31 Days Of Horror Weekend Round-Up: "Let The Right One In," "Cabin Fever," "The Beyond"

Let The Right One In
Oct. 1 – Let the Right One In (2008): Sometimes it’s better to be unsettling than scary. Horror movies have an unfortunate tendency to forgo mood in favor jumps scares and graphic violence, and for the most part, these simpler elements have a lessened effect and will wash off of viewers like water from a duck (or blood from a tarp). It’s easy to give a kid nightmares, but it’s a real challenge to crawl under the skin and leave you feeling covered in a thin film.

Sometimes even young love can be truly wicked.

“Let Me In” from director Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”), a remake of the Swedish hit “Let The Right One In”, opens this week with a teen vampire tale completely opposite from what’s become the norm on television and in film.

Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a 12-year-old boy in a remote snowbound town in New Mexico. He struggles with bullies at school and with his parent...

31 Days of Horror (Vampyr)
Greetings ghouls, goblins and basement dwellers!

Unless you’re in Southern California (113 degrees this week!) the weather is starting to cool off and the neighborhood trees are just starting to throw on their fall colors. The month of October means different things to all types of people: sports fans have football season hitting its stride, food-blog types have new vegetables to shill, kids have a lot of school to attend--which kind of sucks for them. For me the month of October means watching an unhealthy amount of horror movies.

For the past two years, I’ve watched a horror movie I had...

This weekend, moviegoers will finally get to see the much-hyped and surprisingly well-reviewed film “Let Me In” directed by “Cloverfield” director Matt Reeves. The marketing for the film has been relentless over the past few weeks and consensus from fans and critics alike is that it is one of the best horror movies to come out in years.

The novel from which the movie was adapted is called “Let the Right One In” by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist and was adapted into a Swedish film in 2008. When the film finally made its way to the U.S. it was one of the best reviewed and most talked a...
