Near Dark Review


A small-town farmer's son reluctantly joins a traveling group of vampires after he is turned by a beautiful drifter.

Country boy Caleb Colton (Adrian Pasdar) likes troubling the local girls when he falls for mysterious and beautiful Mae (Jenny Wright). Caleb throws himself into the crazy world of some outlaw vampires. The utter question is if Caleb will embrace this new life as a vampire or defeat the outlaw vampires and still get the girl.

I felt as if I was really able to relate to Caleb and quickly got reeled into the vampire film. The cast of outlaw vampires was well planned with Lance Henriksen as Jesse Hooker playing the vampire leader and Bill Paxton as Severen, another crazy vampire.

I would definitely recommend Near Dark as a good vampire film to everyone to give it a chance.
