Horror-A-Day: Day Twenty One
They need sharper axes up there in Alaska. I mean jeez, it takes like 3 or 4 chops to get someones head off in this movie. 30 Days of Night has a pretty unique storyline. It is about a small town in Alaska that has no sunlight for an entire month of the year. This would be no big deal, except that a group of vampires decides to use this time to eat the whole town. The vampires in this movie are sort of odd. I mean, they're vampires, but they also kind of remind me of zombies. They are vampire zombies that screech, have weird alien-looking faces, black eyes, and Conehead teeth. They discover that the only ways to kill them are with sunlight, in which case they are SOL, and cutting off their heads (sort of like a zombie, hmm....) While this definitely isn't the best horror movie in the world, I did find it quite entertaining. I do have to say that when Josh Hartnett's character punched the head vampire in the mouth and it went through the back of his head, it was bad ass!
