The two shots were then combined to deceive the viewer into believing that it was one complete shot.
Faden noted the techniques used in another challenging shot important to Abby's character in which she begins bleeding when she enters Owen's apartment without invitation. Faden stated, "Normally in such a scene, the character would be shot on set, dressed in blood. But in this case, the timing of the bleeding was so dependent on the emotional beats of the scene that this technique wouldn't have allowed us enough control.
Then using techniques utilized in a prior Method Studios film, A Nightmare on Elm StreetFaden had the Houdini software track Moretz's shaking movements and render the gradual release of blood from her face. Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the film's soundtrack album.

The score was composed by Michael Giacchino. He mentioned, "I was always trying to say, 'let's take music out!
Composing the score to convey the correct emotion was also a challenge for Giacchino who said, " Or should this be sentimental?

Or should it be this? It was a weird balance because you're dealing with a dynamic that is quite questionable as far as what everyone's intentions are in the film. Let Me In received critical acclaim upon release. The consensus is that "similar to the original in all the right ways—but with enough changes to stand on its own—Let Me In is the rare Hollywood remake that doesn't add insult to inspiration.
Masterpiece is an overused word, but it's hard to think of another so powerful. Let Me In is the new standard for vampire movies. Not just a horror film, but the best American horror film in the last 20 years.
It is at once artful and unpretentious, more interested in intimacy and implication than in easy scares or slick effects. He stated, "Reeves understands what made the first film so eerie and effective, and here the same things work again.
Well, color me blushing" and "Prepare to be wowed. Some disputed Reeves' claims that he was not remaking the film but re-adapting the book, criticizing it for being too similar to the Swedish film.
Josh Tyler wrote "The movie he's made is absolutely a direct remake of the film, the two are so similar that it's almost impossible to differentiate between them. Rich noted that while there was plenty of content in the original novel that the Swedish film omitted, "Reeves hasn't really ferreted out anything new; on the contrary, there is actually less plot in Let Me In than in the Alfredson version.
What's missing is the alluring otherness of Let the Right One In. That film's brittle textures and haunted ambiance seemed in some strange way to have sprung organically from the nation in which it was set.

- Important Information
This remake, by contrast, smells of boardrooms and calculating machines. I like to go into these different places and explore all these emotions and figure out everything about a character. I do it, if I read it and respond to it. What did you guys learn from each other, by working together? Not to do it again. I think I learned more from Richard than he has from me. You give them your all in the scenes and, when they give back to you their all, it makes for really good emotion.
And, you put Vicks in your eyes, if you have to cry. Actually, I was on stage with a guy who did that and, once the crying scene was over, he cried for the entire play because it makes you tear.

He was crying for three acts. Chloe, can you talk about working with Kodi Smit-McPhee and establishing that relationship with your characters? Kodi is an amazing actor. There was that emotional connection, where he gave back to me what I gave to him.
And yet, even with that information in hand, we are surprised by how much we like her, and begin to understand the awkward, deeply emotional relationship that develops gradually between the two children, who find a bond in their mutual isolation and outcast status. Like Owen, we are aware of the violence that Abbey represents but against our own good judgment, and all that blood we will feel ourselves liking her and rooting for a good if not happy ending.
This review won't spoil the ending for you other than to say it is both expected and unexpected. A strong supporting cast rounds out the film: Dylan Minnette Saving Grace plays the despicable school yard bully who is ultimately revealed to be a victim in his own family; Richard Jenkins The Visitor, Burn After Reading adroitly plays the tortured older man who many believe to be Abbey's father. Best for viewers who enjoy thrillers. Unlike most slasher films, Let Me In conveyed strong, believable, emotion, pathos, and inevitable empathy for a character who many would not want to meet on a moonless night.
But be aware that it also had a lot of blood and gore.
