It is his job to kill people and drain them of blood to keep Abby fed. When the "Father" calamitously bungles this, Abby has to go out and slake her thirst in the traditional manner. For me, the uncomfortable thing about Let Me In is that it amplified my reservation about the original: the vampire scariness was always in danger of being upstaged by the real-world scariness of bullying.

After a very brief prologue setting the Reagan-era, "Evil Empire" climate, the time frame retreats somewhat to introduce Owen, a slight, quiet-spoken year-old bully magnet sensitively played by Kodi Smit-McPhee and the remote Los Alamos apartment complex where he lives with his divorced, alcoholic mother. Abby encourages him to retaliate, and pledges to protect him. Abby's companion, Thomas, abducts a local teenager and drains his blood into a jug, only to accidentally spill all of the jug's contents.
Starving, Abby attacks a neighbor and drinks his blood , killing him and forcing Thomas to dispose of the body. On another night, Thomas hides in the back of another car, but is discovered. In the ensuing struggle, the car falls into a ditch and flips over.

I think it could be a really touching, haunting and terrifying film. I'm really excited about what it could be", he said. I'm so drawn to it for personal and not mercenary reasons I hope people give us a chance.
I said I read the book too and was completely taken with it and I was really intrigued how personal the story felt. I thought John Lindqvist had written this terrific story, and he also adapted it for the film I wrote Lindqvist and told him that it wasn't just that I was drawn to the story because it was a brilliant genre story—which it is—but also because of the personal aspect of it.
