Not traditionally “horror” yet very dark and gruesome

In terms of vampire movies, it is up there with the scariest (and most gruesome). There isn’t a lot of “pop out” scares but the horror of it is mainly based off the amount of violence, blood, and gore. While a group of survivors attempt to survive the 30-days of complete dark nighttime in Alaska, a town is hunted and terrorized by a band of ravenous vampires that are extremely vicious and hungry. The vampires look much more scary than what most are portrayed of in recent film and TV, and are shown stalking, murdering, and eating humans. The horror is in the suspense of trying to outrun and hide from the vampires and watching the town be completely destroyed.

Too much violence
