30 Days of Night: Blood Trails – Horror Review

30 DAYS OF NIGHT: BLOOD TRAILS is twenty-minute short subject compiled from Fearnet.com’s online webisode series, which acted as a kind of prologue to 30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007). As a sop to FEARnet’s target audience, the heroes are Internet geeks who unravel a terrifying secret; unfortunately, they are also complete idiots who have taken few precautions and provided no self defense – even though they know they are up against blood-thirsty vampires. As a result, before they can reveal their discovery to the world, they all die bloody deaths – filmed with annoyingly shaky hand-held cameras, the footage juiced up with jerky cutting and loud noises. The story builds up to the big revelation that the vampires are planning an attack up north, where the sun won’t set for thirty days – which of course we already knew, so the whole things feels a bit pointless.
