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, ruthless biker/cowboy who becomes the dominant alpha (even more than Henriksen), full of sexy, cocksure swagger. Bill Paxton plays Severen, a guy that really enjoys killing other guys for the sheer pleasure of killing, he lives for the love of carnage and the endless feast of total destruction. Caleb is suddenly lusting for male victims' blood. So, Bill Paxton drags him into a roadside biker bar, picks a fight, and demands that his target hit Caleb instead. When the guy does, Bill Paxton wipes blood of Caleb's face and licks it off his fingers in obvious sexual innuendo. Taken by lust and adrenaline, he kills many patrons around to impress Caleb - Severen delights in slaughtering the redneck cowboys at the bar and you can tell Bill Paxton is loving every minute of it as well,how horny he is while using boot spurs to slit a man´s throat!... Later, impressed with Caleb stamina, Paxton gonna give him one of his spurs, like a cavalry stud receiving his manly battle spur of honor. The biker bar massacre is an incredibly violent scene, oozing visceral gore and a graphic violence and bloodshed as never seen before and deserve more details…The best scene is by far the bar slaughter with that Severens' spur to the neck slaughter. It’s a classic : Bill Paxton slicing necks with the spurs of his boots in the bar, in a very rugged and gritty western way. He is a killer of man, pure and raw, and breathing testosterone. The slaughter in the bar show Paxton in the most swift brutality against all those virile studs around in a twisted sort of way. Many of them wearing long coats and dusters and with spurs at the heels of their boots too. The murders and the slain ones are both sadistic and gruesome! Always showing a perverse bloody sensuality, always showing bloodsucking as a sexual climax action, the movie reach unrestrained and rampant orgasmic climax.
