One approach that you see a lot is to desaturate reds and push the three-quarter tones towareds blue. There is usually increased contrast as well, but a reading of the lower ranges shows that everything at the lightest end has been compressed upwards, giving things a darker, somber look. It's not enough to push the dark end of the curve as you want to retain shadow detail. Here's a shot at the original posted here:

My version.
