EXCLUSIVE: Richard Jenkins Talks ‘Let Me In’

Matt Reeves took on the challenge of remaking Let the Right One In, one of the most revered vampire thrillers seen in the last decade, and succeeded in creating something that wasn't just a lame carbon copy of the original. Let Me In, which was released this past October, actually stands on its own as a mercifully adept horror film about three lonely people coming to terms with their doomed fate. One of the things that separates Let Me In from other recent vampire outings is that it has crafted characters unique to the genre, and Matt Reeves cast an outstanding ensemble to bring these lost souls to life.

In the film, Richard Jenkins plays ten-year-old vampire Abby's (Chloe Moretz) protector, a Renfield-like servant who has grown tired and weary of his place at her side. It's an understated performance wrought full of pathos. Richard Jenkins doesn't say much, but he conveys the weight of his world with just one off look as it comes crashing down around him. Its one of the best performances in recent horror history, and the man brings a great deal of empathy to the overall dramatic arc of the story.
