30 Days of Night -Vampire Movie!
Last night I finally saw the new vampire movie 30 Days of Night. For those of you who have no idea what this movie is about, I’ll give you a brief synopses – it’s “based on a graphic novel” (which is really basically a comic book), written by Steve Niles, and stars Josh Hartnett and Melissa George. The movie takes place in the isolated small Alaskan town of Barrow where the sun disappears for 30 days each year. Vampires find the town and consider it ideal for their particular need to be in the dark and feed. The movie follows the town as they see if they can make it through the 30 nights and vampires until the day returns.

I thought the movie was pretty good, trailers promote it as a “re-envisioning” of the vampire, and I think they did a pretty good job. The vampires are less human than traditionally depicted, and they even have their own language. I loved their teeth – instead of the traditional “Dracula” fangs, they actually have a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth like real monsters. The movie is very graphic….they show everything! Lots of blood and fights – so you need to be ready for alot of gore – and as someone told me, they don’t leave anything to the imagination, and possibly they went a little to far with that. All in all, I enjoyed the movie. Best vampire movie ever made? I don’t know about that. But 30 Days of Night was a fun horror movie, especially with halloween around the corner, definitely worth seeing!
