Well, it’s the summertime and as the late Glenn Frey would say…..the heat is on! There are a lot of ways to beat the heat: a dip in the pool, rubbing ice cubes all over your body, eating some delicious ice cream, and buying a promotional 30 Days Of Night beanie.
Yeah – probably not going to really keep you cool, but you will be really stylish while you’re dripping buckets of sweat from wearing a beanie in 100 degree weather. Although uneven, I actually enjoyed 2007’s vampire flick 30 Days Of Night. So much so, that I almost clicked ‘Buy It Now‘ on the eBay listing for this promotional beanie.
If you are a bigger 30 Days Of Night fan than me, then head on over to the listing HERE and check it out. The asking price of $8 isn’t too shabby for what it is. I’ve spent money on a lot worse off of eBay before. And to get you in the mood, watch one of my favorite scenes from the movie below and feel free to shout out your best vampire screech while you’re at it:
Certain horror movies frustrate the hell out of me. And nothing is more frustrating than having a GOOD horror movie with a GREAT scene. Why you ask? Because it shows that the potential was there to make that good movie a great one. To me, nothing personifies this more than 2007’s vampire flick, 30 Days Of Night.
First off, I don’t hate this movie. I actually kind of like it, but when I was done seeing it for the first time I realized that I could have loved it if it was done differently. Too much screeching from the vampires. Too much Josh Hartnett. And I never really believed that the group had really endured 30 days of night. But, I liked the overall look of the movie. I liked Danny Huston. And I absolutely LOVED this scene below:
Sigh. That scene depresses me because it’s just so well done, and the movie as a whole is not. That overhead shot is beautiful, in a sick and twisted way, and watching the carnage unfold from a bird’s eye view is rather glorious. It actually reminded me of the opening to Zack Snyder’s Dawn Of The Dead from 2004. Hmmmm – maybe it was inspired by that? Who knows. But what I do know is that Danny Huston can play a record with his vampire fingernails, and that’s pretty awesome.
