30 Days of Night is a 2007 Vampire film directed by David Slade and starring Josh Hartnett and Danny Huston.The film is set in Barrow, Alaska, which the film quickly tells us is the northernmost town in the USA and as such has one month with no sunlight. During this period, most of the townsfolk leave for sunnier pastures.But this year, things are different. First, a bunch of mobile phones turn up burned. Then all the sled dogs in town get brutally slaughtered. Then someone smashes up the only helicopter. When a tall, dark stranger walks into the diner and starts drawing attention to himself, Sheriff Eben Oleson (Hartnett) arrests him. But when the stranger starts talking about how "they" are coming, Oleson starts getting jumpy. Finding a man's head on a stake doesn't help calm him down.When the circus comes to town, the sheriff and his estranged wife gather up a group of survivors and plan to survive the 30 days.
