LET ME IN: “Amputation” Scene Missing


I recently saw Let Me In – a few hours ago – and was looking forward to a particular scene from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s book Let the Right One In in the movie. I will not ruin the nature of the amputation scene from the book but it evolves the past and Abby (Chloe Moretz). The reason I believed this scene was in the film was because of the Let Me In movie trailer and this still from the film. Notice the rings on the hand holding down Abby’s head on a table and the old school nails (from the movie trailer).

One scene in Let Me In that actually speaks to this deleted scene was when Abby chides The Father (Richard Jenkins) in a non-little girl voice. After hearing that, I was really looking forward to seeing the amputation scene. Let Me In is a horror film after all. Horrible things are supposed to happen to people. Sadly, it is not present in the film and seems to have been deleted. Hopefully it will show up on DVD and Blu-ray. Did you read the book, see the movie trailer and the film, and notice the missing scene?
