Blood, snow and teeth look fucking exceptional in 30 Days of Night, a claret strewn comic adaptation worth pointing your peepers at for the overhead panoramas as the town of Barrow falls to vampire infestation, a sequence that spectacularly captures members of the community’s insides becoming their outsides.
Guillermo del Toro directs and without that it is unlikely anyone would be watching this, though Perlman is always eminently watchable, however Hellboy (and we are strictly talking the film here) despite some nice touches is for kids.
Dark, dirty, Parisian and pleasingly violent in moments, 36 is mean and moody with enough Depardieu and Auteuil to make you want to be aging and French.
