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.

    Wow, that looks like a great film. Great idea too, I’d heard before how places in the extreme north have a month of daylight once a year and a month of darkness, cool concept to use for a vampire film.

    Yeah I really like the premise – it’s so utterly depressing and dreadful, with no obvious escape. So the pay off at the end when the survivors do get out should hopefully be good. Unless of course, they make it like “28 Days Later” where there’s no hope at all.

    28 Days Later has a sequel and some of the people survived.

    After saying that, 30 days without daylight and vampires! Sounds kewl! [Or cold, cause that’s what it’s like in Alaska in Winter!]

    Why didn’t Vlad move from Transylvania to Alaska earlier in his career?! 🙂

    It’s time like that you need lots of wooden crosses and wooden stakes around the house! 🙂
