30 Days of Night: Dark Days, The End For The VampiresCategory: Entertainment
30 Days of Night released in 2007 starring Josh Hartnett is one of the best vampire movies I have seen.
Directed by David Slade (Eclipse anyone?), it evolves on the remote Alaskan town of Barrow where every year, it enters into a thirty-day long period without sunshine. Thirty days of night that is, hence the title.
One time, a group of vampires taking advantage of the darkness wandered into the town and started feeding on the towns folk. A small group of people banded together to survive the onslaught until sunlight returns.
While I like the Blade Trilogy and The Twilight Saga, the former is too violent while the latter is too cheesy romantic. 30 Days of Night is somewhere in between. The movie’s ending is also a strong tearjerker.
This October 5, 2010, the sequel titled 30 Days of Night: Dark Days is going to be released albeit not in cinemas but straight-to-video. Supposedly, being straight-to-video allowed the writers to more closely follow the comic book where it was taken from.
In the sequel, the vampires are hunted by the heroine from the first movie. Hmm, ala-Resident Evil?
PLOT SUMMARY (IMDB):
It has been a year since the isolated Alaskan town of Barrow’s population was decimated by vampires during its annual month long sunset. Riddled with grief over the death of her husband Eben, bound by nightmares and void of all emotions beyond hate and sorrow, Stella Oleson has spent the past months traveling the world, trying to convince others that vampires exist. Met with skepticism and laughter, she is ready to throw in the towel when a group of lost souls offers an incredible opportunity: the chance to exact revenge upon Lilith, the vampire queen responsible for the assault on her sleepy Alaskan town. With nothing remaining to live for, and nothing left to fear, Stella joins their mission and ventures into the uncharted underbelly of Los Angeles where she pushes herself to the most extreme limits to stop the evil from striking again.
