    Canada's Metro talks with Steve Niles

    The 30 Days of Night movie is headed to theaters on October 19th, and you can read a short interview with co-creator Steve Niles about bringing the project to life right here!
    Steve Niles is surprisingly cheerful for a man with blood slowly dripping out of his arm.
    The
    acclaimed horror novelist and comic book scribe is such a busy man
    these days he even has to double up his newspaper interviews with his
    medical appointments (he’s healthy as a horse, by the way).

    A scene from upcoming movie 30 Days Of Night.

    The
    biggest thing on the 42-year-old’s plate — ahead of writing Criminal
    Macabre for Dark Horse Comics, Bad Planet for Image Comics and the
    highly anticipated new book, Simon Dark, for DC Comics — is the
    impending release of the film 30 Days Of Night, based on a comic book,
    and screenplay, by Niles.

    “It really is just the thrill of my life,” he says of the film.

    “[Producer]
    Sam Raimi and [director] David Slade did more than justice to the
    comic. It’s faithful to the comic and it’s a really solid horror movie.”

    The
    appeal of the story — which revolves around a group of people trying to
    survive after vampires invade an Alaskan town where the sun goes down
    for one month — comes from a different take on its villains, according
    to the creator.

    “[Films like] Underworld and Blade have really
    humanized vampires and made them action heroes, while [novelist] Anne
    Rice has made them sympathetic romance characters and what we really
    set out to do in 30 Days Of Night is to make vampires scary again,”
    Niles says.

    “We stripped away all that humanity and just made it so all they see when they look at a human is food — nothing more.”

    Having the film arrive in theatres in October is also a strange twist of fate, according to the writer.

    “I
    pitched it around when I got to Hollywood about 10 or 11 years ago and
    got no’s across the board,” says Niles, who’ll be a guest at this
    weekend’s Rue Morgue Festival of Fear as part of Fan Expo Canada at the
    Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

    “Then when [publisher] IDW
    started, my friend Ted Adams called at said ‘Well, we really can’t pay
    any money, but if you have any ideas for comics, let me know.’ I
    literally just sent him my failed movie pitch list and he called back
    and said ‘Hey, this one about vampires in Alaska looks pretty good.'”

    Things heated up quickly after the comic, drawn by gifted Australian artist Ben Templesmith, began to take shape, Niles says.

    “We
    started doing the comic and the day the ad came out we started getting
    calls from the studios — from the very same people who had turned it
    down,” he says with a laugh.
