A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

017 Let the Right One In by Tomas Alfredson
With an intro courtesy of the late Jim Henson, we embark to discuss the superb Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In by Tomas Alfredson, released in 2008. Both Matt and Mark agree this is the best vampire film of the past 25 years, and like all great films reviewed on our podcast, we set about nitpicking the details. Throw your Twilight boxed set into the trash, sell your Blade action figures on eBay, take down your Corey Haim/Feldmen Lost Boys pinups, and forget about the sub-par (but worthy remake) Let Me In, because Let the Right One is all you need for blood-sucking goodness. Enjoy!
