a chilling tale of survival
on 11 June 2017
This is an excellent action-horror film, concerned with the locals of a small and remote town trying desperately to survive the assault of a gang of rabid vampires. The story takes place in a desolate Alaskan town in the arctic circle. For 30 days each year this town experiences total darkness, known as a 'polar night'. The locals are well prepared for most eventualities, and are stocked up with supplies while being effectively cut-off from the rest of the world. Unfortunately this particular polar night is being taken advantage of by a coven of the undead! As the sun sets, the vampires start their attack on the town. The local sheriff (Josh Hartnett) and his estranged wife (Melissa George) do what they can to protect the townspeople who are being fed upon by the feral super-powered vampires.
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.
