The film that Time Magazine called “the all-time teenage vampire love story,” Near Dark, comes to Blu-ray for the first time from Lionsgate.  From acclaimed director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and starring three-time Golden Globe® winner Bill Paxton (HBO’s “Big Love”) and Adrian Pasdar (TV’s “Heroes”), Near Dark has been hailed as “outrageous and poetic” (The Washington Post), “scary and erotic” (Chicago Reader) and “a terrifying ride to the edge of darkness” (Time Out London). In addition, the film’s fated lovers – one a vampire (Jenny Wright) and the other a human (Pasdar) – were recently named to Entertainment Weekly’s list of the “20 Greatest Vampires.” Coinciding with the theatrical release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Near Dark makes its Blu-ray debut this November in 1080P High Definition Widescreen with 5.1 DTS-HD Master audio.  

Special features include audio commentary with director Kathryn Bigelow, “Living in Darkness – a making-of documentary and a deleted scene with commentary by Kathryn Bigelow.  

Country boy Caleb Colton (Pasdar) whittles away the quiet rural nights hunting local girls.  When he falls prey to the mysterious and beautiful Mae (Jenny Wright, The Lawnmower Man), Caleb unknowingly becomes the hunted.  Mae is no ordinary girl, she is part of an outlaw band of vampires and their love is about to lure him into a terrifying world of bloodlust, mayhem and absolute horror.  Will Caleb pay the ultimate price for love and eternal life or will he find a way to defeat the evil growing inside him each night…near dark?
