Let the Right One In U.S. Trailer!

Those lucky bastards over at IGN got their hands on the official trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In, which Magnet will unspool in New York and LA on October 24th as part of their Six Shooter Film Series. It’s subtitled, not dubbed, which makes me happier than it probably should.

Original Director Talks Right One Remake

Just the other day we let you know about Cloverfield helmer Matt Reeves being chosen as the director of the Let the Right One In remake, and while the selection is “eh” to most of us, Tomas Alfredson, director of the brilliant

Dinner for Fiends: The Death of Horror

Yes, that’s right, horror is dead. All right, maybe not dead exactly, if it were we’d be out of a job, but it’s certainly not looking too healthy. It's emaciated, too pale, and tufts of hair keep falling out.

    Plot Synopsis:

    Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends. And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself. Oskar is a 12 year old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. He dreams about his absent father, gets bullied relentlessly at school and has a macabre fascination with murder. Eli is the young girl who moves in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200 year old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood.

    Official Let the Right One In Poster

    I really don’t know how I feel about this or pretty much any other poster that’s come out for Let the Right One In. They’ve all got the same general color scheme and don’t really say anything at all about the movie. I find it strange since there are so many iconic shots in this film that could be better utilized.

    Dinner for Fiends: Death Racing Out of the Closet

    I don’t know what it is about discussing a Paul W.S. Anderson movie, but for some reason it made us all really ... gay. The homosexual under and overtones in this Dinner for Fiends made us all take a long, hard look at our own sexuality. We found it disturbing.

    Fantasia 2008: Day 9

    I’m baaaack. Not since four years ago, the first time we started the Fantasia blog has anyone had to do the coverage solo, so props to McCannibal for keeping the train rolling last week. It’s a tough job fitting in two, three, and sometimes four films a day, choking down a grease laden meal, drinking the skuzzy yeasty swill that is all you can get after leeching a beer ticket or two off of Mitch, and heading home at midnight to start writing.

    Fantasia 2008: The First Week

    As I mentioned in my opening soiree blog for this year’s Fantasia Festival, it’s been a tough one without my compadre Evil Andy. Fantasia is not a situation where one can be semi-committal – any given time of day where other obligations tie you down can lead to a cinematic masterpiece (or disasterpiece) slipping through your fingers.
