Inspired by the contemporary online urban legend known as the ” black-eyed kids,” Craig Moss’ (Bad Ass) latest film is best described as a gateway sci-fi shocker that harks back to the classic Amblin movies of the ’80s and ’90s.
Starring a talented cast of young actors including Makenzie Moss, Sadie Stanley, O’Neill Monahan, Siena Agudong and Makenzie Ziegler along with the master of horror himself, Tobin Bell, the film follows a spirited twelve-year-old girl and her best friend as they start investigating the mysterious disappearances of a number of teens in their small town. But they soon begin to realise that something much deeper is afoot, and that they might actually be up against forces they can’t even imagine.
Let Us In is available on Digital and On Demand now through Samuel Goldwyn Films, and SCREAM sat down with Craig Moss who revealed the reasons behind switching genres after the successful Bad Ass franchise and what it was about the original “black-eyed kids” urban legend that caught his attention.
