Buy it... if you are curious to hear Michael Giacchino's first entry in the horror genre, a very subtle exercise in quiet dissonance, long sequences of near silence, and fleeting expressions of troubled romance.

Avoid it... if you hoped for Giacchino to emulate the tender and alluring romantic tone that highlighted Johan Soderqvist's score for the original 2008 Swedish variation of this same concept.

Let Me In: (Michael Giacchino) Author John Ajvide Lindqvist has correctly stated, "I might just be the luckiest writer alive. To have not only one, but two excellent versions of my debut novel done for the screen feels unreal." He adapted that story for the screenplay of the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In, which earned widespread international acclaim and led to a variety of independent awards for its excellence. Director Matt Reeves adapted the story once again for a 2010 American remake, Let Me In, though he vigorously claimed that he was more concerned with re-telling the original story from the book with an American viewpoint rather than remaking the 2008 production. Critics responded positively to Reeves' endeavor, though they noted that the 2010 film was indeed more of a remake of the 2008 version, which irritated some. Unfortunately, the American release did not live up to performance expectations, failing to ride the large current wave of vampire concept popularity and thus failing, more importantly, to even recoup its $20 million budget during its worldwide tenure in theatres. The rather unremarkable story is one that once again combines youthful romance and the vampire genre, telling of a pre-teen boy who is a bullied loner and becomes enamored with the (supposedly) equal aged girl who moves in to his apartment complex. She, of course, is the vampire, and her father is in fact another guardian she met long ago who fell in love with her and murders people to supply her with blood. A detective traces the killings back to them, but not before another cycle in the vampire's life begins. One of the commonly discussed differences between Let Me In and Let the Right One In is the emphasis on the vampire element in the 2010 American version, as opposed to the 2008 Swedish film's focus on the sensitivity of the interaction between the children. That distinction, with surprising distinction, really carries over into the two disparate scores for the films.
