Over the weekend we were sent a bizarre postcard from Los Alamos, New Mexico from someone young (a 12-year old perhaps?) with a message that appears to be encoded in morse code. Putting two and two together we realized that Los Alamos is the city that Matt Reeves upcoming remake, Let Me in, is set. Take a look at the post card images below...
So what the heck does this thing say?
After some research, we found that The Los Angeles Times also received their own postcard with the exact same morse code message. They claim to have translated the message as:
"I must be gone and live, or stay and die."
While the line comes from the play Romeo and Juliet, the site discovered it was also from the original 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One in, which Let Me in, which stars Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee, is being remade from. The site also noticed that the postcard came from the Otowi Station Science Museum in Los Alamos, New Mexico, which is where they shot Let Me in.
This isn't the first piece of viral marketing to come forth from this film. Just last month, "someone" also sent us a bloody evidence bag, which contained an oil funnel caked with blood. The film doesn't hit theaters for a few more months, opening on October 1, so don't be surprised to see more from this viral campaign as we near closer to this film's release.
