Saturday Night Movie

Most everyone that knows me, knows that my time has been consumed by reading and talking about vampires. Thanks to the ever so addicting Twilight saga, and The Historian, I've been on a quest to read, and watch anything related to vampires. Oh yes, and I can't forget the HBO series, True Blood

Just in case you wanted to know, and just because I feel like bragging, I've already bought my ticket for the midnight showing of Twilight on Nov.20.

But that's not what this post is about. Well sort of. Tonight I'll be watching a Swedish film, "Let the Right One in" (watch trailer below). A very quick synopsis from Wikipedia: "Oskar is a 12-year-old-boy who is being bullied at school. He befriends a mysterious girl, Eli, who moves in next door with her father HÃ¥kan. In the course of the film you find out all is not what it seems. Eli is really a vampire and her "father" supplies her with fresh blood by murdering young boys. As Oskar gradually begins to understand who Eli really is, the bond between them grows stronger. Eli teaches him to stand up to his bullies and Oskar grows increasingly fond of her."

Like I said, that was a very quick synopsis. I will most definitely offer a more in depth look into the film tomorrow, after I've seen the film. It's dark, gloomy, and wet here in San Francisco. The perfect weather for a movie like this! Check out the trailer below to see what I'm talking about! (Just click the image to start the trailer)

I've been waiting to see this movie. It finally came out down here on Friday. We were planning on going yesterday, but I was feeling like crap. We are hoping to go Tuesday since I'll have the holiday off. Was it good? I have only been hearing good things about it.

Hey Mama, the previews look very bloody, but good, I will ask Ms. Julia if she is interested in seeing it with me since The Little Man is Soooooo anti-hollywood. Love You
