30 Days of Night has its fair share of flaws and cliches, but compared to Twilight it's a masterpiece. It's not perfect, but it portrays vampires the way they were meant to be portrayed. They're not romantic, the DO NOT SPARKLE, they don't want to seduce us. They are apex predators and we are their food. Danny Huston steals the show as the vampire leader Marlow, and Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, and Manu Bennett all give strong performances as well. The editing could be better, but it's plenty scary and the action is intense.
