The snow-covered streets of the isolated Alaskan town of Barrow turn crimson as creatures of the night feast on the people in 30 Days of Night. The film is directed by David Slade (Hard Candy) and stars Josh Hartnett (Lucky Number Slevin) as the small town sheriff Eben Oleson, while Melissa George (The Amityville Horror) plays his estranged wife, Stella. The couple are trapped in the town that has no sunlight for a month with some unwelcome, blood-thirsty vampire tourists. This is a well-paced horror story with adequate character development, but that's not really important. What's important is the copious amounts of blood and gore that's being spilled. Forget about vamps with two fangs wearing nice evening attire. The film's creatures sport a mouthful of razor-sharp teeth and they are very messy eaters. The movie has your standard horror start with the obligatory fast-moving shadows and the lone victim being killed by an unseen entity. Then things become chaotic as the horde of vampires go into a feeding frenzy and start ripping into the townsfolk. A handful of survivors hide in a small attic, while the vampires stalk the streets in search of more juicy villagers to snack on. You can expect a few scares, but this is mostly a tense atmospheric thriller with some bloody beheadings.
