    Decent vampire movies are few and far between, and I’m having a hard time remembering a recent one that impressed me like 30 Days of Night.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • James Dyer

    This slick and sticky horror is the most accomplished treatment of vampire lore since Near Dark.

    Empire Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    It's a bloodsucker's paradise.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    A well-paced and entertaining horror debut.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    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.

  • James Berardinelli

    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.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    It's not perfect or "Shining"-level inspired, but it's solid.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Directed by David Slade ("Hard Candy"), the action scenes are artful and terrifying; these killers move so quickly and decisively, there seems to be no hope for humanity.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    These days, it's dark everywhere. Which makes Slade's wild, often exhilarating neo-Western ride into frostbit vampirism something of a respite, albeit one awash gore.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Which is more interesting: Vampires fighting over the potential long-term blowback of their Alaskan buffet, or a couple of exes bonding under duress? Seems like an easy decision, but 30 Days Of Night makes the wrong choice.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It is well-made, well-photographed and plausibly acted, and is better than it needs to be.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Based on a graphic novel, 30 Days of Night opens with a premise so promising it seems almost impossible to screw up.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Mark Boone Jr. makes a vivid impression as eccentric loner Beau Brower, and Danny Huston is mesmerizing as the leader of the shrieking, slashing, wallowing-in-gore bloodsuckers. They effortlessly eclipse the rest of the cast.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A proficient, atmospheric fangfest that does nothing you haven't seen before but still does it passably well.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Eric Alt

    It's all pulled off with a firm sense of the fun in being scared.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Like most kiddies games, this one starts out fun and then gets tired. Inevitably, that's when Slade tries to revive our interest by upping the gore quotient.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Danny Huston is screamingly funny as the alternately finicky and savage Head Ghoul--he’s like something spewed forth from the bowels of the Politburo. The problem is structural.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andy Spletzer

    With such a good concept for a vampire movie, it's hard to believe it turned out to be this boring.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    It's seductive in its buildup but overall as subtle and, alas, as humorless as a hatchet to the brain.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Nearly two hours long, 30 Days of Night makes you feel the cold (though it was shot in New Zealand) and feel the fangs, but it also makes you feel like 30 days is a pretty long time.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Director David Slade's stab at the story is actually rather ordinary.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Excels at bloodthirsty action, though dialogue and human-interest aspects are a tad anemic. Result is a mixed bag but has a catchy premise and quite enough splatter to satisfy gorehounds.

    Variety Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Forget about a stake through the heart: sheriff Josh Hartnett discovers that decapitation is the best way to stop the bloodsuckers, who suggest feral, steroid-crazed gymnasts as they scale buildings and leap onto moving vehicles.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • John Anderson

    The movie thus moves from truly creepy to truly inane, which is, unfortunately, all too common in films of this ilk.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Lighter on horror than it is on inadvertent humor.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The performers have little to do besides spill and drink blood in this tedious, inconsequential B picture. The sun doesn’t rise nearly fast enough.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    The movie approaches the final scene with a straight face, but it left the audience giggling spasmodically. This script probably should have gone all the way and thrown in a few quips: If your movie is a joke, at least be intentionally funny.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    You can expect a lot of shredding and gurgling. 30 Days of Night is relentless, but it's also relentlessly one-note.
