Let The Wrong One In

Friday, March 4 • 9:45 PM

When Matt's (Karl Rice) estranged older brother Deco (Eoin Duffy) turns up looking worse for wear one morning, Matt assumes he's just on another bender. But Deco's newly grown fangs leave little doubt as to what's happening. Turns out he's fallen victim to a clutch of vampires terrorizing Dublin, posing as a group of hard-partying bachelorettes out on the prowl. As a brand-new vampire, Deco needs his brother's help to survive… but he also kind of wants to eat him. LET THE WRONG ONE IN is a wonderfully silly horror comedy, full of ridiculously rude jokes and great visual gags. Taking full advantage of its location in Dublin, the film is filled with local color, great accents and regional humor. Director Conor McMahon (DEAD MEAT, FROM THE DARK, STITCHES) has assembled a fantastic cast of comedic actors, including British actor Anthony Head, who brings to the table his years of experience playing vampire slayer Rupert Giles on BUFFY, as a cab driver-turned-slayer intent on stopping his undead fiancée from killing the entire city. You can't ask for much more from a fun, irreverent take on the traditional vampire tale. Fans of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and last year's CIFF selection BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL, rejoice!
