Summary: Vampires often LIVE for the night. And the good news for them is that there are some places where the sun just doesn't like to show up very often. For the people, it's just a unique phase of the year. For the vampires, it's early Thanksgiving dinner.
History: The town of Barrow, Alaska has an annual thirty days of night, plunging everything into perpetual darkness. It seems natural...except a pack of vicious vampires led by the fearsome Marlow have found it. With no sunlight to worry about, they are about to turn this quiet town into an all-out feeding frenzy.
Notable Kills: Marlow smashes a person's head with his foot. Also, see Final Fate.
Final Fate: After scores of people have been killed, one person named Eben purposefully infects himself with the vampire curse so that he may punch a hole through Marlow's head and scare the rest of the vampires away. And then a sequel happened except it didn't. Seriously, that ending with the resurrected evil Eben ruined it all.
Powers/Abilities: Immense strength.
Weakness: Bright lights and anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-Who needs just two fangs when your entire set of jaws can be like that of a shark? Indeed, getting bitten by these vamps is a more bloody affair than most vamps before this. The sheer evil and gore on display is astounding, but at least there are those who would use the curse for good. Sure, you have to rely on blood bags, but at least you look cool.
Trivia: -These films are based off a graphic novel series of the same name. But in truth, the story would have been a film first if it had not been rejected so many times. But after the comic was accepted by IDW, the film took off.
-It is entirely possible for places to endure days without sunlight. These are referred to as polar nights, and as the name would imply, they happen over the poles, except they can last for much longer than just a month due to the sun being above the horizon for so long.
