Movie Review by Misty
April 4th, 2008

Glad I don't live in Alaska...

Favorite Movie Quote: "Little Girl Vampire: I'm done playing with this one. You want to play with me now?"

I think we've been romanticised about how Vampires really would be with past vampire movies. Such things as Vampires falling in love with humans, the sexy Vampire b*tches wearing skimpy dresses, the bordello types of Vampire houses, etc. have made us think that Vampires are all sex and neck biting and ruffle-y shirts. The Vampires in this movie are far from that typical view of Vampires. They are relentless, cold, and they are killers.

I was thinking that Josh Hartnett was going to stink it up, but he really did a great job as the sheriff/hero figure in this flick. The separation between him and his wife was a little distracting to me, but I guess it was necessary to show some background of the characters and not just jump into the whole Vampire scene, huh? There were a lot of really great performances in this movie. The 'head' Vampire, which I believe was played by Danny Huston, was outstanding with his cold, blank stares and total uncaring demeanor. I hadn't seen him in anything until this flick and found it nice to have some fresh faces that I didn't know.

I just found out that the stranger that comes to town was Ben Foster! He, also, brings it with an outstanding, sort of crazy dude that just wants the Vampires to take him with them. At one point he even has foam coming out of his mouth when he's talking to Hartnett's character...it's amazing how much emotion he puts in to his facial expressions and stuff.

The ending was a surprise to me, and I found a few things a little unbelievable, but overall it was a pretty great movie. So, if you're tired of all these 'pretty' Vampires lately...try these guys on for size...they creeped me out!
