Storyline

This is the story of an isolated Alaskan town that is plunged into darkness for a month each year when the sun sinks below the horizon. As the last rays of light fade, the town is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires bent on an uninterrupted orgy of destruction. Only the small town's husband-and-wife Sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction. Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

The vampires speak a completely original language. It was created for the film with the help of a linguistics professor at a New Zealand university. See more »

Goofs

Most indoor and street scenes are well-lit, despite having no sunlight or electricity. Even if the buildings had their own generators, which doesn't explain the streets, the characters were trying to avoid detection that lights would certainly bring. See more »

Very good movie, quiet scary.
30 December 2011 | by DaRetroChickSee all my reviews

Okay, this is a scary film actually worth watching.

I've seen quiet a lot of vampire/zombie movies, and this one stands out to me, because even though it sometimes uses a bit of gore, that's not what makes it scary.

It's the tension. You just don't know what is going to happen next, the atmosphere is very creepy and the movie just gets through to you, like you can almost feel the Alaskan cold. Most scary movies I see end really badly, this one sort of did as well, but with a bit of romance.

The thing that scared me the most about it is the vampires, I mean, you wont want one of them coming into your room at night.

Overall, very good and worth watching..

8/10
