came out in 2008, meaning it’s still very fresh in people’s mind, so comparisons – positive and negative – will be easy to make.
That being said, if Reeves can duplicate the mood of the first film, he has a chance to introduce a tender and terrifying story to a larger, American audience who don’t like reading subtitles.
“Let Me In” opens everywhere on Oct. 1.
