Trailer Watch: Let the Right One In red band trailer

Although Let the Right One In has been praised to high heaven, I haven’t really been paying a whole lot of attention to it — for the simple and entirely subjective reason that I find vampires (as straight genre, as metaphor, as anything) horribly uninteresting. The last vampire story I actually enjoyed was the Preacher one-shot, Cassidy: Blood and Whiskey, and that was largely because it mercilessly ridiculed that whole angsty Anne Rice-style vampire genre.

Anyway, while this movie does look very well-done from a technical standpoint, I still can’t muster up any enthusiasm about it, but I thought some of you guys might think differently. An earlier domestic trailer can be found over at Apple. The film hits limited release stateside on October 24th.

    Well, you must’ve at least loved the Dracula musical from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

    I feel the same way. That’s why I can’t bring myself to watch Trueblood,

    I took note of it from the very fact that a vampire movie was praised so highly.

    Looks purdy, in its own bleak way…not sure if I can muster enough interest to actually find and watch it. I don’t get the same deargodno impulse I got from watching the trailer for Twilight.

    I guess you could say I’m a vampire fan…I liked Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the first Blade movie, and I’m currently regularly watching true blood.

    There is one thing above all it seems I really enjoy about vampire movies is that lately writers seems to be trying really hard [and sometimes suceeding] to redefine the vampire, to innovate it so its not the same old story.

    True Blood has done that, This movie seems like it will do it.
