Right One

Like most of humanity, I'm bored by vampires.  Yet Let The Right One In is so elegant and artful it's worth diving into the genre once more. It's probably the most quiet vampire movie ever made. And one of the best. If you have a chance, check it out. Director Tomas Alfredson maintains an atmosphere of tension in the penultimate scene that rivals Michael Haneke's best work. Alfredson has a better sense of humor . . .

Bonus points for naming the movie after a Morrissey b-side.
