This Swedish art house horror flick could easily be described as "Twilight for adults", although that description wouldn't be a fair reflection on the film.
A bullied school boy develops a friendship with a young girl around the same age. The twist- she's a vampire.
Although there are moments containing violence and death, the main focus is on the relationship and development of trust between the two main characters rather than horror and gore.
Hollywood just couldn't resist a remake, changing the title from an original one with a hidden meaning to something more brainlessly formulaic ("Let Me In").
