Much has already been said about remakes in general, especially in the case of Let Me In, which is the American version of the 2008 Swedish horror film Let The Right One In. Is it necessary to redo such a recent movie?
While I’ll leave that one up to the masses to discuss, I will say that it’s probably best to see both movies and base your decision on each of the film’s merits (or lack thereof). And if you missed Matt Reeves’ (Cloverfield) version in theaters, never fear: shortly after the new year, you can watch it in the comfort of your own home.
Per the press release:
Genre fans and DVD aficionados will be thrilled with the generous amount of bonus features on the Let Me In Blu-ray™ and DVD, including the much-talked-about visual effects piece, “Car Crash Sequence Step-By-Step”, with commentary from Director Matt Reeves; “From The Inside: A Look at the Making of Let Me In”; “The Art of Special Effects”; Unrated Deleted Scenes; Trailer Gallery: Greenband Trailer, Redband Trailer; and a Poster and Still Gallery. The Blu-ray™ edition also includes the Blu-ray™ exclusive: “Dissecting Let Me In”, as well as a digital copy of the film. And if that wasn’t enough, both editions include a Let Me In comic book with an exclusive cover designed by award-winning comic book artist Sean Phillips. A graphic novel will be released next year.
Being released on February 1st, 2011 by Anchor Bay Entertainment, the Blu-ray will set you back $39.99, while the DVD will run $29.98.
