Movie Info

Nearly a year after the vampire siege of Barstow, Alaska, lone survivor Stella (Kiele Sanchez) discovers that she isn't alone when she's recruited to eradicate the vampire menace once and for all. Her waking hours filled mourning the death of her late husband and her dreams haunted by visions of the creatures that turned him into a monster, Stella becomes the subject of much ridicule when she makes it her mission to convince the public that vampires truly exist. But just as the embarrassment is becoming too much to handle, three strangers (Harold Perrineau, Diora Baird and Rhys Coiro) present Stella with an opportunity to seek revenge by killing Lilith (Mia Kirshner), the vampire queen behind the Barstow massacre. Armed to the teeth and ready to die fighting, the brave quartet descends into the sewers beneath Los Angeles and begins their search for the elusive Lilith. But should she manage to find them first, the vampires will once again gain the upper hand.

  • ...the film is, in the final analysis, simply unable to live up to the better-than-average standard set by its superior predecessor.

  • Dark Days is hardly mediocre, but barely interesting; lacking a solid hook like the first film.

  • A clever vampire concept devolves into another chintzy 'Blade' knock-off.

    Oct 3, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Prominent with a lagging pace, a dull atmosphere, lack of real scares, and a plot filled with holes and lapses in logic...

  • An engaging diversion, making the most out of its limited resources, boosted by a capable cast and some nifty make-up effects. In fact, it's a more satisfying bloodsucker yarn than the 2007 original.

  • There is no fun in this movie and it's definitely not cool enough to be serious. The characters are all so morose. Oh, my family was killed by vampires, boo hoo.

    Well, they tried to adapt the comic book sequel to 30 Days of Night, but it did not live up to the precedent. First problem is the alteration to the comic book plot, by adding more random deaths and characters does not make the film any more frightening. There are lots of gun fights in this sequel even though we know guns do not kill vampires. It had a promising start but then it fell apart as soon as the side kicks were introduced. I dreaded the inevitable sex scene, it was completely hopeless to rescue this film from its destined fiasco finish.

    <i>30 Days of Night: Dark Days</i>, from Ben Ketai, should remain in the dark because there isn't much going on here.<p>Although a direct sequel of its predecessor, <i>30 Days of Night</i>, the story behind this picture is enough to stand on its own. With that said, even though it can be called brief with a runtime under 90 minutes, there isn't much in the way of intrigue in the story.</p><p>The violence is bloody as expected, but everything else from the action to the CG is mediocre, which all adds up to a disappointing conclusion to the film.</p><p>All around, the characters and the acting are sandpaper dry. It's not a problem staring at Kiele Sanchez, but her performance had no life to back up the looks.</p><p><i>30 Days of Night: Dark Days</i> doesn't offer anything to recommend. Look at the cover and move on.</p>

    Average sequel to the vampire hit from a few years back. This carries on from where the first one left off, albeit with different, unknown, actors which leads you to the immediate conclusion that this is more of B-movie that the first. But that shouldn't put you off really as Dark Days has a gritty, realistic feel to it as the wife of the sheriff killed by vamps in the first movie is out for revenge and its not long before she comes across a gang also out for the same thing and obviously becomes attracted to one of them. Dark Days does have its moments; some decent gore and it moves along at a fair pace with a few jumpy bits but overall its to predictable to be seen as anything other than a half decent cash in.

    Stereotypical and formulaic, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days is an uninspired sequel with little substance. The story continues as Stella Oleson tries to fight the government cover-up of what happened in Barrow, Alaska, and is recruited by a group of vampire hunters in search of the queen vampire, Lilith. The film falls back on the same tired old vampire tropes and has no imagination to speak of. The writing is poor and the characters are all one-dimensional. Some of the action is good, but it's mostly action for action's sake. Nearly everything that was interesting and unique about the first film is absent in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days.
