Hey there all you Voracious Vampire Veterans !!
Axemasters back in the dungeon with an Oldie thats a bit Moldy , but its Still a Goldie !!!! The Blood sucking classic ..........Near Dark !! Bbrrrrr !
Heres the story line in a nut shell ...............
|"Jesus ! This fricken razor burn is killing me !"|
|"I'm on fire for you Woman !!"|
|"should have used the 60 sunblock dam it !!"|
Director Kathryn Bigelow( Hurt Locker , Point Break) does a good job of bringing a sense of desperation into the lives (or unlives!) of the vamps in this flick . Also interesting to note , is that the Vampires in Near Dark look just like you and I ! No makeup or pointy teeth ! No bat like features . Which is more unsettling if you think about it , as they fit right in and won't stand out in a crowd ! (unless they decide to sunbathe at the beach that is !) The film did pretty well back in the day , but was definitely overshadowed at the box office by the other Vamp flick of 1987 ... The Lost Boys .
However , this is still a great old movie to watch . (even with Bill Paxtons acting !!)
So , remember fright fans ...... The Undead know no bounds in the distance they will travel .... to make tasty Meat snacks out of all of us !!
And we Must , AT ALL TIMES !! Remain Vigilant ...... To avoid being smothered in HP sauce !!
Until your morbid curiosity bring you to the Dungeon again ..........
Axemaster Signing off !
