Terrifying at times

Being a life-long avid vampire film fanatic, I had high hopes for this. Having missed its brief release on the big screen , I waited patiently for the "dispatched" notice from Screenclick.com and finally sat down to watch it, bizarrely while it was still bright outside, at 8pm on a Tuesday evening. I was in no way disappointed by this movie and felt utterly satisfied in the end... "30 Days of Night" combines all of the things you expect in a vampire film: suspense, terror, blood-curdling action
30 Days Of Night

The kind of film you have to watch twice, as you are guaranteed to get distracted by something more interesting during the first watch (like picking lint from your bellybutton). Hartnett was good as always, but as previously mentioned, I am surprised he agreed to do this film, because his wonderous self aside, it's pretty standard vampire (on ice...) movie fodder. The gore is full on, and i did manage to watch it all the way through the second time, but i wouldn't bother watching it again
Blade 2 vs. Precinct 13

Set in an Alaskan village during the month when the sun doesn't rise, the town is ravaged by bloodthirsty killers. A small group of survivors fight to get through the titular period. Based on a graphic novel, so I hope the source material is better. The vampires are incredibly cheesy. Apart from that it's a decent horror/suspense film, with a fine performance from Hartnett but you'll feel you've seen it before. The end feels like a tacked-on, anticlimactic afterthought.

I honestly had not heard much about this movie before watching it. I didnt even know Josh Hartnett was in it until it began. However having read the synopsis beforehand i wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. The story was, i thought, very original. A unique take on an overdone genre. I found it to be too gory at some stages and thought that the 'less is more' approach would have worked better. Overall an enjoyable,if somewhat unnerving, viewing experience.

I really enjoyed this, not the best vampire/horror movie ever but it was good!!!
Josh Hartnett is very bad in lead roles I think and it should have been someone else but OMG Danny Huston makes up for it and was brilliant!!! I love him and want to see him in more movies now!!! I loved him in The Proposition and I would highly recommend that movie.
Ben Foster was great to and if you liked him in this I recommend you watch 3:10 To Yuma. Brilliant movie over all!!!
