Critics Scream Movie Title While in Line

Okay, so Matt Reeves' Let Me In (Overture, 10.1), the English language remake of Tomas Alfredson's excellent Let the Right One In screened at Toronto on Saturday and reactions are pretty much solid all the way around, with critics claiming that it's as composed and ice-cold atmospheric as the original 2008 Swedish film.

And then it hit me - well what's the point of that? I didn't want the new film to turn into a Platinum Dunes schlock-fest, but it struck me just now how potentially tedious this new remake may be. I think Chloe Moretz has a chance to be just brilliant here, but honestly, what's the goal here? So it's comparable to the original? Okay...
