Sitges 2008: LET THE RIGHT ONE IN Wins Golden Melies Award
And the acclaim just keeps rolling in for Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In ...
Every year each of the affiliated festivals of the European Federation of Fantastic Film Festivals - there are about twenty in all - award what is known as the Silver Melies Award to the best European genre film to take part in each of their festivals. Those silver award winning films, in turn, become eligible to win a Golden Melies Award as the Best European Genre Film of the year. This year's award ceremony has just wrapped up here in Sitges and out of a very strong field that included the likes of The Orphanage, Frontiere[s], King of the Hill, Inside, The Substitute and more, Let The Right One In has been selected as this year's winner. Yes, it really is that good.
The film will be rolling out in US theatres in the very near future, check out the American trailer below the break.
