Dark and Humorous

This is easily the best movie I've seen over the past year, and the best vampire movie I've seen in recent memory. This movie snuck up on me, having not heard anything about it. Luckily, I happened to be at my local Art Institute and they were having a screening. Going into the movie, I had no expectation. Coming out, I was blown away. It takes place cira 1985 in Sweden. A shy boy that's picked on in school and seemingly has no friends, befriends the new girl to his neighborhood. She compliments his personality short-comings and encourages him to stand up for himself. They become inseparable, but the boy begins picking up on the clues that his best friend is "different". Other plot highlights revolve around the girl and her father’s attempts to keep her true identity secret, and the growing suspicions within the small Swedish community. Woven with dark humor, this superbly written and directed film touches on the theory of unconditional love, friendship, and the limits you would go to protect it. This is a definite” Must See”.

Just Plain Wonderful

This has to be the greatest movie of '08.Twilight can't even hold a candle to this masterpiece.People are saying this movie is a rip off of Twilight.This isn't so.The novel came out one year before Twilight and is 1000x times better than the pile of dog crap named Twilight.

Well done and not dubbed

The version for rent is not dubbed.
