Let Me In

In Los Alamos, New Mexico, the twelve year-old Owen is a lonely and outcast boy bullied in school by Kenny and two other classmates; at home, Owen dreams of avenging himself against the trio of bullies. He befriends his twelve-year-old next door neighbor, Abby, who only appears during the night in the playground of their building. Meanwhile, Abby’s father is a wanted serial-killer who drains the blood of his victims to supply Abby, who is actually an ancient vampire. Abby advises Owen to fight Kenny; however, soon he discovers that she is a vampire, and he feels fear and love for the girl. Meanwhile a police officer is investigating the murder cases, believing that it is a satanic cult.

Director Matt Reeves explained why a deleted scene, showing Abby (Chloë Grace Moretz) being attacked as a human, was cut. (The scene was released on the Internet). Contrary to the belief that the scene, depicting her being changed to a vampire and entering Owen’s mind, would be too intense for the viewers, Reeves stated that he felt the scene would have disturbed the flow of the film. He remarked that he wished it would have been able to make the final cut.

The film was fifth among the ten lowest-grossing releases of 2010 from major studios (movies released in over 1,500 theatres). It went on to gross $27,093,592 worldwide.
