30 Days of Night (*)


Shitty. Vampire violence descends upon an isolated Alaska town in the middle of their month-long night. It's the opposite of the circumstances of Insomnia starring Al Pacino, except with vampires instead of Robin Williams. The latter is more terrifying, though not as soaked in viscera. Danny Huston, a great actor, slums it as the head vampire while Ben Foster plays the exact same nutjob he played in 3:10 to Yuma and no one seemed to notice. Here's a fun exercise: count the number of times you can actually see squinty Josh Hartnett's eyeballs during the movie. (It's like counting sheep and you go right to sleep. It works. Try it. Spare yourself having to watch the whole movie.)
