I’m obviously a passionate admirer of Matt Reeves‘ Let Me In, and so I’m posting anything that will keep the fire going. So I have no qualms about running two quotes from two significant admirers of the film — Stephen King and original Let The Right One In novelist John Ajvide Lindquist — that were provided last night by Relativity.
King: “Let Me In is a genre-busting triumph. Not just a horror film, but the best American horror film in the last 20 years. Whether you’re a teenager or a film-lover in your 50s, you’ll be knocked out. Rush to it now. You can thank me later.”
Lindqvist: “Let The Right One In is a great Swedish movie. Let Me In is a great American movie. There are notable similarities and the spirit of Tomas Alfredson is present. But Let Me In puts the emotional pressure in different places and stands firmly on its own legs. Like the Swedish movie it made me cry, but not at the same points. Let Me In is a dark and violent love story, a beautiful piece of cinema and a respectful rendering of my novel for which I am grateful. Again.”
