Let The Right One In - directed by Tomas Alfredson

Take a vampire story about a boy and a girl and film it like Rosemary's Baby, you'd then have Let The Right One In. Well, except that here only the females have strong characters as all the males are either drunk, emasculated, or dead. And the boy has to somehow grow up in that world, well-filmed or not.

Moving slowly through a Swedish winter, LTROI occasions upon violence and shows it only briefly or absurdly. Vampire stories typically hinge on the attraction of power, and this film mocks that to some degree. Instead of speeding through the gore, LTROI would probably have been better served to show those scenes at a similar if not slower pace than the film, switching rapidly between angles and perspectives to draw attention.
