The conventional wisdom is that in most cases the choice of a link function is largely a matter of taste. This blog is a link function.

One-tailed, but significant.

30 Days of Night (2007)

Recently watched the very awaited movie. Josh Hartnett is to gouge the girls and girlfriends into the theaters, so he is not useless. More or less the storyline brings nothing new, several little details, but the dramatic, time and effort consuming drama-love plot seems to be a must for a movie like this. Furthermore, it has a significant role in the “planned” ending of the movie, but now I will stop, because I don’t want to be a spoiler.

It is a horror and for that scope is a very good one. The feeling sometimes is very cold and dark, which means it works. The special effects and enemy movements aren’t new or special, but they fit into this framework with no special problems. The colors used, but mainly the tiny and closed location facilitates good pictures. It is not Dogville, but some shots work well.

Nevertheless, it is not that simple and powerful as The Descent, my old-time favorite, but it works really well. The enemy has a strange Danish accepts that strengthens the bizaro feeling, but as a whole, has it’s role. So, get rid of the story, which is not that new and enjoy the dark and isolated family afternoon.

As Josh Hartnett says: “Not a bad idea though”.
