Paisley Film Society Screening(22nd October):Let The Right One In


Share Share

My hometown of Paisley which is 8 miles west of Glasgow has a new Film  society which seasonally shows a number of different movie genres for all decades and has announced the final screening for 2009.

The movie is going to be the cult movie LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (Låt den rätte komma in). This is regarded as one of the best horror/vampire movies in a very long time I was was angry I missed a chance to see it when it was released in UK on April 10 this year but not many people went to see it, possibly due to it been on a limited release and the fact its a foreign movie Sweden and that sadly puts off some people in a way when certain people go on abroad to get away from stress & worries but still demand to eat fried breakfast and find a place to watch the soaps! This movie is ideal movie with Halloween round the corner and if you dont think its any good rotten tomatoes website gave it 98%!!! (check here to see).

Here’s the plot (source IMDB)

Oskar, a bullied 12-year old, dreams of revenge. He falls in love with Eli, a peculiar girl. She can’t stand the sun or food and to come into a room she needs to be invited. Eli gives Oskar the strength to hit back but when he realizes that Eli needs to drink other people’s blood to live he’s faced with a choice. How much can love forgive? Let The Right One In is a story both violent and highly romantic, set in the Stockholm suburb of Blackeberg in 1982.

The Paisley Film Society this year holds there screenings at Reid Kerr College which is just north of  Paisley town centre, and they hold the screenings in The Abercorn Building lecture theatre which is the old brown building just next to the main enterance (take first left after main enterence into slip road, building on the right). But from 2010 the screenings will be moved to the Arts centre which is in the heart of the town centre (but ill post something at a later  date about that).

The screening will start at 7.00pm and space is very limited to around 100 spaces and the entry coast is £4.50 which is not bad when the local major cinema’s charge between £7-£8 per adult. The movie is rated 15 and runs for 1hour and 55minutes.

I’ve also posted some links to reviews of the movie as well as a trailer if you are in the Paisley/glasgow area why not pop along and say hello (if you do please mention you heard about the movie on this blog).
