Let the Right One In TV series

Almost 15 years after the Swedish film adaptation of author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s adolescent vampire drama Let the Right One In captured the attention of the international film world, a TV adaptation may finally make its way to the small screen.

Showtime is the latest company to attempt an adaptation, giving a pilot order for what they’re calling an “elevated genre series.” Oscar nominated actor Demián Bichir (A Better Life) will produce the show and star as “Mark, a husband and father who had the perfect life until it was turned upside down by a mysterious creature who bit his daughter and then vanished into the night.”

Movie Remakes Compared

Over the past 20 years, there have been more remakes than Hollywood has seen before. Sometimes they turn out fantastic like The Departed (a remake of Infernal Affairs) or True Grit (a remake of the John Wayne western of the same name). But it seems more often there have been duds such as Len Wiseman’s Total Recall, Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes, Spike Lee’s Oldboy, and Jose Padilha’s RoboCop.

A new video compares shots from some of these original movies, over two dozen in total, to their more recent remakes. Movies like Let the Right One In, Funny Games, Sleuth, Solaris, The Fly, Cape Fear and more are included. Read More »
