Near Dark (1987)

A great take on a vampire story with no fangs but lots of blood. The traveling vampire band that turns the movie’s protagonist are all truly sociopathic – even the vampire in a child’s body – and the sun burns them to a crisp, just like it should in real vampire stories. The vampire Mae (Jenny Wright) makes a truly seductive pale vampire of the night. The only negative to the story is that a “cure” is found in the end through the use of a blood transfusion. Vampirism shouldn’t be curable through more blood, but we’ll forgive them this one detail.
