    The full-length trailer for "Let Me In" dropped this weekend and it builds on the promise that was offered by the first teaser three weeks ago.

    Starring Chloe Moretz ("Kick-Ass") and Kodi Smit-McPhee's ("The Road"), the film is a remake of the much loved Swedish vampire film "Let the Right One In," which wowed just about everyone when it came out in 2008.

    The new trailer, which is comprised largely of footage from the first, looks to be as quiet, dark and delicate as the original film. Better still, it suggest that Moretz, Smit-McPhee, Elias Koteas and Richard Jenkins, was perfectly cast.

    Fans of "The Right One" were understandably nervous when Matt Reeves, the man behind the camera for the motion sickness-inducing "Cloverfield," was directing this remake.

    Reeves gamely took his licks, letting folks air their grievances and promising that he would show the source material the respect it deserves. There's no wevery reason to believe he's been true to his word.

    As relieved as we are by what little we've seen, we nagging question remains: Why on Earth did they change the title?
