30 Days of Night: Blood Trails – Part 5

In the last installment (part 4), no one was safe. Pat witnesses Kate’s death scene over the webcam before facing his death at the claws of a female vampire (the first shown in this web series). I knew they wouldn’t last long, and poor George, the vampire followed him home.

In this webisode, the vampire enters the apartment while George and Jenny hide in the closet. I enjoy and loath this common practice, supernatural beings (vampires, werewolves, etc.) searching for their victims should know where they are immediately. Most likely they do know where the victims are and wish to prolong the fear of those victims.

What sharp teeth you have... The better to rip out your throat

However, this practice does help the tension grow for the audience because the element of time is unknown, the victims (generally human beings) will be found eventually, but the audience is uncertain of when.

George brandishes a baseball bat when they escape, clubbing the vampire with nails stuck in the bat. Conveniently located in the closet that George and Jenny are hiding in, why did they have that? A baseball bat, I understand, but the nails protruding from it… What were they doing with that? They must live in a bad neighborhood, or they need it for protection from their former drug dealers. Jenny and George escape since the sun has risen, arriving at Pat’s apartment to meet a not too pretty sight. The female vampire did not finish her job before the sun came up, somebody needs to finish him, especially when it looks like Pat is turning.
