an outcast kid is picked on in school and ignored at home. he befriend's the new neighbor girl who just moved in who happens to be a child of the night...aka a vampire.
just watch the original. this was almost frame for frame just in english and somehow waaaaaay less subtle. i also found this one kind of boring and i didn't think that about the original. i also really, really liked the original so i might have gone into this one a little biased. we americans can't redo foreign films. we don't have the finesse.
p.s. sweden is a way better choice than new mexico for a vampire movie set in snow.
