It's October and the sacred 31 days of Halloween are upon us-time to get your gore on! The chill is in the air, the leaves are on the ground, and Halloween candy has been out since Labor Day. So while you’re waiting in the Starbucks line for an overpriced double pumpkin spice whatever, pass the time with this year’s scary movies reviews!
Vampire tribe descends to feast on Alaskan town where the sun doesn't rise for 30 days. Gore abounds but what I liked most was the writers rescued vampirism from modern explanations of genetic defect and viruses and returned it to its feral roots. This clan is all menace, all the time—no opera capes, no romance, and nobody sparkles. The only thing I fault these vampires for is not getting Sarah Palin while they were out there.
”30 Days didn't come out of a love of vampires. I had burned out on how accepted they had become. When (Ben) Templesmith and I created these vampires we agreed they had to be land sharks, merciless monsters that didn't give a shit about you except for what flowed in your veins.”
”I love monsters. They are the ultimate outsider.”
