  1. Django's rating of the film Near Dark

    This movie has held up very well over the years and serves as a real tonic to the non-vampire vampire movie drivel we've all been forced fed of late. An original story well directed and performed and very well photographed makes for a solid entertainment.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Near Dark

    Mythe dépoussiéré. Séduisant... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Steve G.'s rating of the film Near Dark

  5. bryanvmh's rating of the film Near Dark

    Bummer of an ending, and Adrian Pasdar isn't the best lead, but I like the vampire as queer destructivity thing the movie has going.

  6. dave gunn's rating of the film Near Dark

    A western-style vampire movie that does its own thing. It was awesome. The film layering and practical effects used to simulate the sun burning them was creative and impressive.

  7. Renton47's rating of the film Near Dark

    A little underwritten on the character front, but then you can pretty much coast along with a cast this watchable. Stretching for something great with those shots of oil wells, the draining of the American West, and the bar scene - a relenting to violent cinema that still shocks. Succumbing more to nihilism might have made something great, gets a bit awash in motive. Gorgeous scenery.

  9. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film Near Dark

    That bar scene will forever be in my memory. I loved every second of this movie. What a shame its not more well know.

  10. Balthaz21's rating of the film Near Dark

  11. James Roth's rating of the film Near Dark

    As a fan of 80's horror films I am always ready to watch a film like this to wind down. It would be wrong to say this films is especially great but it isn't without merit. There is some really nice imagery throughout,some genuinely tense moments and a solid romantic core. Really good popcorn movie.

  12. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Near Dark

    This is definitely Bigelow' best early work. Great eerie atmosphere and interesting take on the vampire mythology. Always good to see Bill Paxton play the same character AGAIN....

  13. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Near Dark

    2-3. A simple story about a simple, pure-hearted boy who redeems a lustful, dangerous vampire girl (and saves her from her twisted family). Has some story issues, and it's hurt a bit by some of its trappings (that synthetic 80s soundtrack does not scream 'western' or 'vampires'), but it has a sense of fun enough to give it value as a contemporary watch.

  14. Ethan's rating of the film Near Dark

    This is what would happen if Twilight was badass. Kathryn Bigelow delivered one of the most interesting entries into vampire lore.

  15. mlstrx's rating of the film Near Dark

    3.5. good, but these characters are so annoying

  16. nessmj's rating of the film Near Dark

    quite a few rough moments. though, all in all not a bad early attempt from Bigelow.

  17. lucia lurzo's rating of the film Near Dark

    3 e 1/2. allora ste mezze stelle quando arrivano?

  18. astygianelysium's rating of the film Near Dark

    good kitsch lightly lifted by sublime scenes (the house with bulletholes of light will stay remembered a long while)

  19. eek's rating of the film Near Dark

    Bill Paxton is awesome.

  20. Cody Hoskins's rating of the film Near Dark

    Kathryn Bigelow crafted a truly captivating and atmospheric poem that mixes Western melodrama and Gothic horror in reinventing vampire legends that echoes the tone of Blood Simple, Duel, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with less shock value and more poetic imagery about a soul lost in a web of terror and romance that has no certainty of escape.

  21. Ahmet UJeschk's rating of the film Near Dark

    Although an amateur-style ending ( may be it was intentional), I like this movie with a woman-hand production :)

  22. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Near Dark

    Great atmosphere, pacing, teen passion pathos, late '80s hairstyles, Bill Paxton -- it's like the cinematic equivalent of a Skipp & Spector novel: reliably lurid and weird, but built on believable bonds between characters that, you know, you actually care about. Not a masterpiece in absolute terms, but much more fun than lots of masterpieces.

  23. Linden_Watterson's rating of the film Near Dark

    Boy meets girl, girl is a vampire, boy must prove self to her vamp family, boy saves human family from vamp family, girl is cured... the end. This movie was literally directly across the hall from "Lost Boys" at my local theater. One is a classic, the other is a Joel Shumacher movie. This may be my favorite vampire movie.

  24. Sean's rating of the film Near Dark

    One of my favourite horror films, so atmospheric especially the score done by Tangerine Dream. Bill Paxton easily steals this film as the psycho vampire Severin and Lance Henrikson being the badass as always. It's a cult classic all the way through.
