Ghost Canyon

(Mans Nathanaelsson, Petra Nielsen, et al / DVD / NR / (2006) 2007 / Wellspring Media)

Overview: Annika, a medical doctor and her 17-year old daughter Saga have just moved to a small cold town far up north, as Annika is going to work at the hospital there. At her new school Saga meets a bizarre goth-girl named Vega who knows more about this sleepy town that she lets on. Fear strikes, and daylight is a lifetime away.

DVD Verdict: This Swedish horror comedy about vampires that take over a town during what known as polar night. It is when the sun will remain down for up to 24 hours. This will of course mean the vampires have more time to roam about town. A pill manufactured by a vampire scientist that supposed to turn humans into vampires makes it way to a local party. Thinking it's some kind of new drug the teens pass it around without a second thought.

It doesn't take long before everyone begins to turn on each other ... so yes, you guessed it, this movie gets quite ridiculous at times! For one, the dogs talk in this movie!. Yep, they talk. They have no real purpose but to try and be funny nothing else. To make things worse the action does not pick up until the last 25 minutes or so in this film. Until then we only see shadows of killings. Overall, Sweden failed at all attempts at a fun horror-comedy for the vampire genre. In truth, it has a bad script, terrible editing, and basic, generic video-game effects. I just can not recommend this one ... even for those wet Fall Sunday afternoons, sorry.
