If you ask me, the prolific John Tiffany and the prolific Steven Hoggett are responsible for the best play ever presented about the Iraq War. So when I learned they were bringing Let the Right One In to the always adventurous St. Ann's, I figured it would be another must.
At Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the US but better known to its loyal fans as an epic week-long geekout, a collision of anarchic revelry, tongue-in-cheek irony, and sincere talent is the right way to kick things off.
American remakes of foreign films? That would be a 'no' vote. Having said that, I can heartily recommend Let Me In, the moody, touching American remake of the Swedish vampire film, Let the Right One In, from 2008.
