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 --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

The plot is simple and straightforward. It's a story of survival set in the frozen wastes of Alaska, during what seems to be perpetual darkness. If you enjoy vampires as monstrous and ferocious night stalkers then you'll probably like this film. This isn't "Twilight" or "The Vampire Diaries". There's no sexual dimension to the creatures of the night in this movie. It's a well made and well acted film, and the setting - the arctic - adds a chilling effect to the horror. Overall, I highly recommend this movie.
My review title may mislead but Sam Raimi is co producer and it looks like he had some input in the way it was put together. Action and "lore" nicely demytholgised. Fast, almost relentless pace- not a laugh in sight, not too slavish to the comic book - and gory. I even liked the subtitles idea...
Both Leads and main villains are well played. The setting: wide open and very claustraphobic - a very neat trick pulled off by the directors and cast.
Along with "Stakeland" a healthy antidote for bland noughties Bloodsuckers. Underworld... /\
