Here's the first clip from Let Me In, Matt Reeves' remake of the brilliant Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In. And this scene looks very promising for fans of the original (which we wholeheartedly are).

We'll talk about why this scene is promising below, but if you haven't seen the original this will be a spoiler, so proceed at your own risk.

Okay, so if you're familiar with Let the Right One In you'll know this scene isn't about a vampire killing a human, it's about a vampire's human henchman killing a human to bring to the vampire. Why we love this is because it feels authentic, like if we had to go out and kill someone, this is how it might play out: long, violent, awkward and somewhat bumbling, driven by a crazy burst of adrenaline at the end as we, somewhat panicked, tried to get away.

In other words, it captures the feeling of the first film perfectly. If they can make the rest of the movie match as well as this does, this could be one of the best vampire films since Near Dark.
