Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: Oskar. While you can justify Eli killing people because she needs human blood for sustenance, he is just okay with her killing people, including [[spoiler: his bullies]], just because he doesn't have friends.


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Conny. Despite being a massive JerkAss, we learn that his brother Jimmy is an AxCrazy BigBrotherBully. He and his friends started to have second thoughts about Jimmy [[spoiler: trying to drown Oskar]], [[FaceHeelDoorSlam but we're supposed to cheer for Eli when she]] [[spoiler: brutally kills them]] when the only one who really deserved it was Jimmy.

** Also, Eli assures Oskar that she didn't steal money from people she's killed. She claims people gave it to her. How a pretty but androgynous 12-year old waif gets money from strangers is not explained. [[FalseReassurance It was probably charity]]. [[NightmareFuel Right? RIGHT?!]] In the book, Håkan is a pedophile and that explains his attraction and devotion to Eli. So, the theme is still subversion to darkness or vices, but in a different way. Håkan represents the darkness associated with the fact of who Eli has to be to survive, while Oskar represents the light. Eli is more than fine with stringing Håkan along to get what she needs, and Håkan is a much more morally repugnant figure with less to pity than portrayed in the movie.

Added DiffLines:

* TransEqualsGay: [[spoiler: Considering Eli and Oskar's relationship a QueerRomance is contingent on accepting this trope's claim as well. Granted, claiming that Eli is "trans" is also highly dubious at best, since he didn't exactly ''choose'' to be castrated and there may be other reasons why he lives as a female.]]

** ''Let Me In'' casts ChloeMoretz as the vampire girl who's steadily soaked in her own blood if not invited properly. Chloe would later be cast as ''{{Film/Carrie}}''.

* ViewersAreMorons: ''Let Me In'' goes out of its way to explain certain things that were left subtle in the Swedish film. Characters explain their motivations out loud and ambiguities are made explicitly clear.
** The US DVD and Blu-Ray release of the original film features [[http://iconsoffright.com/news/2009/03/let_the_wrong_subtitles_in_to.html significantly simplified and dumbed-down subtitles]], losing a lot of ironic humor and subtle character development to get the subtitles which accompanied the US theatrical release, you have to look for a DVD copy that says "Subtitles: English (Theatrical)" (or just import the UK disc).
