Overture Films has released the first two images from Matt Reeves’ Let Me In, the American remake of the spectacular Swedish coming of age film Let the Right One In.
The first image depicts vampire Abby (Chloe Moretz, Kick-Ass) looking as if she has just fed and wants to be “let in.” The second and eerily similar to the Swedish film has Abby and Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) likely meeting for the first time.
Matt Reeves has taken a lot of flack for remaking the beloved Swedish film so soon after it was released. The original’s faithful following also fears Reeves’ will bring his shaky-cam style to an intimate coming of age story.
