Forgotten Horror Flashback: Near Dark

Near Dark - Forgotten Cinema Podcast

Original Blog Post: October 2, 2019 - The very first episode of Forgotten Horror was a good one. A Vampire Western!


Set your podcast to “spooky” because the Mikes are doing an entire month of horror themed episodes!

In this episode, Mike Field and Mike Butler sink their teeth into the 1987 neo-noir, western, vampire flick, Near Dark, starring Adrian Pasdar, Lance Henriksen, and Bill Paxton.  Written and directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

Our frightfully insightful hosts dissect the film's impact on modern-day vampire films, character motivations and how much control a director may give their actors to shape their characters. The Mikes also discuss how the cinematography and score help to set a very distinct style for the film.

So grab your Necronomicon and a cup of Type 0+, please notice there are no exits, and no running from….Forgotten Horror!!!
