What’s the difference between 30 Days of Night and 28 Days Later? Not two days I suppose.

Based on the graphic novel by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, 30 Days of Night works overtime to pump fresh life into the vampire genre, but somehow resonates for another similar film on Zombies by Danny Boyle.
Located in the northernmost part of Alaska, the town of Barrow experiences a complete lack of sunshine for an entire month once a year. As darkness descends, vampires arrive infecting everyone in the town. For Sheriff Eben (Josh Hartnett) and a few others, it would mean hiding for their lives until they see light.

Other than some cheap scares and sound effects, this film is more action packed than horrific. The whole mood and pacing was appropriate and you never quite felt the days went pass too slowly. The predictable storyline doesn’t really dump down the whole excitement of humans vs vampires.

At the end of the day, you just know that you have seen all this before, and in fact something slightly better.
