Vampire lore rarely comes across in pop culture as inspired and alive as it does in Let the Right One In, written by John Ajvide Lindqvist, adapted from his own bestselling novel. Oskar is a melancholic 12-year-old so drawn to violence that he keeps a scrapbook of newspaper crime-reports and privately acts out imaginary revenge scenarios on the school bullies. He may be a serial killer in the making, but he also longs for the sympathy his estranged parents fail to give him. He meets his emotional counterpart with new next-door neighbour, Eli. The intense bond that develops between these two outsiders is considerably more complex than the usual youth romance because Eli is a vampire. Though the film is predominantly a haunting, at times gruesome horror tale, it’s also a profound exploration of gender and child psychology, and a full-blooded coming-of-age love story in its own right.
