It is mighty. The cuts that consumed many days at a time were a little jarring, but it's the nature of the story.

I was expecting a "next year" coda myself, something to indicate that the noirish fight against the forces of the night would continue.

I thought the Ring Wraithesque vampire language was a suitably eerie touch. According to the credits all the vampires had names, but there was nothing in the dialogue to indicate who was who amongst them.

Also thought that the vampires were stupidly, needlessly messy messy eaters.

The reference to Dracula in the beginning was a nice touch.

I really like that it was a self-contained story. I think it adds to the nihilism of the piece.

Also a nice touch, IMO. I like that they were alien, unknown even to the viewer.

I think the point was that they were as much animal as person.

And answered how they got to Alaska with one couple-second image. Masterful storytelling, that.

I liked how they portrayed them as the killing machines that they are. All too often we only see the romantic view of the vampire. Very interesting concept I was glad I went to see it.
