Hipster Alchemist’s review published on Letterboxd:
LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is one of the most layered, atmospheric and textured movies ever made. As vampire movies go this touches the cloak hem of masterpiece. The fact that it doesn't feel like a vampire flick at all makes it one of the best of its kind. Requires more patience than most contemporary horror films but the payoff is significantly greater. Almost ethereal, subtle, nuanced and the calmest vampire movie you're ever likely to see.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that it's probably the best vampire movie .... Let the Right One In takes its sting from the fact that the one you let in your door may, in the long run, not be so right after all. You've never seen a vampire movie like this before -- that I can promise you. There hasn't been one like this before. Exquisitely crafted!
