Original director is pissed at vampire remake

Let The Right One In (original title Låt Den Rätte Komma In), a Swedish vampire film winner of every award it’s been nominated for (for now at least), is uselessly being remade in English by Cloverfield director Matt Reeves and original director Tomas Alfredson is understandably unhappy.

“Remakes should be made of movies that aren’t very good, that gives you the chance to fix whatever has gone wrong,” Alfredson tells Moviezine. “I’m very proud of my movie and think it’s great, but the Americans might be of an other opinion. The saddest thing for me would be to see that beautiful story made into something mainstream.” … “I don’t like to whine, but of course – if you’d spent years on painting a picture, you’d hate to hear buzz about a copy even before your vernissage!”

Hear hear Tomas Alfredson, I couldn’t agree more. See the original film’s trailer here.

  1. amazing movie. too bad the americans are not able to read the subtitles.
    hope they will not ruin this movie like they’vo done with Infernal Affaires, Into the mirror, Rec…
    and I’ve heard that spielberg and will smith want to remake oldboy… it seems that some great no-american movies have the bad luck to end up in shitty american remakes
