Great movie. Not so great blu-ray transfer

on 3/13/2012

I've always liked this Vampire movie and was looking forward to the HD resolution of BlueRay. Although the quality was a step better than standard, it was obvious that no attempt was made to re-master the original. The video was slightly grainy, but still better than a standard DVD. You'll like Bill Paxton in an early role for him and everybody has to enjoy Lance Henrickson? Wait for a digitally remastered version. Read More

Editors Note
Note A young cowboy is seduced by a new girl in town only to find out he has been kissed by a vampire. Slowly turning into a creature of the night, he is persuaded to join up with the girl and a roaming band of ghouls. But when his own father and sister become targets in the vampires' endless search for 'food,' he is forced to choose between loyalty to the vampires, or loyalty his own family. NEAR DARK is a stylish and brutal mixture of horror, western, and action conventions from director Kathryn Bigelow (STRANGE DAYS) that ranks among the best vampire movies ever made.
Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "...Stylish....Paxton brings rugged gusto and joie de gore to the afterlife..." -- Rating: B 10/04/1996 pp.70-1
Variety "...NEAR DARK achieves a new look in vampire films. High-powered but pared down, slick but spare, this is something akin to THE BADLANDS of the supernatural..." 09/23/1987
Los Angeles Times "...It has force and passion....Bigelow packs the film with intense imagery, haunting shots..." 10/09/1987 p.C10
Sight and Sound "...[With] potent performances....The magic-hour lustre of Adam Greenberg's cinematography and Tangerine Dream's propulsive score are other highlights..." 10/01/2003 p.74
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "NEAR DARK has a fresh approach for a vampire movie, exploring the point of view from the outsiders looking in..." 03/01/2007 p.124
