A farm boy reluctantly becomes a member of the undead when a girl he meets turns out to be part of a band of vampires who roam the highways in stolen cars.
Thirty years on, and _Near Dark_ still holds up. A young Bill Paxton steals the show as a Texas vampire who's equal parts bikie and cowboy, even amongst such stars as Lance Henriksen and Adrian Pasdar. One of the most influential vampire films of all time, it's vibrations can still be felt in the monster movies of today, and while that's not always a good thing, it's noteworthy, and _Near Dark_ in and of itself is a great Southern Gothic tale for the modern world. _Final rating:★★★½ - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
