5 Near perfectValentinian | 14/06/2009 | See all Valentinian's reviews (62)Top 100 DVD Reviewer Forget the limp wristed Twilight & it`s like, this is the benchmark by which all vampire movies are measured. It`s a lean, mean, nasty piece of work without compromise for the squeamish & those who like their undead to be fashion conscious romantics.Led by Civil War veteran Jesse, a band of vicious drifters travel the back roads in a blacked out van in search of fresh meat to sustain their way of death.This stylish, original & ferociously violent movie shows them kill without mercy or remorse. Yet, when one of their own falls for a country boy, their existence begins to unravel in a nightmare of bloody carnage & horror. Near Dark is unequaled in it`s genre as THE stand alone classic. Terrifying, atmospheric, ultraviolent & effortlessly cool. Highly recommended.
