The original film was huge overseas when it was released. I have a feeling that Let Me In
was made to ride the wave of fame the other film received, rather than an attempt at a legitimate adaptation. However, the author of the book (who wrote the screenplay for the original film) seems grateful that the American film was made, so I guess that's what really matters.
