LET THE WRONG ONE IN (2021) Reviews and overview of vampire comedy



Let the Wrong One In is a 2021 Irish comedy horror film in which a young supermarket worker discovers his older brother is a vampire; now he has to choose whether to help him or slay him.

Directed by Conor McMahon (From the Dark; Stitches; The Disturbed; Dead Meat). Co-produced by Trisha Flood, Julianne Forde, Michael Lavelle, Ivan McMahon (line producer) and Ruth Treacy.

The Workshed Films-Tailored Films co-production stars Karl Rice, Eoin Duffy, Anthony Head, Hilda Fay and Lisa Haskins.


Let the Wrong One In winds up feeling like a story that was written around a bunch of silly gags and not the other way around. Granted, not every film has to be serious or have a purpose but I felt like there was a good story buried in there somewhere. Just enough of those moments crept in that made me see what the film could have been, but ultimately, like Deco, they stayed in the shadows.” Grimoire of Horror

Let The Wrong One In yucks it up harder than Goofy on laughing gas and attempts an overarching metaphor about how Deco’s habits were bleeding everyone he loves dry years before Shelia passed her disease. It’s a far cry from poignant and prolific, but that’s fine because everyone’s committed to Conor McMahon’s undead playfulness no matter how monumentally silly.” What To Watch
