When the viewer wants to know more about the people in the compelling images, the screen`s texture suddenly falls flat.

The scenes of the bullying are long and violent and bloody and boring.

Como terror focado em vampiros, empalidece diante de Garotos Perdidos, lançado no mesmo ano; como alegoria do submundo das drogas e de uma época em que o sexo se tornou letal, é óbvio e infantil. Como esta bobagem virou cult, não sei explicar.
| Original Score: 2/5

Lots of dull spots, a few effectively intense moments, and as much gore as the monster genre usually calls for nowadays.

You might call this the scattershot school of film making.

There isn't a movie out there that feels quite like Near Dark; it seems to personify its subject matter even as it transcends it.

This is on the whole a striking directorial debut, at once scary and erotic, with lots of sidelong touches in the casting, direction, and script.
May 17, 2004
The great Kathryn Bigelow made her solo directorial debut, and managed to emphasize the relationships between the characters while using the gory showstoppers as support.

An atmospheric and nightmarish vampire film...
September 26, 2007
High-powered but pared down, slick but spare, this is a tale that introduces the unearthly into the banality of rural American existence.

It's definitely worth a rent.

A subtle study in the seductiveness of evil and a terrifying ride to the edge of darkness.

An unusually intelligent little gem that stands head and fangs above other blooksucking flicks.
