30 Days of Night Reviews

Gina Carbone
Seacoast Newspapers (NH/Maine)

30 Days is gory, graphic, suspenseful and occasionally nonsensical. But it's a vampire movie and if you're into that genre you'll probably be into this.

[A] turd covered in tasty Ghirardelli chocolate - as soon as you sink your teeth in you know you've got mouthful of sweetened sh*t.

...a horror film as dim as its prevailing palette, a graytoned fugue set in the blankness of the Alaskan Arctic.

I have pretty much reached my quota for vampire movies, but I shouldn't hold that against this one. If you haven't seen too many, you might like it.

The premise of this film has just got to be the ultimate wet dream for your average vampire.

The script is simple stuff, simpler than the graphic novel, which at least managed to devote a page or two to the vampires' back story.

Rossiter Drake
San Francisco Examiner

The action is fast and gruesome, but beyond Niles and Templesmith's unique setting, in which the typical race to daylight is stretched out to an agonizing marathon, '30 Days of Night' offers little to stir the imagination.

Commendable for its daring, unconventional vision of vampires, but its erratic pacing makes it a jarring experience that's hard to adjust to.

It has a fairly original premise and some blood-curdling moments, but it's also predictable, repetitive and vile.

30 Days of Night reinvents the vampire movie, but only with its novel premise.

Pushes things into violent, hardcore territory all too similar to Danny Boyle's zombie-outbreak flick 28 Days Later and its 2007 sequel.

I was done when there was a needless scene abusing a woman. And the ending was on the verge of interesting, until it came down to one little punch.

The vampire's attacks are nicely manic - think of an over-zealous contestant at a pie eating contest -- but they get repetitive after the first few kills.

This is a failed fright flick that is so inspired by Stephen King that the famous horror scribe should consider suing.

The producers just had to give the material to director David Slade, a hack filmmaker of the worst kind, who drowns any promise this nihilistic tale of frosty survival held by smothering the picture in excessive, pedestrian visual gymnastics.

Final analysis: vampires cool; humans suck. Go read the comic.

You could make a horror film with shocking story developments and creepy twists. Or, you could just have monsters with pointy teeth jump into the frame while making loud noises. For the latter, check out the vampire flick 30 Days of Night.

You can't have horror without suspense. Don't they teach the films of Alfred Hitchcock anymore in film school?
