Let The Right One In is a small Swedish movie that has just come out in New York and Los Angeles and lots of other cities soon.

It’s a hauntingly beautiful story about two 12 year olds that fall in love.

One of them happens to be a vampire.

Actually… the less said the better.

Please if you have a chance to go see Let The Right One In, I suggest you see it.

Well…thanks for entertaining me and I’ll be looking for more blogs.
