Let Me In (the US-remake of Let the Right One In) gets a teaser.

For better or worse, this looks like an almost shot-for-shot remake of the original film, with most of the visual highlights on display in this teaser. On the plus side, the cast is top-notch (Chloe Mortz from Kick-Ass, Kodi Smit-McPhee from The Road, plus Richard Jenkins and Elias Koteas) and the original material is so strong that simply connecting the dots will result in a pretty solid film. Of course, that just leaves the question as to what the point of the remake was in the first place. After all, the same film, with subtitles or dubbed into English, is available right here. The Matt Reeves-helmed redo opens on October 1st, 2010.

Oh yeah look at that! I really enjoyed the original and this remake dosent look to bad. Though I think playing it as a straight horror flick seems to be a mistake.
