Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new friendship develops when Eli — a pale, serious young girl who only comes out at night — moves in next door to lonely, 12-year-old Oskar. Coinciding with her arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. Eli must continue to relocate in order to stay alive, but when Oskar faces his darkest hour, she returns to defend him the only way she can...

Review:

"In the basest of terms, a horror flick. But it's also a spectacularly moving and elegant movie, and to dismiss it into genre-hood, to mentally stuff it into the horror pigeonhole, is to overlook a remarkable film." Washington Post

Review:

"It's one of the great horror films of recent years — and a welcome antidote to the in-your-face sonic assaults that all too often pass for genre fare." Portland Oregonian

Review:

"The best fairy tales always have so much darkness in them. That's why they resonate so deeply. This is a magnificent film." Film Threat

Review:

"The young actors are powerful in draining roles. We care for them more than they care for themselves. Alfredson's palette is so drained of warm colors that even fresh blood is black." Roger Ebert

Review:

"It's a sweetly queasy film that suggests the spirit that sustains us, the demons we hide from the world, and the monsters that prey upon us in the dark might all be variations on the same beast." The Onion AV Club

Michelle Burnett, August 24, 2009 (view all comments by Michelle Burnett)
Poignant, beautiful, haunting, gory, and terrifying are not words often used together to describe the same story but this perfectly describes Let the Right On End. Lately our cultural landscape has been inundated with all things vampire with mixed results. The story of a shy young boy who is being bullied at school and doesn’t appear to have many friends and the new girl in the neighborhood that turns out to be a bloodthirsty vampire is by far a more complex & interesting duo than the many current romantic human/vampire couplings getting all of the attention. Favorite scene in the movie: What really does happen when a vampire enters you home uninvited?
