1987 | 35MM | USA | D: Kathryn Bigelow   

The breakout feature from Oscar-winning writer-director Kathryn Bigelow is an atmospheric nightmare, blending cutting-edge horror, gothic romance and elements of the Western. 
 
Cowboy Caleb (Adrian Pasdar) meets the mysterious Mae (Jenny Wright) at a bar, and the two have an immediate attraction. But when Mae reveals she is a vampire, the relationship gets complicated...  
 
Caleb must contend with Mae's gang of vampires, including the evil and unpredictable Severen (Bill Paxton), and choose between his new love and his former family. 
 
Near Dark’s unique take on the vampire genre, brooding atmosphere and tantalising mise-en-scène has solidified its place in the horror canon.  
 
Near Dark provides further proof that horror can quit the B-grade closet but still deliver the chills and thrills to satisfy’ – The Sydney Morning Herald 
  
Presented on a 35mm film print from the NFSA collection.
