The intervening months have not been kind to Stella and she is consumed by thoughts of bitterness and hate. Emboldening herself, she attempts to convince the world of the existence of vampires , but nobody seems to listen to her, even after she stages a public execution in an auditorium in Los Angeles. Her actions attract the attention of both the wrong and the right people however, and she finds herself guided by a mysterious figure named Dane, who steers her in the direction of the Vampire queen, Lilith - the elder who ordered Marlow Roderick and his brood to Barrow a year ago.

Her waking hours filled mourning the death of her late husband and her dreams haunted by visions of the creatures that turned him into a monster, Stella becomes the subject of much ridicule when she makes it her mission to convince the public that vampires truly exist. First of all, let me say I really enjoyed the first 30 Days of Night movie prior to this one. I thought David Slade provided a nice sense of dread and it was refreshing to see vampires be REAL vampires again after so many films are unsuccessful with this effort. This lessened my enthusiasm and for good reason. I did not care for this new Stella character nearly as much as in the original. Stella plays a survivor from the first film that has now left Alaska and moved to Los Angeles where she spends her time trying to spread the word about what happened to the town of Barrow.

Needless to say, the largely positive viewing experience provided by director David Slade spurred me to check out the comic book series as a whole. Very quickly, I could tell that the second graphic novel, Dark Days , simply was not cinema-friendly material. To restate the obvious, this sequel should never have happened. Hence the direct-to-DVD release of Dark Days and the loss of Slade — who, ironically, recently wasted his skills upon the aforementioned sparklers by directing Eclipse — and the demise of any sense of atmosphere in the picture.

Vampires are something of a ubiquitous presence in horror films, and while there are more than a few brilliant examples both celebrated and more obscure the bulk seem content with offering basic thrills from head to fangs — they suck your blood, they hate Christian iconography, they can multiply with a bite, etc.

A year after the Alaskan town of Barrow's population was decimated by vampires during its annual month-long polar night , Stella Oleson Kiele Sanchez travels the world trying to convince others that vampires exist. She is fully aware of the risk to her life that her work could bring, but does not care due to her grief over the death of her husband, Eben. Following instructions from a mysterious individual named Dane, she travels to Los Angeles to give a lecture on the existence of vampires. Aware that vampires are in attendance when she speaks, she activates overhead ultraviolet lamps that incinerate several of the vampires in the audience, in front of the humans. She is quickly arrested and harassed by Agent Norris, who she learns is one of the human followers of the vampires, charged with keeping their activities covered up. As Lilith is responsible for the vampires' every move and for keeping them hidden, the hunters are convinced that once she is eliminated, the vampires will fall into dormancy.
