No wire work & magical effects,.. thank you. This good script is richly acted, and creates an engagingly 'realistic' vampire movie ! (...although I didn't buy the ending ?) The commentary by writer/director Katherine Bigelow is really worthwhile.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Vacuous, over-synthesized, over-moussed, '80s vampire crud. (And evidently plastic fangs would've put them way over-budget.) Insipid writing, dialogue, special effects, (smoking blankets?! -- lol), etc. Just plain bad. 1½ stars for the gorgeous Jenny Wright (Pink Floyd The Wall).

This moive is one of the best vampire movies ever made. I could watch it over and over again.

Awesome vampire movie. Love the western edge to it and I like how the vampires are hillbilly/white trash/outlaw types. And Adrian Pasdar is gorgeous!!!

This is the best vampire/biker/western film every made. It stars Lance Henriksen, the brilliant character actor from the Alien films. Plus Bill Paxton puts on one of the best performances of his career - "FingerLICKIN' good!" I love that this movie was directed by a woman - the amazing Katherine Bigelow who also directed Hurt Locker. This cult classic is a genre bending masterpiece.
