Can I just say that Melissa George was never in Home and Away and the Australian media should stop insinuating that that's all she can do.... after all, croissants and walking the fog in New York is a better way for her to spend her time. LEAVE MELISSA ALONE! Stop being so small time Straya! Ah the movie - yes, I liked it.
Read the book and loved the movie. Happy they kept the polar bear part out of it though. Nasty with loads of violence & blood...
was ok - there are better vampire movies but a good idea
really dont bother watching you will be wasting your time
good vampire movie enjoyed it
A slightly different approach to most vampire movies. We enjoyed it a lot.
Vampires were quite scary but the movie was no where near as scary as I expected from reading the reviews. Good entertainment though.
I like it. I'm a big vampire movie fan, so what ever it is I will enjoy. If I ws a vampire I'd go to this Alaskan town, plent of night, cut off for a month, no transport, they are easy pickins.
Very poor story line and slow getting to the point. A flop for me.
Just another vampire flick.
Nothing new except for the distortion of faces.
Could have been better given abit more history.
too many long pauses
The most lame and pathetic vampires in a movie. Apart from them it was ok.
I dunno, this movie felt very contrived and dull to me. This was in part due to Melissa George and her one expression acting style - surprised and scared both look the same! However the normally reliable Josh Harnett was the same, it was like he was phoning in his part from Florida. Could have been much better.
Really good storyline and action
The vampire as they should be remembered, free from the MTV sugar-coating.
Hartnett and Huston were flawless.
Different take on the usual vampire style movies. Actually enjoyed it, except for the killing of the dogs.
Different spin on vampire movies, but still a very predictable vampire movie.
This was one of the best new horror movies I've seen in quite a while. I really found myself on the edge of my seat at times and I loved the way the vampires were actually frightening to look at - not sparkly or pretty in any way! I think this movie would suit people who really enjoy a decent horror movie - there are some slow parts as mentioned but overall this was very well done.
Good vampire movie although it was ruined by the god awful twilight and new moon man twilight ruined every vampire movie!
BUT THIS IS A GOOD FILM
Really enjoyed this one. One of the better recent horror movies.
Great movie! non stop action thriller.
This is an enjoyable horror movie, what i would consider to all to worth watching.
Theres action all the way through the movie.
With a very good ending!
Worth watching to all
4 stars out of 5.
Great Vampire movie, probably the scariest vampires i have seen in a while I really liked this movie
This is probably one of the best vampire flicks to have come out in a long time. A great premise for a film, a town in Alaska shrouded in its annual 30 days of darkness is overrun by blood-thirsty vampires.
Just the right amount of blood and gore without being too over-the-top, this film should keep fans of the genre happy.
Filmed entirely in New Zealand the majority of the cast are Australian or New Zealanders as you can hear in some poor American accents, apart from Josh Hartnett.
I gave it 4/5.
Hmm..more vampires than u ever saw..they are mean and alien..but....the end is the best part..a 7/10 from me
scariest vampire movie I have ever seen
This is an awesome take on the zombie movie. Something differnt with the thrill factor and gore still in there.
Pretty average for my tastes.
Great, i loved this one most graffic film ive seen in a long time surprised me to be honest, must see if your into movies like 28 days later, resident evil, etc etc
By far one of the best vampire movies I've ever seen, it even has a (very small) love story which is done in such a way that makes you care for the characters with an ending that leaves you just a little sad, but satisfied.
The 'Kill Bill' of vampire movies...for those who like their fresh meat raw and bloody. Satisfyingly creepy and atmospheric. Don't try watching this movie on your laptop - all the action takes place in the dark.
As far as silly vampite movies go, this was up there with Blade. Probably a bit scarier though. Josh Hartnett is good, not sure about Australia's own Melissa George... Fun and bloody!
A very solid vampire movie that faithfully follows the comic book mini-series. Some excellent special effects and make-up, combined with a good story and soundtrack causes some jumps.
I really enjoyed this. If you love a good zombie movie, this one's a must see
Interesting concept and impressively gruesome in places (extra points for the gigantic chainsaw action - wheee!). We found it pretty entertaining on the whole, mainly because we spent most of the movie poking fun at it. It was all a bit patchy, but the special/visual effects were good, the splatter was plentiful, and Josh Hartnett was admirably engaging as the hero of the piece. Definitely worth watching if you're in the mood for some blood-soaked arctic vampire action.
Loved it. Great movie, the best vampire movie I've seen.
Not what i expected but a good movie to watch in front of the fire. Keeps you wanting to watch it even when the violence is bad. give your self a few hours of downtime a bowl of popcorn and watch this see if you can leave the tv for 5 mins. I dont think you will. You will be waiting for the sun to rise the whole time.
A great movie with a weird storyline, yet still wonderfully made. Watch if you're into thriller/horror.
Great movie kept me watching all the way through
Very different from a lot of horror movies. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Another reviewer says it is like watching a horror novel and I agree. The pace changes instead of constant havoc going on from 20 minutes in until the end. It's (mostly) believeable and the acting was quite good.
Was action packed from start, edge of seat and scarey. Plenty of gore if you like that sort of thing, closed my eyes few times got a bit much.
Rubbish really !! So where did the vampires come from and why did they choose this winter to make their debut? We never get to find out. This movie only rates 2 because of the really good special effects and reasonable story line. The acting was typical horror flick i.e. very amateur and it became very predictable. Not really worth the effort.
Horror movies are not my favourite, but this isn't a bad one, quite well done. Very graphic, but that is what I expected from a vampire flick anyway!
I didn't realise it was about vampires so didn't watch it.
not to bad. i have seen better. Josh Hartnett is the biggest bonus of the movie.
An excellant new take on vampires that over take a small town in the Artic circle and the sheriff, his wife and others have to surive till the 30 days of night are up. The acting is brilliantly done and the direction throws in some good scare scenes along with good plot twists. The violence and gore is well done too with some good spashy kills. The ending is downbeat but suits the film well.
Def worth a rental and its good to see life returning to the vampire gene again.
For a vampire miovie with a twist this is half bad. A bit more than your usual vampire movie. Not bad.
Great movie, very graphic & bloody. Only thing I didn't like was that the story was to much one sided. Should've been more equaled out.
excellent movie. really enjoyed watching this one. almost believable it was that good.
thoroughly enjoyed it - a good movie
Better than expected, ending not the best but enjoyable
Takes the vampire pic back to its scary, blood thirsty beginnings. This is the sort of vampire flick we've been looking for. Full of atmosphere, extremely graphic violence, and impenetrable darkness. Leaves the likes of Buffy a million miles behind.
Don't be fooled by the cast as I was. This movie is not worth your time.
I didn't have terribly high hopes for this movie, but kept seeing ads for it so decided to give it a try. Wish I hadn't bothered - totally farcial storyline, so bad in fact that it is one of only few movies I've not watched all the way through. Give this one a miss!
keeps you entertained but been done before
Excellent blood sucker movie, this movie has it all with a great cast plenty of suspense and gore, plenty of gore that had me chilled a couple of times. If your into horror like "The Thing" and "Underworld" this is the movie for you. Excellent.
Another predictable boring horror movie, ordinary acting and a lead vampire that looks like he should be in the Pet Shop Boys....nicely shot though but overall not recommended.
Gruesome, graphic and morbid but still watchable.
It was gory! It was terrific. Well directed and a great setting. Vampires hideously scary as they should be. Excellent.
Run of the mill vampire movie with no real surprises. The sacraficial ending is very reminiscent of Blade 2.
Good movie Little bit greusome
beautifully filmed. perhaps a little unbelievable but cool vampires anyway. love a vampire flick.
One of the worst movies i have seen, and i like bad movies and i like vampire movies more.
When that cant expalin a part of the really bad script the just skip forward a few days .
Could have made it half decent if they over did it so it was funny at least. but nope.
Could have done so much more with the storey set. shame.
You really need to watch this very late at night with a full moon and make sure you have the lights off and the windows open then you will really enjoy the full effect of the movie.
Worth Watching - Unromatic for vampire movie, and too advance for zombie movie.
very gorey! so if ur into the blood and guts and very vicious vampire thing, then go for it!
pretty lame movie, the entire movie was set at night in the snow so there wasnt much to see
Quite an enjoyable movie. I read the book and just had to watch it. Like all movies from books the book is the beater one but the movie is still good
Zombies/vampires crossed with a love story. Entertaining but no susbstance.
Best Horror Moive watch for a long time .
Very good Sound , DTS -5.1 .
One of the better vampire movies out now...really liked the backdrop...worth watching
In my opinion, this is one of the best comic to film adaptations there's been - they've really done a great job keeping it very close to the comic's story, graphics, excellent different-to-every-other-vampire-flick vampires. It has a proper, gripping story, which is often what's lacking from horror flicks, and encourages the reputation that it's a dumbed down genre. The cast is great (yeah, EVEN Melissa George isn't half bad) and there's an excellent soundtrack of eerie melodies and soundscapes throughout that really adds to the whole thing.
Quite good. Very menacing in places and atmospherics were good. Story a little weak and there were minor pieces missing in places - but on the whole I enjoyed it. Not up there with Interview with the Vampire though - my absolute favourite!
This was an awesome movie, first great Vammpire flick I have seen since Fright Night of the 80's. Highly worth watching for all fans of the genre and horror all round.
Thought it was about time that we saw a movie like that. Thought thatn vampires should look like the monsters that they are. Would watch again.
very nicely done flick, good mix of suspense and jumps...gore is very well presented and plentiful, reminiscent of Carpenter's The Thing, well worth a look for horror gore hounds, enjoyed it very much..
Loved it, Menacing from the very start and got better as the plot developes. This is a must see for any genre lover and shows vampires of a new breed.
Some parts slow a little but that was a relief and anyone who's into reading novels of this type should also enjoy it, the movie really "watches" as many good horrors "read" - excellent detail.
Definantly one of the best i've seen in a long, long time....Josh Hartnett really surprised me and was perfect for his character!
Now i want the comic to read :)
Pretty good movie. But its a bit like the other sort of zombie movies. Worth watching though if your in to that sort of thing.
