Ferocious thoroughly tough and testosterone-loaded vampire-modern cowboy top-notch adrenaline-fuelled pulse-pounder action hard-edged, violent movie!
From beginning to end, Caleb (Adrian Pasdar as a James Dean-type ) is always all cowboyed out with boots with rowel spurs, hat, cigarette, and manly stud attitude.
Young cowboy Caleb is the male predator till he find Severen, a careless... read more

I'm in the mood for an old school vampire flick with some great actors. Oh did you say check out Near Dark? Sure don't mind if I do. I can't believe this is the directorial debut of Kathryn Bigelow. This is what boosted her into a career that produced Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker. It should be quite interesting to see what she started with. Eric Red who writes here is also known for a few ... read more

The best thing about this film (and it Must have been intentional) is that there is no mention of the word 'Vampire' on the box, or in the movie.

The entire genre of suave, sophisticated vampires drinking blood from a wine glass while listning to Handel with their pinky fingers extended was boring by the time someone got done describing it to me. Near Dark is a more gritty, realis... read more

" In Kathryn Bigelow's tale of vampires in the American Southwest, the creatures of the night aren't elegant, cloaked aristocrats. They're a gun-toting gang that dresses and acts like a motorcycle gang. Caleb, a restless young man from a small farm town, meets an alluring drifter named Mae. She reveals herself to be a vampire, who "turns" Caleb into one of her kind rather than kill him. But the rest of her "family" is slow to accept the newcomer. The ancient leader, Jesse, and his psychoti"

"   Half the cast that portrayed the soldiers in the movie Aliens reunite here in this nightwalking neowestern as a gang of vegabonding vampires, who, of course, are always on the lookout for a quick meal before the sun comes up.  And this biker band of neck-suckers are pretty hardcore, even by vampire standards. Unlike many of the wimpy vamps of today’s cinema , these guys lived up to the descriptions "bloodthirsty", "throat-ripping", "stonecold" and whatever other adjectives were original"
