Let the Right One In is based on the novel of the same name by John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the screenplay for the film. Alfredson won the Göteborg International Film Festival’s Nordic Film Prize as director of Let the Right One In on the grounds that he “succeeds to transform a vampire movie to a truly original, touching, amusing and heart-warming story about friendship and marginalisation”. In awarding the film the “Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature”, the top award at the Tribeca Film Festival, the jury commented that the film was a “mesmerizing exploration of loneliness and alienation through masterful reexamination of the vampire myth”. The film also won the Méliès d’Argent (Silver Méliès) at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) and went on to win the Méliès d’Or (Golden Méliès) for the “Best European Fantastic Feature Film”, awarded by the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation of which NIFFF is a part.Other awards include the first Rotten Tomatoes Critical Consensus Award at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
The Let the Right One In DVD will be presented in widescreen, along with a Swedish Dolby Digital soundtrack. An English dub will also be available. Extras will include deleted scenes, a behind the scenes featurette, and a poster gallery.
