A Month of Horror: Day 10

10 October

Movie: Near Dark
Book:
Vampires Don't Sparkle

Sparkly vampires got you down? Don't worry, we've got the cure for you with today's selections. Near Dark features some of the unsparkliest vampires in the history of cinema. Lance Henricksen leads an all star cast as the head of a family of vampires who have been traveling the west Texas area since "the war."1 Amazing cinematography, a wonderful script, and one of my all time favorite movie deaths.2


I've said it many times, horror people have the biggest hearts. The proceeds from
Vampires Don't Sparkle go towards cancer research, so not only do you get to read some of the biggest names in horror like J. F. Gonzales, Tim Waggoner, Elizabeth Massie, Lucy A. Snider, and Gary A. Braunbeck, the money you spend on the purchase goes to help people fighting real horrors.

Caleb Colton: South?
Jesse: We lost.

2. I'll give you a hint, it involves a spur.
