Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Calling to mind the work of Anne Rice and Stephen King, atmospheric adaptation of Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist's bestseller is well directed by his countryman Tomas Alfredson.
Fresh: Sinister but gorgeous and compelling.
Fresh: Lovelier than most bloodsucker flicks, but it doesn't quite transcend its well-chewed genre.
Fresh: A remarkably moving horror tale, about a pale, bullied twelve-year-old boy (Kare Hedebrant) and his first love (Lina Leandersson), who happens to be a vampire.
overshadowed by twilight
Released around the same time as the blockbuster vampire movie, Twilight, it probably didn't get all the credit it deserved, or the viewership. This is a great foreign movie, a great movie period!
Another one of those perfect movies!
It's hard to find a good vampire movie these days, but here is one that is set in modern times that isn't filled with stereotypical teenagers and cheesy special effects! The script is beautifully written, the actors are amazingly real, and the cinematography is a true work of art, without being pretentious. I've been advised to read the book, as somethings are explained a bit more, but if i never do, I'll still keep this movie in my top five of all time. This is also maybe the greatest love story ever!
very good movie
