In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Trailer Tuesdays: Near Dark

In keeping with Women In Horror Month, here's a trailer for a film from my favourite female director, Kathryn Bigelow.

This was her only foray into horror (with the 1989 Jamie Lee Curtis vehicle Blue Steel decidedly being a crime thriller) and it's still widely regarded as one of the best vampire films out there.

I love the look, the score by Tangerine Dream and writers Bigelow and Eric Red's unique contribution to vampire lore. It also, after their memorable appearances in 1986's Aliens (directed by Bigelow's future husband James Cameron), reunites Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton & Jenette Goldstein who shine as members of a nomadic band of vamps.
