Let the right one in - Låt den rätte komma in (2008)

This is a very creepy movie, but not in that cheap Hollywood spending billions to make a movie that is more gross than creepy, what I'm talking about is a sort of intimate creepiness.

There is no audible music, except when the characters themselves listen to the record player (or what have you). Excessive and increasingly disturbing sounds however, abound.

What makes this film so interesting is the in depth character development over the essentially minimalist Nordic backdrop.

In one sentence: its a story about a boy falling in love.

Not recommended for the faint of heart.
