The 100 Best Movies Of The Complex Decade

49. Let The Right One In (2008)

Director: Tomas Alfredson
Stars: Kare Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar, Henrik Dahl

Say your girl loves vampires, but her measuring sticks for great bloodsucker characters are Edward Cullen and Bill Compton—first off, we feel your pain. Secondly, it sounds like she's ready for the “Let The Right One In Test.”

Antithetical to Twilight and True Blood in every way, Swedish director Tomas Alfredson's slow-burning undead drama handles budding love better than Bella/Edward (even though, yes, the suitors are a little boy and an equally little girl vamp) and is scarier in its quietest moments than True Blood's Eric Northman ever is at his most diabolical. Show Let The Right One In to wifey and see if she's willing to admit its superiority; if not, try not to hide your disappointment beneath a Taylor Lautner shirt.
