Synopsis

For centuries, vampires have stayed in the dark, forced to hide each morning or else be destroyed by the burning power of the sun. But in Columbia Pictures' 30 Days of Night, based on the groundbreaking graphic novel, that's all about to change.

Not your parents' vampires, these are eating machines, built for one purpose -- to devour human beings -- and only daylight can stop them... which is why they target the remote, isolated town of Barrow, Alaska, which each winter is plunged into a state of complete darkness that lasts 30 days.

The cunning, bloodthirsty vampires, relishing in a month of free rein, are set to take advantage, feeding on the helpless residents. It is up to Sheriff Eben (Josh Hartnett), his estranged wife, Stella (Melissa George), and an ever-shrinking group of survivors to do anything and everything they can to last until daylight.

  • 3 stars "not bad. it is a different take on the traditional vampire. the film seemed to miss something. the plot was ovious. eat humans for 30 days and for the humans, try to survive for 30 days. the actual story seemed a bit unstable, not realistic with regards to vampire films. but none the less, not a bad film. I hope this director tones down the blood and guts for the Twilight Saga: Eclipse, otherwise its gonna get an R rating."
