Unless youve been living under a rock, or you really don't pay attention to movie buzz, you probably already know that "Let Me In" is an American-British horror film directed by Matt Reeves based on the novel "Let the Right One In" by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the Swedish film adaptation of the same name. It tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who develops a friendship with a vampire child in a New Mexico town in the early 1980s.
In adapting the film, a few adjustments were made, such as changing the names of the protagonists to Owen and Abby, and moving the setting from the Stockholm suburb of Blackeberg to "a small New Mexico town." Los Alamos County has granted a special request from the film's director and producer to name the town in the movie "Los Alamos, New Mexico."
Producer Simon Oakes has made it clear that the plot of "Let Me In" will closely resemble that of the original film, except that it will be made "very accessible to a wider audience"; "If you say 'remake', I think that's true to say. That's what it is. It's not a reimagining. [It has] the same beats, maybe the scares are a little bit more scary. We've been able to ramp that up quite a lot, obviously for budgetary reasons."
Being that I lived in New Mexico in the 1980s, the idea of vampires wandering around in Los Alamos doesn't sound that far-fetched to me.
The place was really weird back then.
