Terror Tuesday Report – Near Dark

The Film

For horror aficionados, vampire movies have a long history of being hit or miss. For every Dracula or Thirst, there are a dozen cheap knockoffs. And let’s not even get started on that Twilight nonsense. Back in 1987 a vampire movie appeared on the screen and instantly became a classic with movie fans, grossing $32 million dollars and spawning two sequels. That movie is The Lost Boys. The biggest shame about that film, while it’s certainly entertaining and retains a special place in my heart, is that it overshadowed a much better movie, released months later and directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who would later go on to direct the Oscar winning The Hurt Locker. If you count yourself a horror fan you owe it to yourself to track down and watch Near Dark, Bigelow’s third film and one that we had the pleasure of seeing in glorious 35mm at Terror Tuesday.
