Moofies - 30 Days of Night - Dark Days (2010)

EXPECTATIONS: A budget sequel to a great horror comic book adaptation. This could be as much of a waste of time as Cruel Intentions 3.

REALITY: This is not all bad. I read the comic book when it was first released years ago and from what I remember this is pretty similar, at least in part. There are some decent gory moments and the make up is up to the standard set by the first film, but the problem is with the slow pacing. Slow, quiet films are fine when they're filled with great performances, but instead of building tension this film builds boredom. The vampy gore moments are pretty great, but all the silence inbetween is not very interesting.

Not bad, but not great.
