Near Dark

Kathryn Bigelow’s severely underrated vampire film, Near Dark, follows a ruthless family of nomadic vampires. There’s nary a cape or exotic accent amongst the bloodsuckers, who behave like junkies out for a fix. Darker, grittier, and more grounded in real-life horror than most vampire tales, Near Dark presents a hazy, brutal world akin to a horror-western — far from the typical romantic tableaux we’re used to.
