Culture Club: Let Me In
In Friday’s Arts & Books review, our film critic Anthony Quinn suggested that while Let Me In fails to live up to its Scandinavian forebear, it remains a decent enough film in its own right.
“To those who admired the Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In this American remake will not cause offence, though it signally lacks the original’s haunting impact. Those who don’t know the original will perhaps be more impressed.”
However in The Independent on Sunday, Nicholas Barber sought to uncover why director Matt Reeves decided to remake the film at all, calling it a “strange endeavour” and “less subtle than the Swedish one…but not dumbed down anywhere near as much as it might have been [in order to cash in on the Twilight market].”
