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:
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:
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?
