So what's the deal with this Swedish vampire movie that I've been gushing about since last March? OK, here's a quick rundown:

Based on an award-winning novel by John Lindqvist (and adapted by the author), Låt den rätte komma in comes from director Tomas Alfredson, who's done a lot of TV in Sweden and a few films I've never come across in my festival travels. It's about a lonely boy who discovers that his new friend next-door ... is a vampire. Obviously there's more to it than that, but I'm certainly not about to spoil any of the surprises.

Anyway, I saw it about six months ago at Tribeca and fell crazy in love with it. I certainly wasn't the first genre hound to discover the film's drop-dead awesomeness, but I've been thrilled to see my colleagues fall for the film as well. One such friend is Rotten Tomatoes' Jenny Yamato (not a horror geek by any stretch of the imagination) who "absolutely loved" the movie. And then she told me how over at RT, they just debuted the awesome new red-band trailer for Let the Right One In, which you can check out by heading after the jump. Let us know what you think.
