Best Vampire Ever Made.

There have been a lot of vampire movies made over the decades --a lot. And a lot of them have been very good & a few of them have been great, but I have no problem naming this as the best of the genre.
Kathryn Bigelow blazed onto my radar 20+ years ago with this vampire/western/biker horror-drama.
A great cast led by Bill Paxton & Lance Hendriksen giddily propel a great story that adds poignancy to all the blood that is spilled here. It is highlighted by some memorable set pieces that are kinetic as you'll ever see.
After seeing this film you knew that Bigelow would one day win an Oscar.
