Trivia: Let the Right One In

  • Ascended Fanon: In the novel, Eli and Håkan's relationship is fairly well spelled out, but in the original Swedish film, their past is left ambiguous, leading those who hadn't read the book to speculate that Håkan was once a boy like Oskar whom Eli had seduced. The US adaptation plays this theory straight, directly implying that it was what indeed happened.

  • Jossed: The US remake keeps the vague comment of "I'm not a girl" but throws out the scene where the castration scar was shown (thereby implying that the phrase simply means she is not a girl, but a vampire girl). A deleted scene shows Abby's vampirization and how she was a girl at the moment of her turning.
