To clear up any confusion, or for anyone who doesn't know, I normally live in Canada but I'm in London, England for the summer just working and exploring this great country.
Anywho, I had the day off on Wednesday and I was DYIINNNG to see a movie. I rent movies/go to the theatre at least once a week back home, so I was suffering from withdrawl after 2 weeks and no movies.
I read in i-D about a movie called Låt den rätte komma in , or "Let the right one in" and saw it was playing at one of the theatres here. I hadn't seen the trailer or anything, but it sounded interesting so I took the tube over and paid a ridiculous 13 pounds for admission to a movie I knew next to nothing about.
I've only just watched the trailer now, but I don't feel it does the film justice. This movie was unFRIKINbeleivable. SO, so beautiful. I don't want to label it a "vampire movie", but basically it's about a 12 year old boy who makes friends with a girl who lives off of blood.... i.e. a vampire. I've got to say that this is one of the best movies I've seen all year, it was just so visually beautiful and the characters are what made the movie so good. Of course, the sure fire way to ruin a good movie is to make a Hollywood remake, which is already "in the the works". So make sure you see the Swedish original before any other versions come out, you WON'T be dissapointed.

P.S. - This song is dangerous, it's been stuck in my head for litterally a solid week. Along with "Buisness time" and "Goodbye, leggy blonde". You have been warned.
P.P.S - These desserts are also dangerous. I've already tried two kinds and I'm looking for more. DON'T go to the website if you are hungry right now! You've been warned.... again.
