It was only a matter of time before a remake of a truly special film was developed for an American version. Let the Right One is a Swedish vampire film released in 2008 that tells a story of a bullied 12-year old boy who befriends a female vampire child in a suburb of Stockhlom.

The story is mainly focused on the relationship that forms between two pre-teens as opposed to a more lustful violence of vampire lore.

Based on the novel of the same name by John Ajvide Lindqvist (who also wrote the screenplay) and starring then 11-year-olds Kåre Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson; two child actors who were chosen after a year long search.

Check out the props(2:48) Slum Dog Millionaire director Danny Boyle gives to the film followed by the original trailer.

The film received widespread international critical acclaim and won numerous International and American film awards. Rotten Tomatoes hooked it up with a 97%"fresh" rating. If you haven't seen the Swedish version, see it now on Netflix or DVD.

The American version titled Let Me In will be released October 1 and stars Chloe Moretz of Kick Ass fame.
