  2. Hi Johnny, thank you for your continued excellent reviews and work
    I am usually not a fan of the horror genre, however the Swedish film Let The Right One In has been grabbing my attention lately, and I am on the whole very impressed with the positive review it has been receiving lately.
    Do you think, as someone whose only experience of the said genre is The Ring starring Naomi Watts will be impressed by the Swedish film?
    Keep up the good work mate.

  3. Hi Sajid, thanks for dropping by and for your appreciation.

    I do think that if you enjoy horror films - and good films in general - you would enjoy LTWOI.

    It is an excellent and very creepy film. Part of the atmosphere of the film probably comes from the Swedish settting in the 1980's, the American remake will struggle to match this.

    I'd also recommend taking a look at Ringu (1998), the Japanese original, which if you watch it late at night can massively creep you out.

  4. Thanks for the advice Johnny, I'll definitely have a look at Ringu.
    I have only recently started to enjoy Movies, so personalised advice from somebody as knowledgeable as yourself is so much better than friends who suggest I should waste 2 hours of my life watching Paul Blart:Mall Cop!!!!
