Michael Giacchino is one of the best composers working today. Anyone who has heard his melodies for "Lost" or his Pixar efforts RATATOUILLE, THE INCREDIBLES and UP can testify to that (his STAR TREK score isn't too shabby either). So it's a relief to anyone who was slightly unnerved by the music in the LET ME IN trailer to know that Giacchino has been tapped to provide tunes for the film.
Giacchino has worked with LET ME IN director Matt Reeves before, albeit briefly, on CLOVERFIELD, which has a pretty sweet Giacchino track called "Roar" playing over the end credits (listen to it below). They both obviously share a J.J. Abrams connection as well. Giacchino is also currently in line to score the live-action Pixar film JOHN CARTER OF MARS.
Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl from Kick-Ass) stars as Abby, a secretive 12-year old girl, who moves next door to Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road). Owen is a social outcast who is viciously bullied at school and in his loneliness, forms a profound bond with his new neighbour. Owen canít help noticing that Abby is like no one he has ever met before. As a string of grisly murders occupy the town, Owen has to confront the reality that this seemingly innocent girl is really a savage vampire.
Let Me In, a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and produced by legendary British horror brand Hammer Films, is an astonishing coming-of-age story between a young girl and an alienated young boy unlike any other you have seen. Based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma (Let The Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and the highly-acclaimed film of the same name, Let Me In takes audiences straight to the troubled heart of adolescent longing and loneliness.
LET ME IN comes out on OCTOBER 1st.
