I have seen Let the Right One In and it was very good. I think remakes of good foreign movies are are what Hollywood are banking on right now and we should see many more this year. I picked the remake Let Me In up the other day for cheaps on ebay But I have not watched it yet, but from what I have heard it is very good and it is, for me at least the return of Hammer Horror, so I have high hopes

Well MATT, I think you don't know this but the Swedish movie and the American one too are made of the same novel. So that answers your question. Actually this novel is the base for both the movies. The Swedish novel was titled Let the right one in just as the movie but the English movie is titled Let me in....anyways both the movies are sure to be good..

I guess nobody can be original. I've seen several movies that have similar exactly the same story line. There was one Hindi movie starring Shah Rukh Khan (I can't remember the title) which has the exact story line as the movie Nick of Time which starred Johnny Depp. And there are others too. Even Kirk Cameron's Avatar is said to be a rip-off of another Japanese anime.

I haven't watched the American version, but lots of people said that the American version is respectably good, since lots of remakes doesn't do the original version justice (see : all Japanese horror remakes, well maybe except The Ring). They also do the American version of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo directed by David Fincher, it supposed to come out later this year. Let's hope this will be good.

There are several movies that are quite similar. I believe the Oscar winner "The Departed" was actually based from a Hong Kong movie called "Infernal Affairs". There are horror movies in the US that were based from Asian horror films like The Ring but it has many differences unlike The Departed and Infernal Affairs. I think directors want to re-tell a certain story in their own way?
