This is one of the real finds of 2008.

Washington Post
In the basest of terms, a horror flick. But it's also a spectacularly moving and elegant movie, and to dismiss it into genre-hood, to mentally stuff it into the horror pigeonhole, is to overlook a remarkable film.

A journey through excellence. For starters it has a great story with an unique twist on an old trope told with deliberately slow pace and magnificent attention to details. What cinematography! Those scenes are gonna stay with you for some time. All...

Found this movie on Netflix, and LOVED it. I like Twilight, the books. I like Nosfratu. Can't forget Interview with the Vampire. Then there is thi movie, which surpases all the others. If you have ever been bullied, in love, like to swim, or deal...

An odd flic that, although painfully slow at times, managed to keep me fascinated from start to finish. Be sure & watch the Swedish version with subtitles as the English dubbing is terrible.

Don't expect to be blown away, this one is understated and haunting. The contrasts between the characters are nicely noted, the drama moving, the cinematography elegant. It's also quite bloody, so there's something there for everyone.

Unlike any other "vampire movie" I've seen. Overall hauntingly unique, beautifully moody, and respectfully disturbing. Highly recommended viewing. Don't overlook it just because it's Swedish, or you'll be missing out on a cool take on the genre that...

I generally don't love vampire movies. I can't quite say why, but I think it's that I've never really found vampires all that frightening. This film, on the other hand, has an underlying intensity and melancholy that is brilliantly handled, totally...

Mesmerizing. The slow pacing and stark settings make this film very "Swedish," but its the reductive sensibility created by its director that makes it a new favorite. Highly recommended.

NOT A REVIEW OF THE FILM A REVIEW OF NE+FLIX's INSTANT VERSION: There is something wrong with the vocal track. It can still be enjoyed in the subtitled version, but it's kind of like watching a silent movie - all the sound effects are there and...

I have not seen the subtitled version but I saw the dubbed version and it is HORRENDOUS. Perhaps I would have liked the movie had I seen the subtitled since I'd heard the movie was so great. I hate dubbed movies and this one did not disappoint in...

This is a great movie! The way it was shot, the story, and especially the two children actors were all amazing in my opinion. This is such a different take on a vampire movie, I truly loved it.

This is the second vampire movie I saw this week and both treat their subject vastly different. While sharing some of the same plot elements of the recently popular film and book series Twilight, the two films could not be more different. This is a...

This has got to be one of the most original vampire movies ever. While it does certainly have scenes that will make you jump, it isn't really a horror film, but not really an adolescent coming of age film either. There is supposedly talks about...

Since the silent "Nosferatu," vampire films have been one of the sturdiest genres, so you'd have thought you'd seen every possible twist, including vampires in space. Wrong! "LET THE RIGHT ONE IN" is about a lonely, picked-on 12-year-old boy who...

It's really interesting to put this film next to Twilight just to see how teenage angst and vampires can be handled SO differently by two very different cultures. This film is really a great addition to the genre and captures the place and...
