I actually liked the first one. Definitely need to check this one out.

 I really liked the first one but this one loses all of the things that made the first one work. Really, really not good.

I really liked the first one and was kind of sad Melissa George dropped out from the sequel, because I really like her, but definitely it was for the best!! This movie sucked and it would be a shame to see Melissa George in this terrible excuse to cash in from some fans of the original. Don’t waste your time!

To the reviewer:

Did you bother reading the graphic novel prior to writing this review?  I haven't seen the film myself, but from what you describe it sounds like a pretty faithful adaptation.  Now, I won't say Dark Days is as good as the original, but it's a great book, and this film sounds like it stuck pretty close to the source material.

Read the book, and judge the film as an adaptation.  Nobody cares what the average film viewer is going to get out of it.  Comic book movies are made for comic book fans, and we like faithful adaptations.

The fact that it may have been a faithful adaptation doesn't make it a good film.  Films and graphic novels have completely different tones.  The original film was also a faithful adaptation.  Being faithful doesn't make up for poor acting, plot holes, and lapses in logic. 

Also, you are completely wrong when you say that comic book movies are made for comic book fans.  Movies are made to appeal to the widest possible audience.  This is why villains like the Joker and Lex Luthor have been used so often in films.  The general, non-comic fans know them as opposed to villains like Ras Al ghul or Darkseid.  i think the producers and film studios VERY much care what the average film viewer is going to get out of it.  They better if they intend to try and make a profit.

Isn't there a 30 Days of Night and X-Files crossover comic coming out? Why not adapt that to a movie? It would probably be a hell of alot better than this mess and everybody loves Mulder and Scully, it's just that last X-File movie sucked badly.

I saw this the other day and compared to the first one, it paled in comparison. Most of the characters were 1 dimensional and even though I love me some Mia Kirshner, she didn't do much for a big bad villain and that cop was annoying. Reminded me of a bad episode of Blade the series.

For a direct to DVD sequel...I thought it was pretty well done actually.  Far better than most.  People need to consider the lower budget while comparing the two...something they forget.  For what they had, this sequel was really well done.  Was it perfect?  No, but neither was the original!

 I watched the movie. It's quite entertaining to me. Only that vampire queen, she has no special ability but the vampires are listening to her.
