Sheriff Josh Hartnett’s town of Barrow, Alaska, is the most northerly in the US and for 30 days in winter there’s no daylight at all.

Ideal conditions then, for Danny Huston’s gang of bloodthirsty vampires to run amok.

The intrepid Hartnett joins his estranged wife (Melissa George) to ensure that the monsters don’t have things all their own way, while creepy stranger Ben Foster is also hanging around.

This full-on horror thriller, based on a graphic novel, is consistently startling and imaginative and certainly doesn’t skimp on the gore, shocks and scares.
