    Beschreibung "The article argues that one crucial factor in the success of the Swedish vampire
    film Låt den rätte komma in/Let the Right One In (Alfredson, 2008) is that it
    seamlessly merges several apparently disparate genres to create a hybrid form that
    appeals to widely divergent audiences. A detailed analysis of the film demonstrates
    how it simultaneously draws on and departs from common themes and motifs of
    indigenous Swedish film as well as vampire film tradition, combining elements of
    the horror film, the coming-of-age story and the realistic socio-psychological drama
    to create a unique mix of the innovative and the familiar. A comparison of critical
    responses in Sweden with those in the English-speaking world sheds further light on
    genre-specific expectations and ways the film transcends them." (Information des Anbieters)
