I must salute MSNBC's movie editor, Paige Newman, for her bravery - or foolishness. Late last week, she wrote a column on 6 non-traditional-should-see vampire movies; that had to have been a daunting task, knowing that it would bring out the partisan in vampire and horror buffs. Still, it's not a bad point of departure (even if she seems to miss some of the deliberate Southern Gothic-ness of Near Dark). Her list?
Near Dark (1987)
Innocent Blood (1992)
The Hunger (1983)
Of the list, I haven't seen either of the last two - Ultraviolet
sounds like a lot of fun, a
miniseries she describes as "X-Files meets Dracula".
So - there's the list. Anyone got anything they'd like to add? Remove? Second? Terminate with extreme prejudice?
