30 Days of Night

Only the small town's husband-and-wife Sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction.

Who would do something like this?

Maybe someone got upset about

their roaming charges.

Stealing satellite phones makes sense,

you can hawk 'em.

You can write up charges

on somebody else's account.

But burning them?


...pulling some prank?

No. They would have left a note.

"F*** you", to their parents....

....or the world or whatever

Not a bad idea though.

I brought Peggy here on our

first date.

Yeah, we all did.

Not Peggy of course.

I gotcha.

Last sunset of the month.

Always works.

Well, uhm, let's go to the sign.

You okay, Eben?


Why even bother with that, nobody's

going to see it for a month.

It's condition.

Kind of put this off til the last

minute didn't ya?

There's a lot of small towns in this state.

My boss wants all this gear inspected

and certified by the 31st.

Yeah, I noticed it says barrel for the last.

Are you sure you don't wanna stay?

Me and Jane were kind of hoping...

that you and Eben would rethink this

separation thing.


I, uh...

...gotta meet the plane.

Okay sweetie. I know you can handle ????

Promise I won't live on Oreos and Snapple.

I'm going to Seattle.

Yes you are Kristen,

call me when you get there.

You got a problem?

Nothing I can't handle

my f***ing self.

Is this for generators?

Yeah, yeah most.

Beau, I'm going to have to cite

you for it. I can't have it leaking all

over the street.


For that?

...you don't have to cite me.

You don't have to do anything.

Isn't that why we live out here?

You know, for a little freedom?

Happy motoring.

Yeah, I'll add it to my collection.

You know, Beau's not so bad.

Why'd you bother writing him up?

He lives all alone out there

on the south ridge.

A little citation now and then lets

him know he's a part of this town.

Eben? Come in Eben.

Yeah Helen?

Something bad happened to John Reese's dog.

[Radio] :
Well folks, you're listening to KBRW,

Marrel, Alaska.

...today's the last day [fade out].

And we've been to get the last plane

out of here.

Hey Stella, are you okay?

????? Malachi.

Didn't you know what "right of way" means?

I'm sorry Stella.

The brakes jammed and....

...Eben wanted this back before

the storm hit. And I was trying to...

Oh sh*t!

Was going to meet you at the airport.

Wouldn't Eben?

Well, my mom could come down and give you

a tow, but you know she don't move

too fast.

F***, where's my phone?

It's me.


I uh, need a ride to the airport.


You're in town and you didn't want to talk?

I had fire marshal work here,

..and I just had a little accident.

I'm stuck on Ransom and 355 and the airport

will close, and I'll never get to Anchorage.

I mean, if you wanna talk,

we can do it on the drive.


Stella's stuck at Ransom and 355.

She needs a ride to the airport.

Can you go get her?

Stella, John Reese needs me for something,

so Billy's going to come get you.

Let me know if the day comes

and you do wanna talk.

What sick jerk would do this?

Every kennel, every dog we had.

Did you f*** with anyone recently John?

I'll kill them....I'll kill them.

This wasn't done long ago.

I'll find him.

It'll be okay Malachi.

Where have you been?

Uh, I couldn't find the damn car keys.

And then I was like..wait, is that like Rogers

and 355 or Ransom?

Yeah, never mind, let's go.

It would be a lot easier,

if you would just play grandma.

Oh, I don't really care for those sort of

games, if you want to know the truth.

Try your brother.

- Tessek?

- Eben, do you want to play?

Oh, I can't right now Jake, I'm sorry.

While you were busy with John Reese,
