THIS MIGHT BE CONSIDERED A SPOILER, PLEASE SKIP IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED BY CRAPPINESS IN FILM-MAKING.
The movie blew. I had such high hopes for it too! The premise is awesome... a place vampires can go for 30 days of straight gangster blood sucking violence and terror! Oh no, they gotta go and fuck it up!
Let's start off with the fact that this movie went from "great idea" to "I've seen this before" in about 10 minutes. I was pissed as soon as they started trying to build characters for Hartnett and the broad. Then, give it a shitty sub-plot... predictable situations leading to a predictable outcomes!
On top of that, give the vamps only 150 some-odd people to whack: then they go and do it all in one night... where's the suspense in that??? I was thinking, "man, these guys are gonna drain this place dry one poor bastard at a time. AWESOME." Nope, they fucking blood lust that place like a pack of fanged Vikings. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING. If I wanted to see a war movie with a town-crushing bloodbath, I'd watch Apocalypto... at least it was not that predictable.
To wrap it up, top it off with a languid hero-be-all predictable ending, overly done effects ( I HATE that goddamn clichéd scream that ALL the horror movies are using now for any scary critter) and some sappy sunset horseshit and you get a C- review.
