Pray for daylight in Kathryn Bigelow’s cult classic vampire western NEAR DARK. A 35mm presentation!

The vampires in Near Dark certainly aren’t your fancy aristocratic elite living in a distant castle. Oh no. Instead they’re a gun-toting gang that roams the American Southwest. This “family” isn’t so into the new guy Caleb who’s been “turned” by the alluring Mae rather than killing him. The fact that caleb can’t really make a kill or pull his own weight definitely makes matters worse for the group. Still, it’s not easy being undead and so ensues a violent unfolding of action that has made an initially overlooked film into an eternal vampire classic.

Part of Nitehawk’s BITE THIS August midnite series.
