popcorn 7 out of 10

This is one of my quick reviews of an older horror flick, 30 Days of Night.

The film is directed by David Slade, whose credits include American Gods, Hannibal, The Twilight Sage: Eclipse, and some other projects.

The cast includes quite a few known actors such as Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Danny Huston, Ben Foster, Mark Boone Junior, Manu Bennett and more.

Josh Hartnett Films on Amazon.

The story takes place in the isolated Alaskan town of Barrow, the northern most town of the U.S.,on the eve of when it goes into its annual cycle of, well, 30 days of darkness, hence its name. But as the sun sets, strange, odd and scary events start to take place around the town.

The town sheriff (Hartnett) encounters this troublesome human (Ben Foster) that is a stranger to town, but no one can figure out how he came in to town. But we, the viewers know how he got there and what he’s been up to.

Once the stranger is caught by the sheriff, the real danger to the 152 citizens of Barrow becomes evident when the phone land lines, cell tower signal and electricity cuts out and the gang or pack of very hungry, or shall I say, bloodthirsty vampires, yes, vampires, comes a calling.

Then the “fun” begins.

But as they first attack the town no one understands why these attackers don’t die when shot? But it doesn’t matter as this hungry hoard makes short work of most of the town folk, except for a small group of survivors.

POWER RANGERS (2017) Movie Review

April 1, 2017
