Horror film origins explained

Exclusive Media chair Guy East introduced “Let Me In” Monday by noting that it’s the first Hammer title to be released in 30 years. He said the studio invented the term “horror film” in the 1950s after a censor described an early title as “horrific.”

At Overture’s after-party Monday in Westwood’s Napa Valley Grille, helmer Matt Reeves admitted “Let Me In” is the “kind of movie I was scared to see” growing up.
