      As far as vampire flicks go, the movie 30 Days of Night has a lot of potential. However, it falls a bit short. When I saw the previews for the movie, I just had to see it.

      After all, what can be scarier than a group of vampires visiting an Alaskan community just as it is entering a time period where it won’t see daylight for a month. And, the movie starts


      out with plenty of bad omens; cell phones are stolen and burned, sled dogs are slaughtered and the power and phone lines are cut.

      But, overall, it was a bit weak. The Vampires are shown but you are barely introduced to them so you know nothing about where they came from (you can only assume they’ve been traveling by boat from the early parts of the movie).

      And, it’s hard to tell ...


      • if they have any special powers because they seem able to be killed, or at least stopped by gun fire. The movie is also inconsistent about people changing into vampires.

        When someone is bitten but not killed, they will sometimes change right away and other times take several minutes or even hours. The movie also seems to have a lot of gaps.

        They lock themselves in an attic but you don’t have

        any idea for how long. The same for when they enter the general store.

        And, even though they hide in places apparently for days, the vampires seem to take breaks from searching from them for some reason. The ending was also very stupid; so stupid it’s not worth repeating.

        Again the movie had potential, it just fell well short of that potential and I’m glad I didn’t spend money to watch it at the theater.
