Trailers from Hell: Karyn Kusama on Kathryn Bigelow's 'Near Dark' -- Cowgirls, Vampires and Flaming Flesh!

8 August 2012 11:28 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Kathryn Bigelow Week" continues at Trailers from Hell. Director Karyn Kusama introduces Bigelow's 1987 vampire Western "Near Dark." As Kusama puts it, "That concept had been pretty much unexplored." For her second film, director Kathryn Bigelow's original intention had been to make a revisionist western, but when it became apparent nobody was funding horse operas in 1987 she and co-writer Eric Red decided to turn their project into a genre hybrid--a vampire western. Aside from Curse of the Undead (1959), Billy the Kid Meets Dracula and Jesse James vs. Frankenstein's Daughter (both 1966), that concept had been pretty much unexplored.  Boxoffice returns were unexciting, but it found an appreciative audience on video. A modern remake co-written by Bigelow started shooting in 2007 but remains uncompleted, having been put on hold due to its perceived similarity to the Twilight series. A far cry »
