Second Let Me In Image Features Our Protagonists at Play

Hot on the heels of the first image of Chloe Moretz as Vampire Abby comes a new still featuring her and her playmate Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

The image comes courtesy of the LA Times, which recently caught up with director Matt Reeves, who had this to offer about the project:

We tried to create the approaching, foreboding dread of movies like ‘The Shining,’ where you feel like something wicked is unraveling and it’s not going to end well,” said Reeves. “That’s what I responded to about the original, the juxtaposition of those tones, this very disturbing story, but at the center of it there are these very tender emotions. That’s a very unusual mix, and that’s what drew me in and dug into me.

In case you are living under a rock and do not know the premise of the story … Let Me In is based upon the book by author John Ajvide Lindqvist and follows an alienated 12-year-old boy who befriends a mysterious young newcomer in his small New Mexico town and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • LSD Zombie

    Why is she wearing a hoodie?! What made those original playground scenes so eerie was the fact that she was only wearing pajamas in the freezing cold.

  • Terminal

    Ugh, this is going to be so lame.

    Nice to see JJ Abrams has loaned the production some of his lens flares from STAR TREK.

    Maybe we can look forward to being nearly blinded by them in every third shot like in that movie.

      I think the director would have to work exceptionally hard to make this as bad as the last Star Trek. It would take a conscious effort.
