I hate to speak poorly about any vampire film that portrays the bloodsuckers the way I prefer -- you know, sucking blood and generally being total badasses -- but 30 Days of Night was never my thing. I am a big fan of the film series' inspiration, Steve Niles comic of the same name, and the story's concept should have translated to something great but I was left feeling indifferent. Fans of the series will be happy to know that it will continue on in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, this time on the DTV circuit, and judging from the new red band trailer it seems to be just as well made as its predecessor.

Melissa George has been replaced by Kiele Sanchez as Stella, one of Barrow's survivors of the vampire massacre that took place a year ago. She has been spending her time traveling the world trying to convince others of the existence of the deadly creatures that took her husband's life. A group of other survivors recruit her to help them fight back, and this time the battle centers around the Queen of the vampires, Lilith (Mia Kirshner). Ben Ketai directs Dark Days and Steve Niles lent his talents to the script, which should appease fans.

The film is slated for a US DVD and Blu-ray release on October 5, and will make its way across the pond for a UK DVD/Blu-ray release on October 11. Let us know what you think of the trailer, which you can check out after the jump.
