Vampires flock to Barrow, Alaska where the sun sets for 30 days, allowing them to feed without the burden of sleep to avoid lethal sunlight. Because of the cold, the vampires' senses are weakened and a few of the town's residents are able to hide.
Pretty solid plot.
Nothing special, just another gory horror flick. Shies away from the comic book in some senses.
The Just Plain Ugly
The vampires themselves and some horror movie clichés. And where's the unnecessary nude scene of a woman who gets killed in the shower!? (lol, just kiddin)
So what's the deal?
I am a fan of horror movies, I'll tell you that, but this movie tends to shy away from the actual scariness that I was expecting, and tends to just be another horror movie almost entirely based around people seeing gore. There are several parts that will startle you when you least expect it, but that's good. A part I thought was the drama of the story itself, where it pits people in a small town out in the middle of nowhere against a situation beyond their comprehension, pretty much everyone knows everyone and it's hard when someone turns or does something extremely retarded.
It's just another gory horror flick. Although it's worth watching, I'd say it's not worth spending much money on
Final Verdict:6.5 out of 10
