Stupid Subtitles

“Let the Right One In,” a horror film that I’m dying to see, recently hit DVD.

It’s one of them foreign films, so it has those annoying subtitles — but it’s supposedly the best movie of 2008.

Anyway, horror movie fanatic Rob G. over at Icons of Fright noticed something interesting last night — the American subtitles on the DVD are actually dumbed down from the American theatrical release.

It’s fascinating stuff.

Check out the original Icons o’ Fright posting here, which tore through the movie Web last night after hitting Twitter.
