80s Awesomeness! ~ 29


Probably one of the awesomest 80s movies, and vampire movies, ever, Near Dark. The thing is, the word vampire is never mentioned in the film. It's insinuated, sure, but you won't hear the word. And these guys don't have fangs. Quite possibly the ONLY vampires that can pass as vampires and not have fangs. Why? Because they don't need them. They will tear you to shit perfectly fine without them. Thanks.

It's a family of roving vampires that are constantly dirty and travel around in a beat up camper. The dainty chick falls for our dear Adrian Pasdar and before he knows it, he's starting to smoke in the sun. Literally. Sucks for him! The ending always has me laugh because in reality, it would kill anyone but it saves a couple of the characters and poof! Daywalkers again!

What pisses me off though, thanks to all of this Twishite, they've repackaged the DVD and Adrian bears a striking resemblance to sickly gray-looking Edward on the cover. I refuse to post it. Google it if you want to see it. Yeah, I get you're trying to cash in on the whole Twinut thing, guys, but Near Dark being anything like those glitterpires? Uh . . . if the Twiwards don't yak on their couches, they'll have nightmares for weeks. Bar scene, anyone? These are not "vegetarians" and they will gladly, and with much enthusiasm, kill you dead. You know, like vampires should.

Oh wow. I watched this movie for a film class once, and it stuck with me so I ended up buying my own copy, lol. It's disturbing, but strangely fascinating. I haven't watched Lost Boys but I think I really want to soon!

This movie is sooo good. I do not want to witness the catastrophe of the new repackaged DVD so I am not even going to google it. I will just stare at my copy!!!
