“Let Me In” Should Be Left Out [VIDEO]
What's better than "creepy kids' in a horror movie? How about a "creepy vampire/ghoul kid"? Well, it doesn't quite pan out in "Let Me In".
I've said it time and time again, I like pretty much everything so definably read in between the lines of my reviews to see if a movie is something you'd like or not. I just published a review of "Suckerpunch" which I found to be a great move even though it's a little confusing. I just kind of enjoyed it for what it was.
With all of that out of the way, I'd say "Let Me In" plays like an episode of some anthology series like "The Twilight Zone" or something. It's like somebody had a pretty decent idea, but didn't do much with it . The story is simple, a bullied kid gets a new next door neighbor. That neighbor happens to be a vampire/ghoul kid. You might expect a cool revenge/suspense flick, but it's really not like that. The movie is just click this: creepy, creepy, creepy, "big"climax, the end. It's like a rollercoaster that takes 90 minutes to get to the top, but when you get there you find out the top is only ten feet in the air, then you slide down the other side going, really?
I had high hopes because Chloe Moretz, who was "Hit Girl" in "Kick Ass" is in it. She's pretty creepy doesn't get enough screen time. This was one of the very, very few movies I found was not worth my time. I give it one Nightmare out of five.
