Certainly gorier than the first but there's nothing else to offer in this plodding, wholly predictible DTV sequel.

"Makes Twilight look like nursery school" After surviving the incidents in Barrow, Alaska, Stella Olemaun relocates to Los Angeles, where she intentionally attracts the attention of the local vampire population in order to avenge the death of her husband, Eben. REVIEW The film starts off, as does the comic, with a tired and angry Stella Oleson, now played by Kiele Sanchez (Lost, A Perfect Getaway), trying to get people to believe in the vampire threat. After teaming with another group of survivors, oh heck, let's just call them vampire hunters, the movie quickly turns from the original comic script and becomes just another horror clich. Be astonished as the hunters walk around LA, guns out in open and armed for war! Gasp... at the ludicrous post-Wachowski Goth wear the vamps garb themselves in! Cringe... at the forced dialogue direct-to-video actors spurt! Scream... at the low-budget CG F/X added to make the mess even bloodier! Laugh... at the trapped old woman uttering the well-used line, "Kill... me..." Dark Days misses all the charm and thrills of its well-produced predecessor. It's sharp beginning and pseudo-twist ending unfortunately could not save a story that desperately needed a stake in the heart.
