30 Days of Night – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 15

30 Days of Night

I never really hear anyone mention this movie so I didn’t have terribly high expectations for it. Luckily it turns out it’s pretty good. Not a timeless classic certainly, but more than good enough to keep you entertained for a couple of hours. The basic premise is that a group of vampires manage to cut off all communications to a small town in Alaska as thirty days of polar night is about to set in. After that, events play out pretty much as you might expect. It was kind of cool that the vampires were talking in their own language. Less cool was that I watched without subtitles for three quarters of the movie until I realised that there was actually supposed to be a translation of what the vampires were saying. I haven’t quite decided if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that I could follow the movie’s story without any problems whatsoever without being aware of significant portions of dialogue.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
