Is blood really thicker than water?


Matt is a nice young man who lives with his mother. When he learns that his deadbeat older brother Deco is now a vampire, Matt will have to choose whether to help Deco or stake him before he hurts someone.

Let the Wrong One in is a horror comedy written and directed by Connor McMahon. It stars Karl Rice as Matt and Eoin Duffy (from The Dry and Deadly Cuts) as Deco.

I was hoping for more of a black comedy (which could have worked really well with Deco's backstory and an Irish sense of humour) and less slapstick, but I enjoyed this movie nonetheless. It's fun and silly and did make me laugh a couple of times. It was amusing to see
Anthony Head (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as a trainspotting taxi driver turned vampire hunter, and Mary Murray (from The Magdalen Sisters) was brilliant as his vampire former fiancÚ.

Let the Wrong One in is screening as part of the Irish Film Festival 2022's Australian season. It's full of gore and crazy special effects, for which it won Best Visual Effects at the Dublin International Film Festival 2022. It will appeal to fans of campy vampire films like Fearless Vampire Killers.

The Irish Film Festival 2022 will showcase 16 films, including 13 Australian Premieres, starting with a national season of 10 films screening in Palace Cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra. Let the Wrong One In will be on at the Palace Barracks Cinema in Brisbane on Saturday September 10th at 6.15pm.
