Låt den rätte komma (Let the Right One in)

I'll get this out of the way: I despise the way modern culture has treated vampires as of late; whether it be the  Twilight series or the seemingly never-ending list of shows on television, Hollywood has turned a once badass and awesome creation into a little thumb-sucking douche bag on par with Nickleback. I don't care if you're Edward Cullen, The Vampire Diaries, or Vampire Weekend; if you're involved with vampires, I hate you. Except everyone else seems to love them, and you pull out your hair just trying to figure out why. Then comes Låt den rätte komma in, or Let the Right One In. It is a Swedish film that was released two years ago, involves vampires, and is severely under-appreciated.
