Not as bad as I feared, not as good as the prequel

Dark Days starts from taking viewers straight back to the ending of it's prequel. It's a refreshing beginning which immediately is followed by the future tense: Stella is now educating people of vampire existence. She's not taken seriously by anyone before she kills couple of vampires in a half-full lecture hall.

FBI agent - who apparently has a bad bloody flue - advised her to keep her head down and reminds that nobody is going to believe her point of view of prequel's massacre.

It's easy enough to throw 3 musketeers to accompany Stella. There is no explanation how their mentor, humanistic vampire Dane, has acknowledged Stella. Maybe via vampire date app? Amber, the team's alcoholic, isn't pleased with Stella's lack of knowledge vampire-wise and wants to drop her out of team. That's all that we got from her character.

Anyways, Stella and the team is hunting a big bunch of vampires in L.A. (of all the places). She gets personal reason after she get the idea that the vampires might be planning to attack Barrow again.

Most of the fun of the movie is the easiness of Stella's character. She is mainly logical, thriven by solely the fact that people should know that vampires even exist. Killing them isn't her main ambition, but she isn't afraid to use the change. Paul's character isn't lacking charisma, but he's lack of dreamy memories of her daughter shine with their non- existence.

Amber and Todd are mainly there for now good reason and Dane's doings for the group are pretty nowhere to be seen. Even the main villain, Lilith, is lacking serious hotness or even serious scariness.

Dark Days is somewhat tied to the prequels plot and gives you the not so obvious ending which is always a pleasant thing. It also lacks of the dynamics of the prequel what makes it hard to give it more than 5 out of 10 stars.

It doesn't deserve to watch it

The first episode was interesting and based on a quite new idea, definitively better than this one. This sequel doesn't get the point, the story has big gap, the characters are flat with no past to tell and with no evolution during the movie, the vampire can be injured an killed by shotgun and mini gun and hordes of vampire can be stopped just by a looked door..OK isn't a baby vampire movie and isn't a first love movie as (twilight saga) and I have to say that the story is also quite dark, but after 30 minutes I found very difficult to continue watching it until end. If you want to watch a nice vampire movie take a look at something else

Disappointing sequel

It's almost a year after Barrow, Alaska was decimated. The town has gone back to normal. Stella Oleson (Kiele Sanchez) is trying to convince a disbelieving world that vampires exist. In L.A., Paul (Rhys Coiro), Amber (Diora Baird) and Todd (Harold Perrineau) are vampire hunters who introduces her to their vampire ally Dane and their mission to kill the vampire queen Lilith (Mia Kirshner).

After such a great start with the original, this is a rather disappointing sequel. I get a sense that this wants to expand this universe and Stella keeps mentioning a war in the opening narration. However, this franchise takes one giant step back into the crowded countless run-of-the-mill straight-to-DVD vampire B-movies.

It's always problematic that nobody believes. In this world, the vampires have attacked all around the country. It doesn't look like there's a vast conspiracy. The vampires aren't running the country. Even with the craziest ideas, there are people willing to believe but apparently nobody believes Stella even when they witness vampires getting smoked. I don't get how the Alaskan town could go back to normal and the massacre being explained away. I don't get how this is not big news. I don't get why this is not going viral.

There is also the lack of tension. The original is such a compelling horror. The vampires got frightening again. This movie pales in comparison. Maybe my expectations were too high. There is no longer any point in continuing the franchise along this line. It's such a short time since the original but a reboot is probably the only way to go next.
