Near Dark (1987)

This is definitely one of the better vampire movies, especially considering it came out in the late '80s! It's sort of a creative take on the idea, we meet an average guy who happens to work on a farm who meets a nice young lady...who happens to be a part of a band of vampires! Her group lurk around the highways in stolen cars looking for fresh blood! The film is really entertaining and full of action (particularly the bar scene) and should really satisfy any horror fan. Also to be noted with a low budget this is really impressively made, and the cast does a great job too. Likely this one got overshadowed by "The Lost Boys", but I really think this one stands up and deserves more recognition!
