Well...I've never been into horror films much, but my wife is a fan and she convinced me to take her to go see "30 Days of Night"
I must admit, it was surprisingly good. Its based on a Dark Horse Graphic Novel and although I've never read it or seen it, the movie had that "graphic novel" feel. The Vampires were very well done. Extremely evil and believably "real", if vampires can actually be done realistically. They just weren't cliched...the way they talked (screeched), moved, looked and killed just felt like they should, if they actually existed...
The action was suspenseful and I never found myself bored...so if you're like me, meaning, you don't really care for horror films, but you're willing to give the genre a try, check out 30 Days...I guaranty you'll leave the theater thinking about the movie, and to me, thats one of the hallmarks of a good film...
EDIT: Hey, I said it was good, not that I knew what it was actually called...

Two corrections.  "30 Days of Darkness" to "30 Days of Night", and the original publisher is [link=http://www.idwpublishing.com/]IDW[/link], not Dark Horse. Currently IDW is finishing up a 3-ish mini-series, Red Snow, which takes place in the 30 Days "universe" but on the Eastern Front in WWII. Ben Templesmith, the original artist for 30 Days of Night did both the art and story. The final ish just came out this week. Highly recommended if the idea of Nazis and Commies fighting vampires floats your boat.
