This is the story of an isolated Alaskan town that is plunged into darkness for a month each year when the sun sinks below the horizon. As the last rays of light fade, the town is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires bent on an uninterrupted orgy of destruction. Only the small town's husband-and-wife Sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction.
Laurie Strode's son and the Batshit crazy bitch from Triangle in the fight of their lives against some hungry vampires. Darkness. A doggy massacre. The Messenger's ugly-ass teeth. Grandma's Medical marijuana. A gladiator cop. A deadly game of rock-paper-scissors. Bobby from SoA's snowmobile ownage. A Magic City vamp. A chicken-shit doc. A loony old man. One naughty little girl. Going all Lizzie Borden on your friends. Brotherly love. Crixus loses his head, again. Juicing on vamp-roids to save the day. Enjoying a sunrise with the one you love. One of the better vampire films in recent memory.

Most vampire films of the last 40 years have the same premise and conclusion, the hero needs to survive the night, needs to hold on for the glimmer of sun light and victory will be achieved. 30 Days of Night takes away the safety net away, in a town without sunlight for 30 days in the small town of Barrow, Alaska.
David Slade interpretation of the graphic novel by the same name, is fantastic, He did some great camera work, like a bird view shot that is really cool and effective, the cinematography by Jo Willems is hunting,…
30 Days of Shite...
Only joking, I'm not on LB to get a few cheap 'likes' or to do an above average genre flick a disservice. Since watching at the cinema back in the day, I have always defended this movie against naysayers.
On a re-watch, I'm slightly amending my position. 30 Days of Night is a little tepid. The array of dull, clichéd supporting characters doesn't do it any favours, the love story and a few of the set pieces are weak and its visual thrills are low key and repetitive. I'm not sure how that happened with all the bloodletting and obvious violent intent.
However, a handful of movements still make this worth a watch, in particular an ultra impressive decapitation. I also like Hartnett's restrained, close to boring performance.
30 Days of Like...
This is one of my most watched Vampire films. David Slade's 30 Days of Night is a fantastic comic book adaption. It's a rewarding little vampire shocker, set in some great locations, with an effective use of colour and sound that sets a real creepy tone. It's set in Barrow Alaska, the northernmost town in the United States. It's the beginning of 30 days without sunlight and the towns remaining residents are about to be hunted down by a group of rather nasty vampires. The savage, brutal and ultra violent gore in a few scenes really looks extra special against the eerie white snowy backdrop of Barrow. Look out for my favourite scene - the superb aerial flyby of the…
Can one of the best decapitations ever save an otherwise fairly standard yet well made horror film?
Who am I kidding?
Of course it can!
I think 30 Days of Night is a really cool vampire flick, and a pretty damn good adaptation of the comic book mini-series. It's an original and quite frightening concept which works well as a film, and the vampires are effectively creepy and relentlessly vicious, which makes the remaining survivor's situation that much worse. I do tend to think whenever I watch this that it would have been neat if they spread it out a bit more and showed what was going on over the days instead of jumping ahead a week or two at a time. Even if it was nothing too fascinating, it still would have been interesting to see what they were doing in between that time…
whoo, boy. great concept, but very overdone in the execution.
I love this film. It is so vital and visceral that it begs to be watched.
Vampires who are forces of nature (and behave like the rage-filled zombies in 28 Days Later) take over an Alaskan town during the time the sun never rises in the dead of winter. Vampire playground anyone?
Screams to Stream continues with a horror movie that's both a tense, visceral vampire movie and a fantastic graphic novel adaptation. Taken from the pages of the Dark Horse Comics' series of graphic novel created by Steve Niles, "30 Days of Night" came out at a time when vampires on the big screen didn't sparkle or break like cheap porcelain or played baseball in the weirdest way possible like a certain vampire movie that would come out a year later, This was when vampires were meant to be feared.
For one month out of the year, the town of Barrow, Alaska experiences total darkness. Nighttime from sun up to sun down. This is clearly the perfect place for some nocturnal…
Very cool, with more then a few plot holes. I had fun with the tension and gore, but could've done without the Blade II ripoff at the end, still worth a watch though!
This is one of my favorites movies ever ! From the first time i wathed this movie years ago i fell in love with it . I can name all the things i love from this movie but to keep it short i love everything about the movie . This movie is creepy , scary , awesome , great gore , awesome special effects , great score , cool snowy setting and much more . Some of the scariest vampires i have seen , great cast and Marlow aka Danny Huston as one of my all time favorite characters in a movie ! This is one of the best horror/vampire movies of the new millennium ! 5 stars all the way !
When I first saw this I couldn't get past Melissa George's buck teeth. Now it's her horrible American accent. Aside from that this is a well crafted vampire movie.
Suffers from the same problems that afflicted The Hole. A theoretically small location that is instead a lot more lucid and indefinable than it should be. A good concept which suffers from a lack of rigour in pushing its spatial or conceptual limits.
I would die immediately.
