Aye, just watched 30 Days of Night.
Brilliant movie. Based on a cult classic comic book series, its about vampires who terrorize a town called Barrow, in Alaska during their winter solstice. In real life, the place experiences an extreme winter solstice, with 60 days of night. In the movie, they make it 30. Okay, nevermind.
Anyway, there's tons of blood, tons of gore and interestingly, no good looking vampires. They made them all look like freaks. Haha... okay, anyway, it's a good movie, with a decent storyline, and fluid transitions. They place a lot of emphasis on the importance of family, and the inner conflicts make things more interesting in character development. Plenty shock scenes too.
I was the only one laughing in the movie theatre at some scenes though -.-. There was one part where a guy got killed in a funny way and I burst out laughing. Alone. Geez, you'd think I'd have at least some "support" in laughs. Ah well, enjoyed it immensely. Watched it with Koh Wee, Yao Qi and Hui Fen. Recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind blood and gore.
