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.

  1. where to begin? First, I think it is now axiomatic that it is not possible to make a good vampire movie. Why? Come close and I’ll tell you. Let me whisper it in your ear. “Because vampires are an utterly self-conscious fictional creature, at all times alleging to be cool and groovy whereas zombies, for example, never are. This self-conscious coolness always comes across as either smarminess (lounge lizard type vampire) or stupidity. Or, most frequently, the vampire is both smarmy and stupid, as in Interview With The Vampire.

    The requirement that vampires be cool is what relegates them to the garbage can of fiction: i.e. nerd literature. If you want to write an interesting vampire story, there are many problems to overcome. One is the nuts and bolts of vampirism, which ordinarily requires a slack-jawed suspension of disbelief. Then, there’s the whole shlock angle: the vampire’s well-known behaviors of avoiding daylight and drinking blood… it’s a real yawn. If you want to write an interesting vampire story, it would have to be about a vampire who is totally uncool, doesn’t care about drinking blood and doesn’t have any problem with daylight. What’s that you say? Then what makes him a vampire? Ahh, there’s the rub. Probably the closest thing to real life vampires are junkies. So maybe a movie should be made about a group of ratty junkies who converge on Barrow Alaska to flop for a month. They don’t got a problem with daylight, but they hate water like cats. So they get to Barrow, find the methadone clinic. Find out there isn’t one. Then they scrounge around forlornly,looking for junk. “Hey dude, you know where I can score? You gotta friend in me and if.” Goddam can’t wait hungry junkies. Once they get it in the vein, whaddo they care? And USE that alcohol. Its all I need for pen indef the fuzz rumbles a dirty spoon in my trap. The Sailor went wrong and hanged hisself in the Tombs. “Some things I find myself doing I’ll pack in is all.” Now you got yourself a movie.

  2. I went to see this movie a week after it came out with my friend, hoping that it’d be a creepy horror gorefest. But it ended up being a boring, poorly written piece of filth that I wasted a good hour and a half on. The story wasn’t at all plausible in the sense that the writers assumed that we the audience already knew things such as where the vampires came from, and why they were there. And every single death that happened could be predicted way before they happen. And the acting was horrendous.

    If it wasn’t for my best friend being there making fun of the movie as it went along, I would’ve asked for a refund. It was a good story idea, just very, very poor implementation into film. Don’t waste your time on this film, if you want a good vampire movie, go watch “The Lost Boys”, “Nosferatu”, or the Blade series. Pretty much any vampire movie is better than this one.

  3. I couldn’t wait to see this and wish I didn’t. It was terrible on so many levels. The vampires just show up out of no where. You never learn how or why. The town completely shuts down for 30 days, why? People cannot work in the dark? A mysterious bum shows up. Here he is working with the vampires. He disappears. No explanation. You see him in a prison cell and then you don’t. He never makes another appearance. The vampires just hiss. Some vampire victims become vampires while others don’t. Why? A giant explosion happens yet the building is not destroyed nor is anyone killed. What was the point? The only hope was a total Hollywood style wipe-out of the vampires. Doesn’t happen. This was the worst film of 2007. I wouldn’t watch it again unless I was paid big bucks to do so.

  4. This has a lot of gore. No script and you feel sorry for the actors as they are trying very hard to work with material that does not work as a movie.

  5. Interesting premise, decent actors, but I felt the film lost impact for me when it became just another gore-fest. I prefer vampires to be more intelligent, elegant and less bestial. The vampires in this film seemed to devour dead rather than suck blood. The nature of the vampire’s takeover of barrow had the finesse of a sledgehammer. I felt you could substitute the vampires for any other slasher movie monster. Meh. 2 stars. Would’ve been great with less gore and a tad more subtlety.
