Near Dark

Near Dark is a 1987 American vampire Western horror film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by her and Eric Red. The story follows a young man in a small midwestern town who becomes involved with a family of nomadic American vampires. Starring then little-known actors Adrian Pasdar and Jenny Wright, the film was part of a revival of serious vampire movies in the late 1980s. The film did poorly at the box office upon release but subsequently was viewed favorably by critics. It has a sizable cult following. ... more on Wikipedia
