30 Days of Night/Fridge

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Fridge Horror

  • The idea of a constant vampire attack via 30 Days Of Night status gets much worse when you recall that in real life, if you live above the Arctic Circle you may get much more than that during the winter.
    • 3 months of night?

Fridge Logic

  • The Vampires are supposed to be constantly searching the entire town for survivors and Eben's group don't even dare to make the slightest noise (for the most part), lest they attract any of them. So, how could Billy have performed his Mercy Kill to his wife and daughters without them hearing the gunshots.
    • Also, The Stranger manages to move around the entire town completely unnoticed, whilst sabotaging most means of escape and contact the town has to the outside world and no-one really knows how. This includes stealing every cell-phone he can, sabotaging the local plane by throwing it's engine in a grinder and killing all of the sled-dogs. Now the last one, would have been the least likely one he would've been able to get away with, both in terms of being caught and in terms of not receiving any bodily harm. He simply walks up to each of them with a knife and stabs them to death, now not only would the noise have been tremendous, but in a Real Life situation, the instant he even attempted that, the dogs would have been on him and torn him apart. They were chained up sure, but Huskies have been known to quite easily chew through steel when they want to (in little under a few seconds in some cases) and are fiercely loyal to each and every one of their group. You harm one of them, not even a knife will help you out much before they're on you (and this troper is speaking as some-one who has had experience with these kind of dogs). The comic mostly averts this by leaving out the two latter scenes and strongly implying that The Stranger was a Vampire (in the film, he's Human all the way) and thus able to move around much more stealthily (under cover of darkness) until he is arrested.
    • One of the humans uses an ice cutting machine to kill several vampires. When they finally catch him. The lead vampire extoles that "When man meets a force he can't destroy. He destroys himself instead." Which given that he just killed ten of them does not make a lick of sense. He must of just been acting smug.
      • Well being smug is a well know vampire trait.
        • And it makes some sense...If you think of 'force' as the entire vampire race then it does. The human (I can't remember his name) destroys a few but he doesn't destroy the entire race and, in destroying the few, he wound up killing (destroying) himself.
  • A number of things will happen if you attack a member of a large sled dog pack hand-to-hand. You walking out of there without a mark on you is not one of them.
    • The Stranger does have a dog bite on his left hand afterwards, but it's easy to miss given the filthy condition his hands are already in.
    • The same can also be said for somehow collecting every satellite phone from a town where most everyone is an armed roughneck that spends most of their time around the house.
    • Where were all the vampires going to go before Eben challenged Marlow? They fight for about ten minutes and the sun was almost ready to rise by the end of it. Where were they going to hide from the rays, seeing as how they were burning down all bits of shelter in the town?
      • Fridge Brilliance According to how it really works, the first sunrise would be a very short one, possibly under an hour if I understand it right, and hence, the vampires would not need a very permanent hiding place, just a temporary one. Or more possibly, they were going to head back to that boat you saw 'the stranger' watching in the beginning of the movie.
