Let Me In centers on a 12 year old girl named Abby (Chloe Moretz), who moves next door to a bullied boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Owen is a social outcast who is viciously attacked at school and in his loneliness, forms a profound bond with his new neighbor. He can’t help noticing that Abby isn’t like anyone he’s ever met before. As a string of grisly murders occupy their town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is really a savage vampire.
Let Me In is scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2010
