After the Academy Award winning Zero Dark Thirty industry veteran Katheryn Bigelow finally made it to the forefront of the industry, but Bigelow's first bonafide hit was an awesomely atmospheric nail-biter (or should we say neck-biter?) about a nomadic gang of vampires called Near Dark. The chilling film is beautifully shot, features breakout performances from character actors like Bill Paxton and Lance Henriksen and all in all it's one of the most clever and exciting entries to the vampire genre to be found from the 80s, or any other decade for that matter!
