A Special Day for Being Afraid

Earlier this week I read a review at Pajiba by John Williams (you might know him from such excellent blogs as A Special Way of Being Afraid) and I am super worked-up to see the new Swedish vampire movie/love story Let the Right One In. Here's the trailer:

You can tell from these short clips how unusual and visually stunning the movie is. Scandinavian people are always doing cool and freaky stuff. Scandinavian people understand the power of empty space and color and lines.

While we're at it, another extremely scary, beautifully-made film that gave me nightmares a few nights in a row is The Orphanage. Get it on Netflix if you haven't seen it.

Happy Halloween.
