Halloween Film Tuesday: “Let the Right One In” (2008)


The film for Tuesday, 29 October, will be “Let the Right One In” (2008). Start your Halloween celebrations with a scary movie from Sweden. The story is set in the 1980s. It is the story of a bullied young boy who befriends a vampire. But fear not, it goes well beyond the standard vampire genre. It is beautifully filmed but essentially dark and unsentimental.
