UNITED STATES | 94 minutes | 1987

The 30th anniversary of a Western with vampires. A chance to see the late Bill Paxton again and discover some early Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty,
The Hurt Locker). In the Oklahoma heartland, a farmer falls in love with a girl. When her kiss turns to a bite, a blood-splattered nocturnal odyssey ensues. In 1987, before she became the queen of action films and political diatribes, Kathryn Bigelow directed this rural vampire Western, an explosive hybrid that signalled good things to come.
