This movie is based on a premise that a small town in Alaska has 30 days without sun each year. Vampires descend on the townsfolk during this period. As a horror movie I would rate this movie 6/10. This movie missed a key essential element which is crucial to the success of such a movie - suspense. If it is attempting to be a horror movie then the movie should have taken place over the course of one night and the audience should have felt the same fear and sense of desperation that the victims in the movie felt. Unfortunately, this was not the case. One of the highlights of the movie was the acting of Danny Huston who plays the lead vampire, Marlow. Huston gave an excellent and very convincing performance as a haunted creature of the night.
If it's not ASAP, I don't care

I have one question: Where did the vampires come from and where did they go once the sun returned
They turn to dust! Duh!
I dunno, never saw the movie.
I thought it was good. Not great, but good. I for one thought it was very suspenseful at times. I think the movie did a good job in giving the viewer the same feelings as the townspeople. The viewer can relate to them easily because there is a lot of suspense. The vampires could get them at anytime.
I wish it would have explained more on the history of the vampires. They kind of just showed up at the beginning and left at the the end with no explanation.
From my viewing of the movie it seems that the vampires came off this ship that looked like it was stuck in the ice. The movie never showed where the vampires went off to once the sun came up. Presumably they may have gone back to the ship, though I don't know how the ship could move as it looked frozen in the ice. I believe that the movie deliberately did not show what happened to the vampires so that there's room for a sequel.

Though the comic doesn't even touch Maus.
Yes, but Maus is one of the defining books of an entire genre.
The film was shot in NZ, and I caught a thing about it on the late-night news last night;
The creator originally wrote a film script, but it was rejected, so he turned it into a comic book. The film is a interpretation of the comic book - and where it deviates from the book it actually uses bits from the original film script.
I almost went to see it the other day, chose a different movie instead. The TV ads/previews looked a bit corny to me. Maybe I will go see it if the concensus is that it is a good movie.
Kwould, I suppose that it might be entertaining to see. The movie did have some good elements, such as the acting of the bad guys. I rated this movie 6/10 because I didn't find the movie to have enough suspense and scary scenes. If you're into horror flicks then you still may wish to check it out. Plus I'm sure that the experience would be much better than if you waited for the movie to come out on dvd and watch it on your home tv.
Id really love to see the movie since its based up here. thats gunna be so cool -^_^- from the info on it that ive read it sounds pretty good, then again i like nearly all vampyre moves so who knows haha.
