    30 Days of Night

    ★★★½

    Interesting concept with a, more or less, decent execution. The sense of dread is definitely there. It's tense at times and it feels thrilling. The vampires feel ominous (specially since you don't know what they're are). Also, directing is pretty decent. There are some nice shots here and there.

    ★★★

    Si algo se le tiene que aplaudir a Wiñaypacha es su dirección y su fotografía. Y es que el apartado visual de esta película es bellísimo. El director de fotografía es un capo.
    El apartado narrativo no se queda atrás. La historia es simple, pero bien ejecutada. Todo fluye de manera muy natural y las actuaciones resultan realistas. Esto incrementa el impacto de las escenas más crudas del filme.

    Fácilmente, una de las mejores producciones peruanas de los últimos años.

    Cons:

    - Has a more fantastical / over the top narrative style in contrast to the original's more realistic / down to earth style.
