Consensus: While 30 Days of Night offers a few thrills, it ultimately succumbs to erratic execution.

Andrea Gronvall

Feels derivative of 28 Days Later.

A terrific horror premise goes begging in the garbled Halloween offering 30 Days of Night.

Scott Weinberg

A blissfully mean-spirited and aggressively creepy terror tale, and one that's not content to simply rest on its one good concept.

Nigel Floyd
Time Out

A frustrating mix of imaginative design, erratic plotting and underwritten characters.

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

It has a fairly original premise and some blood-curdling moments, but it's also predictable, repetitive and vile.

David Keyes

Here is one of those rare movies that penetrates the membrane separating all those disposable "gotcha" scarefests from genuinely engrossing supernatural thrillers.

The problem is structural. After the invasion, we're marooned with the dull survivors.

James Berardinelli

If this is the kind of movie you're looking for, it delivers.

It's Assault on Precinct 13 meets the The Thing with vampires as the baddies (Can we count the ways director John Carpenter has influenced genre films today?).

The idea of a vampire attack in Alaska, where there won't be daylight for 30 days is fantastic of course. And the set-up is still pretty interesting and… More

Take some notes you Twilight fans; this is how you make a vampire film.
