MOVIE REVIEW: 30 DAYS OF NIGHT (David Slade, 2007)

You’re a certified Batang 90’s if you still remember that infamous Three Days of Darkness hoax that seemed like a clever collaborative marketing ploy for supermarkets, candlemakers, and Eveready. This was way before Google and Facebook fact-checks so if Noli de Castro reports on TV Patrol that we needed to cover up/tint our windows and never go out of our homes for the said deadly days, we had to believe and follow him, right?

After the massive panic-buying and constant praying (and the urge not to look out while Jesus supposedly walked the earth), it didn’t happen. One would think that people would be less gullible now in this information age, but not much has changed.

What did this have to do with the movie? Nothing really. It was just a more interesting story to tell.
