Fantastic Fest has announced the opening night film will be the U.S. premiere of the highly anticipated Let Me In, directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and starring Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass), Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), Elias Koteas (Shutter Island) and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor).  The red carpet event will take place on Thursday, September 23 at The Paramount Theatre with director Matt Reeves and cast members in attendance.

“We are truly honored that Fantastic Fest has chosen to open their festival with the U.S. premiere of Let Me In.  It is incredibly exciting to be able to present the film to an audience who I know are just as passionate about John Ajvide Linqvist’s story as I am,” said director Matt Reeves.

“Fantastic Fest has been following the development of this movie with rabid interest and we couldn’t be more excited to share what Matt Reeves has up his sleeve in adapting this incredible story.  We anticipate that this will solidify his place as a visionary genre artist,” said Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.  And more than anything Fantastic Fest is ecstatic to see vampires doing what they do best – horrifying us with their bloodlust.  Fantastic Fest is also cooking up a gorgeous Mondo poster for Let Me In from artist Olly Moss.

Dubbed “The Geek Telluride” by showbiz bible Variety, Fantastic Fest is also known as the “Comic Con of film festivals.”  Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the United States, showcasing eight days of offbeat cinema from independents, international filmmakers and major Hollywood studios.
