Remember the awesome, R-rated vampire flick from the 1987 — Near Dark.
Just this week Lions Gate re-released the DVD with a new cover, and if you didn’t know any better, you might think this is a spin-off of the Twilight Saga. I’m wondering if whoever designed this new cover has even watched Near Dark. Here is the new cover:

Near Dark (new)

It looks like it had a bit of Twilight influence, don’t you think?

And for reference, here is the previous DVD cover of Near Dark:

Near Dark (old)

Country boy Caleb Colton (Adrian Pasdar) whittles away the quiet rural nights hunting local girls – but when he falls prey to the mysterious and beautiful Mae (Jenny Wright), Caleb unknowingly becomes the hunted. Mae is no ordinary girl, Caleb soon learns; 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?

Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Cast: Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein

    RT: @Skitchima: I'm the lone guy that didn't like HURT LOCKER lol! Bigelow gets a pass though because she made Near Dark and Point Break.

    @rj_tmc I know, I'm the lone guy that didn't like HL lol! Bigelow gets a pass though because she made Near Dark and Point Break.

    @ebertchicago Not a fan of Near Dark then, Roger? Still her greatest triumph as far as I'm concerned!
