Chloe Grace Moretz
is only 13 years old but she's already starred in some of this year's biggest movies -- playing some very dark roles.

After getting some attention and worthy praise for playing the controversial mini-assassin Hit-Girl in 'Kick-Ass,' Moretz gets her vampire on in this week's 'Let Me In,' a remake of a Swedish film based on the novel 'Let the Right One In.'

Moretz plays Abby, a 300-year-old vampire in the body of a 12-year-old girl who befriends a young loner boy in snowy New Mexico. Moviefone talked to Moretz about her penchant for dark roles, how 'Let Me In' compares to 'Twilight' and her future project with Martin Scorsese.

'Let Me In' premieres Oct. 1.

Have you seen 'Let the Right One In,' the original Swedish movie 'Let Me In' is based on?

No, I still haven't seen it, for a couple of reasons, but mainly my mom didn't allow me to watch it because it's R-rated. Yeah, but also, my brother, who's my acting coach, Trevor Moretz,, didn't want me to watch it because he wanted "more of a natural and raw kind of feel towards Abby." I didn't just copy a character.

Were you actually walking in snow without shoes on?

Yes! I was. (laughs)

How was that?

That was pretty insane. It got really cold at times, but everyone was looking out for me, so they had things to heat my feet up immediately.
