The film is interesting in that the word "vampire" is never spoken, despite the obvious nature of the characters in it, whose vampiric nature is abbreviated to a blood dependency and a severe vulnerability to sunlight. No fangs, no turning into bats, and no bad Romanian accents are in evidence. The vampires use guns to get their point accross and duct tape and black spray paint to keep the sunlight out of their Winnebago.
The director is Kathryn Bigelow, who shortly thereafter married and divorced James Cameron. Terrifically eccentric performances are given by Henriksen and Paxton and the bar scene is not to be missed.
