A sample of reviews from critics across the country.
It loses some of its bite by film's end, but 30 Days of Night manages to do for the vampire genre what "28 Days Later" did for the zombie flick: give age-old monsters a modern-day makeover.

Works on its own terms, which is more than can be said of most horror films these days. If this is the kind of movie you're looking for, it delivers.
It is well-made, well-photographed and plausibly acted, and is better than it needs to be.
Dramatically, the film is a shambles, with whiplash-inducing lurches in tone and pacing that make it seem as if portions were edited out of sequence.
You can expect a lot of shredding and gurgling. 30 Days of Night is relentless, but it's also relentlessly one-note.
