Abstract
Darren Elliot-Smith’s ‘Castrating the Queer Vampire’ investigates the queer potentialities of both the original novel of Let The Right One In (2004) by John Lindqvist and the subsequent adaptations, tracing the ways in which the texts navigate queer identities based on sexuality (the novel and the Swedish film 2008) and gender (the 2008 film).
