30 Days of Night Review
Synopsis:After an Alaskan town is plunged into darkness for a month, it is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires.
Josh Harnett (Black Dahlia, Pearl Harbor) crosses over to the dark side in this bone-chilling adaptation of the cult-hit graphic novel, brought to the screen in all its demonic glory 30 Days of Night (2007) directed by David Slade. In a small Alaskan town, thirty days of night is a natural phenomenon. Very few outsiders visit until a band of bloodthirsty, deathly pale vampires mark their arrival by savagely attacking sled dogs. But soon they find there are much more satisfying thirst-quenchers about human beings. One by one, the townspeople succumb to a living nightmare, but a small group survives - at least for now. The vampires use the dark to their advantage, and surviving this cold hell is a game of cat and mouse - and screams.
This vampire film is great because you feel the doom of each character and the ending is superb. The vampires were no chumps; they wanted blood, and they were visceral in every scene that they appeared in.
