HORROR

Grizzly bears have just lost their monopoly on chomping away at humans in Alaska. In 30 Days of Night, ravenous vampires invade the 49th state, heading for tiny Barrow, Alaska's northernmost settlement. The lure: 30 days sans sunlight—Eden for a vampire—and warm-blooded humans on whom to munch. After escaping an initial massacre, the local sheriff (Hartnett) and a small band of brave survivors do their best to elude and outwit the hungry visitors. The plotting here is conventional, with no more character development than necessary, but there are a couple scenes that will make you shiver. And Danny Huston, as the vampire leader, has the chilling gaze of a true fanatic.
