Near Dark is an obscure vampire flick that both never uses the word “vampire” and rescues the whole idea from the Rice-ian “goth moper.” Not quite perfect because some of the acting could be better, but some of it is truly inspired. It also hosts a mini-Aliens reunion with Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, and Jenette Goldstein. Also a small role by Trancers’ “Jack Deth,” Tim Thomerson. Good to see it getting its due 15 years later with a double-DVD special edition.
