From Amazon.co.uk

The problem with vampires is that, usually, they can't go out in daylight. That means that, however menacing they might be after sunset, when morning rolls around again, the heroes can just dig 'em up and stick a stake in them. 30 Days of Night sidesteps the whole daylight problem by setting its story in Barrow, Alaska, a town which is so far north that during the winter, the sun doesn't rise for a month at a stretch. It's such a perfect setting for vampires that it's almost shocking no-one's thought of it before now.

30 Days of Night has another trick up its sleeve, too. Its vampires aren't gothic hedonists who enjoy their claret out of jewelled goblets. Nope, these are vicious, nasty, brutal creatures who'd snap your neck as soon as look at you. They look terrifying, all misshapen foreheads and far too many teeth, and the creepy shrieking noise they make only makes it worse; they seem entirely inhuman. Barrow's isolated, blizzard-stricken location makes for a literally chilling atmosphere even before the monsters show up.

The plot loses its way towards the end, and the inevitable triumph of the heroes stretches logic to its limits, but the setting is original enough to make up for that. 30 Days of Night isn't a film you'll forget in a hurry. --Catherine Haskins

Product Description

Josh Hartnett and Melissa George star in this big-screen adaptation of the vampire comic books by Steve Niles. In the sleepy, secluded Alaska town of Barrow, the sun sets and doesn't rise for over 30 consecutive days and nights. From the darkness, across the frozen wasteland, an evil is on its way that will bring the residents of Barrow to their knees. The only hope for the town is the Sheriff and Deputy, a husband and wife team who are torn between their own survival and saving the town they love.

30 Days of Night is directed by David Slade and written by Steve Niles, Stuart Beattie and Brian Nelson. It stars Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Danny Huston, Mark Boone Junior and Ben Foster. Music is by Brian Reitzell and cinematography by Jo Willems.

Every year for thirty days the town of Barrow, North Alaska goes without sunlight. This year Barrow has visitors, Vampires...

Based on Steve Niles' own graphic comic, 30 Days of Night strips the vampire characterisation down to the core and triumphs because of it. There is nothing dandy or sexy about the vampires who have come to Barrow to feed for a month, these are ugly feral, insect like beasts who speak in their own language. The backdrop is a cold and snowy small town where no daylight is due for weeks, the population small, is about to become smaller with every passing hour. The set-up and execution is well handled by Slade (Hard Candy), antagonists and protagonists introductions are smooth, then the carnage unfolds and we shift into a tense game of cat and mouse as Hartnett, his estranged wife (George) and a few hardy souls try and survive until the 30 days of night have passed. And of course kick some vampire ass where possible.

Problems arise with the fact that it never once feels like more than one night of horror, so the questions of sleep, eat and toilet habits don't come into until you start to realise this is spread over 30 days! Is that picky? Well no not really, especially since there is little to no depth of characterisations to feed off either, back story is minimal and only reserved for Hartnett and George to let us know they are separated but love each other, thus our hero has something extra to fight for! For a story spread over 30 days it sure does lack, erm, story.

3.0 out of 5 stars "That which can be broken must be broken..." 16 May 2014
By Maciej TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a quite watchable vampire horror film, not particularly good, but not bad either. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.

Small town of Barrow, Alaska (in real life a somehow larger city, with 4212 people registered in 2010) is preparing for its annual "30 Days of Night," a period during the winter when there is a month-long polar night. As the town gets ready, a stranger rows ashore from a large ship and soon causes enough trouble and damage to attract the attention of local sheriff, Eben Oleson (Josh Harnett). Other than this unexpected investigation the sheriff must also deal with another little but annoying crisis, as his ex-wife, Stella Oleson (Melissa George), missed the last plane and must stay the 30 days - something that neither of them is happy with... And then the film really begins.

This is not a bad film, but it doesn't fully exploit all the possibilities offered by the unique place of action. The tension is not very skillfully build up, with all things fully revealed too early and the enemies appearing too openly... On another hand the vampire leader, Marlow (Danny Huston) is a quite scary creature - in fact he is one of the main attractions of this little horror movie. His name is almost certainly a tribute to the terrifying Barlow, the master vampire from the already classical Stephen King's novel "Salem's Lot" - and he certainly is as scary and evil (albeit maybe not as sophisticated) as his quasi-namesake...

In the second half this film gets repetitive and clichéd, but at least vampires are shown as cruel, evil and perpetually thirsting for blood, but also as quite efficient and cunning hunters of humans - as they should be...
