huh? Didn't get it

***I will ruin the plot of this movie for you, but I don't think you all want to see it anyhow****

So MM and I went to see a movie. Halloween is coming, and this was supposed to be a scary movie to see, so why not? (I usually end up laughing at "horror" movies, because, well, to me, they're funny)

This one could not qualify as scary at all. Really, I think we both were more confused than scared.
It had the typical boy and girl with luuuuuuve problems. Boy had a best friend, and family, (most of them die).
And the "monsters". MM and I are still trying to figure out what they were. I think they were trying for some sort of cross bred vampire. It didn't work. They were people who could scream irritatingly loud with lots of teeth and the penchant for tearing out people's necks. Not scary. Just gross. And they burned in the sun. Hence, going to small town Alaska where the sun doesn't rise for a month straight and tearing out the necks of it's innocent townfolk.
Wooden stakes didn't kill them, only Josh Hartnett and his axe could do that. Oh, and Boy has to die, so that he can save girl, naturally. Never fear, though, he died in her arms, as the sun came up. . .
If only they'd beheaded the movie, too. It was a waste of money to make, and probably, a waste of money to see. MM made the comment that his movie picking priviledges are probably going to be revoked for this one. . .
well, maybe just suspended :)

damn, now you've ruined the plot for a perfectly bad movie I never would have watched to begin with ;)

The thing that I didn't understand was that they wiped out the entire town in the first 15 minutes of the movie. At that point don't you think that the Russian vampires would bail and head to some other buffet? No they hung around hunting 4 people for a month. Go figure. Sorry, just ruined more of the plot for you. I'd have to give this one a 3 on the sucks ass scale, where 1 means it didn't completely suck and 5 which means that it makes a voracious sucking sound coming from the theater.

was that Russian they were speaking? I thought perhaps it was Klingon, or maybe tribble, or possibly Yugoslavian? Ah, who knows. Good point though, why did they hang around an empty town?
