With Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Tim Thomerson
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow

Released the same year as the more publicized glossy
Lost Boys (1987), this vampire flick has become a cult favourite for many. A gang of drifting vampires comprising many generations (its leader going as far back as the civil war), cause havoc wherever they go. When one girl in the pack falls for a young man and bites him without killing as she's supposed to, the struggle begins to incorporate him in the group. He is more than reluctant, especially when it comes to having to make his first kill to quench his burning thirst for blood. Amid the dramatic drive of the characters the action and bloody scenes are not neglected. All of the vampire myths get utilized with twists and alternatives. A very cool movie that deserved more publicity than it received.
PS. Contains three cast members from James Cameron's
