30 Days of Night is a horror movie that came out back in 2007, it is based on the comic book series of the same name. This flick brought back the traditional bloodthirsty and violent vampires to the big screen – no pretty sparkly vamps here. Now, as great as that all is, you’re probably wondering why am I talking about a movie that came out a few years ago. Well horror fans, the sequel to this film is on the way – 30 Days of Night: Dark Days.
The first 30 Days of Night is about a small Alaskan town that falls into darkness for a month each year when the sun sets. When the last rays of light fade the town is attacked by a cruel and ferocious group of vampires with nothing on their minds but blood and chaos. The film follows a small gang of locals as they attempt to survive the month.
The sequel, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, comes back to the town one year later. The film follows the grieving Stella, who has spent the past few months traveling the world, trying to convince others that vampires exist. Of course, no one believes her and she is just about to give up when she meets three people that give her a chance to exact revenge upon Lilith, the vampire queen responsible for the attack on her town. With nothing to live for anymore, Stella joins the three on their mission and winds up in Los Angeles where she attempts to put an end to the evil vampires.
In an interview with Shock Till You Drop, producer J.R. Young filled fans in on what was happening with the sequel.
“I think the second film definitely stays within the world of the first film and it stays true to the second graphic novel in the series for those fans out there. The story is within that world but there are differences and a lot of that is due to the graphic novel. The first film is very much a survival film and this next one is all about revenge. There’s an action component. The last one is a western, this one is more of a war movie. It’s taking the battle to the vampires.”
Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date yet for this upcoming film.
