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. 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 really 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.
