Near Dark was ahead of its time, it's seems very contemporary for an 80s movie. Bill Paxton is deliciously evil. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow of the recently acclaimed The Hurt Locker. I haven't seen that in a while I might check it out again..
"Near Dark" is, far and way, the best vampire movie of the eighties.

It always bothered me that it was eclipsed by "The Lost Boys," commercially and in the popular imagination. "The Lost Boys" is certainly an entertaining film, but "Near Dark" is vastly better . . . .
