30 Days of Night (2007)

30 Days of Night

another intense vampire movie !! but sadly, it has the typical plot of vampires being the bad guys. i guess making them the good guys is a real challenge after all .. brutal, sinister, violence, gory, bloody, vicious - the film has basically everything one seeks in an intense horror film. the snow greatly enhanced the spilled blood, making it more visible than it already is .. Barrow, a town in Alaska, was hidden from the sun for 30 days during winter every year. a group of thirsty vampires wandered into the isolated town, running amok n started feasting on its townsfolk. the remaining survivors, lead by Josh - a sheriff, tried to hide out the 30 days of horror. before realized, i was holding my breath throughout the film, afraid to make any sound n caused the remaining survivors to be noticed by the vampires. helplessly watching the vampires pounce n jump the victims, i tried yet failed to shift my sight away from the screen. the movie sure caused my skin to jump all over the place !! *mixed emotions of excitement n fear* one obvious flaw however, which i can't seems to get my head around, is the little girl. when the adults were transforming into vampires, their speech somehow gotten slower n they stammer. the little girl on the other hand, totally transformed yet speaks surprisingly fluent English. "i'm done with this toy (sucking the blood of one of the victims), do you want to play with me?" *shivers while recalling the scene* overall, this is a Great horror flick. sure causes you stare at shadowy corners, prepare to flee when anyone, or anything, jumps out. though having typical plot, i walked away pleasantly surprised. What a Ride !!
