This is one of those cult classic vampire movies that always hides just under the radar. The plot centers around Caleb (Adrian Pasdar) whose life changes forever after an encounter with a seductive lady named Mae. She turns him into a vampire and his assimilation with her vampire posse is troublesome when he won’t kill to drink the sweet nectar of the veins. Eventually, Caleb’s dad and sister rescue him and are able to reverse the vampire hold on Caleb.
The motley group of vamp outlaws is led by Jesse (Lance Henriksen). They go after Caleb and his family in a showdown of epic proportions.
Bill Paxton is great as the psycho vampire Severen. He sells the ultimate badass character with such ease.
The music was done by Tangerine Dream and adds the synth atmosphere of a vampire western in the 80s.
One thing that bothered me was how abruptly it concluded. It definitely felt like the end, but it didn’t give the climax enough time to breathe before the credits rolled.
