Let Me In

Sifting through the “Watch Instantly” catalog on Netflix is tedious. It’s also highly concerning when Netflix seems 4.5 stars certain that you’d just adore a movie called Shrooms and also any film starring Hillary Duff. It’s time: Look at your life. Look at your choices. Thankfully, Netflix just got a bit of awesome with new arrival Let Me In, the American remake of the brilliant Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In. It manages to elude the “remake epidemic” that has been plaguing Hollywood and succeeds in being totally rad. Let’s get your star ratings back on track, shall we?
