Near Dark

Starring the late Bill Paxton (Aliens, One False Move), Kathryn Bigelow’s second feature is an original, 80s-style take on the vampire film genre. The film focuses on a pack of road-tested vampires who initiate a farm boy (Paxton) into their crew, perpetrating mayhem at night while driving from town to town in vehicles with blacked-out windows by day. “Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark remains singular, a moody, brilliant fusion of vampire iconography and American Westerns, served up with a distinctly modern bloodletting and romantic sensibility that’s right out of the Bram Stoker tradition.”-Scott Tobias, The A.V. Club
