Near Dark

American Boogeymen

1987 · d. Kathryn Bigelow   Reviews
Starring Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henrikson, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein

Farmboy Caleb's (Adrian Pasdar) makeout session with enigmatic Mae (Jenny Wright) gets weird when she sinks her teeth into his throat. Soon he's drifting through the roadhouses, trailer parks, and lonesome highways of America with Mae's terrifying clan (including Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, and Jenette Goldstein), trying to resist his newfound craving for blood. Moody, gritty, and tender, Academy Award-winner Kathryn Bigelow's rarely screened solo debut may be the best vampire-western-road movie you've never seen.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Teenage Dreams, American Nightmares: Americana, Youth Culture, and the Horror Film, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Alice Bullitt, M.A.
