A 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young girl whose appearance in town suspiciously coincides with a horrifying series of murders in director Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the book by author John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the screenplay. Oskar is a young boy who can't seem to shake off the local bullies, but all of that begins to change when a new neighbor moves in next door. After striking up an innocent friendship with his eccentric next-door neighbor, Oskar realizes that she is the vampire responsible for the recent rash of deaths around town. Despite the danger, however, Oskar's friendship with the girl ultimately takes precedence over his fear of her. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

All I can say is WOW! I loved this movie. The pacing isn't what you would expect from Hollywood, so it's a lil slow for most American viewers. But this movie was one of my favorite of 2008. So unconventional, cute, touching, a little scary, and a little campy all at the same time.

Me likes!!

This is 'first love' and 'coming of age' mixed with 'interview with a vampire'. Roughly, a 12-yo boy, picked on by bullies at school, meets a girl who just moved in next door - and eventually figures out that she's a vampire. I won't place spoilers, but the story is remarkably good, the acting is at least as good, and it's well worth an evening. I watched in Swedish with English subtitles - can't comment on the English dub or English Narrative subtitles.

Craig's Best of 2008.
These were on my best of 2008 list; year featured lots of good films even if few clear masterpieces. These are all the ones available on DVD; will add as more arrive.
