Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/04/1996
"...Stylish....Paxton brings rugged gusto and joie de gore to the afterlife..." -- Rating: B
Variety - 09/23/1987
"...NEAR DARK achieves a new look in vampire films. High-powered but pared down, slick but spare, this is something akin to THE BADLANDS of the supernatural..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/09/1987
"...It has force and passion....Bigelow packs the film with intense imagery, haunting shots..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2003
"...[With] potent performances....The magic-hour lustre of Adam Greenberg's cinematography and Tangerine Dream's propulsive score are other highlights..."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "NEAR DARK has a fresh approach for a vampire movie, exploring the point of view from the outsiders looking in..."

Product Description:

A young cowboy is seduced by a new girl in town only to find out he has been kissed by a vampire. Slowly turning into a creature of the night, he is persuaded to join up with the girl and a roaming band of ghouls. But when his own father and sister become targets in the vampires' endless search for 'food,' he is forced to choose between loyalty to the vampires, or loyalty his own family. NEAR DARK is a stylish and brutal mixture of horror, western, and action conventions from director Kathryn Bigelow (STRANGE DAYS) that ranks among the best vampire movies ever made.
