I'm hip to the camp on MV and I found the total JC violence in his Vampires tiring after a while although the plot held for me. My Fav in a while is Shadow of the Vampire, Wilem never looked so good! I'll have to check out AD soon. Thanks for that.

I thought it was better than both. Modern Vampires was a bit too campy for my taste. (If it's the movie I'm thinking of. Kim Cattrall was in it, and the main character's name was Dallas, right?) I enjoyed JC's Vampires, but Near Dark was better.

Is it better than Modern Vampires or JCs' Vampires?

Fantastic movie. Vampires didn't all live in castles or expensive apartments in Manhattan's upper west side.

NEAR DARK is a punk vampire masterpiece.

Also, Nic Roeg's mindfucker
DON'T LOOK NOW has finally been released on dvd.

Coming to DVD Tuesday. IMO, one of the better modern vampire films. Well shot. A couple of plot holes, but all in all a pretty good effort. Anyone else care?
