EDITOR'S NOTE: Each week, MTV Movies Blog subjects two women with very different tastes in horror movies to the highs and lows of the genre, then records their discussion of the films. This time around, the "Gore Girls" tackled David Slade's "30 Days of Night"—an adaptation of Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith's vampire tale set in Alaska. Be sure to check out MoviesBlog.MTV.com for more from the "Gore Girls." -RM
Welcome to Gore Girls! MTV contributor Terri Schwartz doesn't know crap about the horror genre, and she's volunteered to be our Movies Blog guinea pig. She has a good guide too. Fellow contributor Jenni Miller is a bonafide horror enthusiast, and she's willing to walk Terri through her formative experiences with blood, guts, monsters and maniacs. Together, this dynamic duo are THE GORE GIRLS!!! Good luck Terri... you're definitely going to need it.
Our vampire-themed month for the Gore Girls continues today with "30 Days of Night." The setup is actually pretty ingenious for a vampire movie. The blood-suckers hate sunlight, right? And Alaska has, what, 100 days or so of sunlight each year? There's no better place for them to call home, provided they can survive that long hibernation. And "30 Days of Night" has the added bonus of being directed by David Slade, who just wrapped filming on the third "Twilight" movie, "Eclipse." Take it away, Jenni and Terri.
