Commended by the very head honcho of horror himself, Guillermo del Toro, as a film "as delicate, haunting, and poetic a film as you'll ever see", the Swedish film, Låt den rätte komma, better-known to the English-speaking crowd as "Let the Right One In" gets the Hollywood treatment.

The multi-award-winning, Swedish romantic horror film directed by Tomas Alfredson has garnered massive critical acclaim, with Bloody Disgusting ranking the film first in their list of the 'Top 20 Horror Films of the Decade', Empire magazine ranking it #15 in their 2010 list of "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema". And now, with the director of Cloverfield, Matt Reeves on helm, skepticism from audiences on "Let Me In" are inevitably anticipated.

Will it suck (pun intended)? The film, scheduled to be released on October 1st, has recently released the Red Band version of the trailer, embedded right below. While at first glance, the film certainly seemed to inclined to an almost shot-for-shot remake (evidently so, from the original's trailer, embedded further below for your comparison purpose), we strongly believed that the remake, despite its lack of originality, might just make a capable addition to an otherwise somewhat weak line-ups in the last quarter of the year. The remake will featured Chloë Moretz (better-known as the ass-kicking Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass) as Abby (Eli, the perpetually 12-year-old Vampire in the original), and Australian actor Kodi Smit-McPhee (better-known as the unnamed son of Viggo Mortensen's also unnamed character in the screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Road) as Owen (Oskar in the original).

Director Matt Reeves has had an interesting interview with iO9 that covered some of the more intriguing aspects of the remake. For those curious on the remake, do head over for the interview.

Without further ado, the Red Band trailer, followed by the trailer of the awesome original, and some posters that have been released, along with some posters of the original film.
