Near Dark

Near Dark is a 1987 horror film starring Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton and Adrian Pasdar. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, it tells the story of a yound midwestern farm boy named Caleb who gets seduced by a beautiful girl named Mae into a vicious nightlife of vampiric hell. What sets Near Dark apart from almost every other vampire flick ever is that the v word is never spoken, theres no fangs bared transformations, but you know whats going on. only vampires burst into flame when exposed to sunlight, right? Bill Paxton gives the performance of a lifetime as pissed off Severin, whose dialogue during the bar scene is absolutely gold. this movie is probably my favorite modern day vampire movie, and here is the soundtrack to it by pioneering german electronic masters Tangerine Dream.
