Hidden Gem Films - Let the Right One In (2008)

A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy's wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father.

The story of "Let the Right One" In follows Eli and Oskar as they start to bond, and Eli insists that Oskar should fight back against the bullies. When Oskar finds out that she is a vampire, he takes it all in his stride as only a child could.

"Let the Right One In" is not a gore-fest, nor is it packed with action and tension, but the story of these two characters is somewhat mesmerizing.

A very fresh take on the genre. 8/10
