A blissfully mean-spirited and aggressively creepy terror tale, and one that's not content to simply rest on its one good concept.

Here is one of those rare movies that penetrates the membrane separating all those disposable "gotcha" scarefests from genuinely engrossing supernatural thrillers.

It's Assault on Precinct 13 meets the The Thing with vampires as the baddies (Can we count the ways director John Carpenter has influenced genre films today?).

30 Days of Night is a great example on how to combine chills, thrills and gore with the end result a serious and effective horror movie.

Scrapping many of the undead cliches and aided by troublingly realistic special effects, Slade has crafted one hell of a monster movie.

About as scary as Count Chocula.

Not bad, but let's just say the movie could have used a tad more intentional humor.

30 Days of Night aspires to be little more than a movie-movie, where you're supposed to enjoy the ride, without asking any questions.

... [T]he hissing foreign-language chatting vampires, with all pointy teeth, make for dull, screaming villains.

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.

Frankly, after you've seen one writhing, orgiastic vampire feeding, you've seen them all.

This isn't my favourite genre, but it's evident that the film delivers all the requisite elements for fans itching to sit through decapitations, body ripping and blood-soaked, tooth gnashing devourings directed in as fresh a way as is possible.

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.

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

It certainly does entertain, particularly for those who consider a man chopping off the head of one of his friends...entertaining. Twice!

Feels derivative of 28 Days Later.

Os vampiros vistos aqui são pouco mais do que animais irracionais e desinteressantes.
