Meanwhile the director of Let Me In, Matt Reeves, took part in a special panel discussion at the SXSW Festival in the US. The 'Directing the Dead' panel also included filmmakers Neil Marshall (The Descent), Robert Rodriguez (Planet Terror), Ti West (The House Of The Devil) and Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland). Reeves discussed the process of making Let Me In and revealed that he consulted director Steven Spielberg (Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, Poltergeist) about how to work with children.
