More hectic and violent than its Swedish inspiration, and consequently far less interesting, Let Me In still contains a few memorable elements: The use of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” as a ubiquitous radio motif is fun, and Elias Koteas steadily underplays his role as a suspicious New Mexico cop with a great mustache. Koteas is so good, in fact, that when his character finally tracks down the central vampire tyke and her enabling boy toy, you’ll find yourself rooting for him to dispose of these murderous little Edward Gorey creeps and go listen to some Bowie.
