When John Ajvide Lindqvist Let the Right One In was first published in 2004, it proved to be more than just a modern horror classic. It also delivered on the increasingly rare occasions when Hollywood manages to translate a book into a movie without ruining everything. The film version of Let the Right One In – adapted by Lindqvist and created by Andrew Hinderaker has been lauded as one of the best vampire films in ages, with critics and audiences alike praising its darkly poetic tone and deep character study. Though it has been nearly a decade since the original film was released, the film has only recently made its way to television. The show is a one-season-only production that’s set to air on Showtime this year. Showtime’s version of the story is adapted by John Ajvide Lindqvist and directed by Tomas Alfredson. In the first four episodes, the show has made some interesting changes to the original story. There are some surprises and twists that fans can look forward to during this new season as well.
Who is in the cast:
- Demián Bichir as Mark Kane.
- Madison Taylor Baez as Eleanor Kane.
- Anika Noni Rose as Naomi Cole.
- Grace Gummer as Claire Logan.
- Ian Foreman as Isaiah Cole.
- Kevin Carroll as Zeke Dawes.
- Nick Stahl as Matthew.
- Jacob Buster as Peter.
The Series debuted on the 9th of October 2022 and the next episode of the series will release on the 13th of November.
What is the Series about?
The teaser for the series reveals that the story takes place in the “early 1980s,” which means that it takes place roughly a decade after the events of the film. The show will follow “the strange friendship between a young boy and a girl who becomes a vampire.” In other words, it sounds as if they’re taking elements of Let the Right One In to create an entirely new story rather than following closely in time with what happened in the film and offering flashbacks to events that have already taken place in history. It also offers up some interesting questions about how closely this might tie into Tom Haverford’s secret vampire operation, if at all.
What makes this series interesting?
This is probably the most interesting thing about this new series – and the biggest question that fans are wondering about. While it’s not unheard of for a television show to take place in the same universe as a movie (think The Walking Dead), it’s still relatively rare to have a show that takes place after the events of a movie, but with different characters. It makes for an interesting way to expand on what was already explored in the films without getting into too much detail.
Why should I watch this series?
If you’re a fan of horror and dark vampire stories, then this series is a must-watch. It has quickly become one of the most iconic vampire series of all time, and its tone has been widely praised for maintaining the perfect amount of humor to balance the more somber moments. If you want to see what Hollywood and Sweden can do when coming together to create an extraordinary film, then don’t miss out on one of their greatest collaborations in years.
What is the targeted audience?
This series is ideal for anyone who loves dark horror stories and vampire tales. The original Let the Right One In is a beloved classic, and this Showtime series is sure to be just as well-liked by fans of the genre. Fans of strong female leads are also sure to love this new adaptation, as it’s full of complex characters who show both strength and weakness in equal measure. No matter what kind of fan you are, this series is sure to delight everyone from casual horror movie watchers to hardcore fans with its unique story and amazing characters.
