30 Days of Night: Dark Days

2

This adequate sequel never quite reaches the heights of its predecessor

30 days of night: dark days

This vamp-hunting sequel may be above-average in direct-to-DVD terms, but it can’t escape the shadow of the David Slade original.

As the sun finally rises on blood-soaked Alaska, we rejoin heroine Stella (Lost’s Kiele Sanchez replacing Melissa George) as she relocates to LA to expose the vampire hierarchy.

Director Ben Katai summons the graphic novel’s foreboding atmosphere, but it descends into pulpy cliché and generic suck ’n’ slash.

Dark Days sinks its teeth and drains the genre dry, but gives little back.
