New Release: Let Me In DVD and Blu-ray

Let Me In movie sceneVampire thriller Let Me In arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 1, 2011, with an exclusive comic book and other special features from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

The movie stars The Road‘s Kodi Smit-McPhee as a bullied boy who befriends a strange girl (Kick Ass‘ Chloe Moretz) who has just moved into his apartment building with an older man. Turns out that the girl is an old vampire, and the two build a bond. Richard Jenkins, Oscar-nominated actor for The Visitor, plays the girl’s guardian, Cara Buono (TV’s Mad Men) is the boy mother and Elias Koteas (Shutter Island) a policeman investigating recent murders in their town.

The independent film produced by Overture Films is based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma In (Let the Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the acclaimed foreign movie of the same name.

Despite good reviews from critics, Let Me In grossed only $12 million in theaters, making it poised to become a sleeper hit on DVD and Blu-ray.

The DVD was priced at $29.98, with the Blu-ray at $39.99.

Both came packed with these special features:

  • commentary with director Matt Reeves
  • featurette “From the Inside” A Look at the Making of Let Me In
  • “The Art of Special Effects”
  • unrated deleted scenes
  • and featurette “Car Crash Sequence Step-By-Step” about the film’s crash.

The Blu-ray also has:

  • “Dissecting Let Me In
  • and a downloadable digital copy of the movie.

Plus, both the DVD and Blu-ray are packaged with a Let Me In comic book with an exclusive cover designed by award-winning comic book artist Sean Phillips. A graphic novel is planned for release in 2011.
