I mentioned “30 Days of Night” the graphic novel a few months back, and how it was being made into a film starring Josh Hartnett and Melissa George. A quick refresher: above the arctic circle, there are nights that last for 30 days during the winter season, and guess who loves to play in the dark? Vampires. They descend upon a small town in Alaska and all hell breaks loose.
Here’s the uber creepy movie trailer. There’s no gore or cheap scares in it – just an utter sense of dread, like how are they gonna get out of this “when day doesn’t come?” And I like the look of the vampires in this film. They’re gritty and demonic looking as opposed to the stylish fashionistas dressed in black leather portrayed in other vampire films of late.
