    Here are our candidates!


    Near Dark (1987)


    Director: Kathryn Bigelow

    Stars: Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen

    Premise: A small-town farmer's son reluctantly joins a traveling group of vampires after he is turned by a beautiful drifter.

    Why @MusterX picked it: Bill Paxton as a vampire, what more do I need to say?

    Trailer:






    Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

    Director: Francis Ford Coppola

    Stars: Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins

    Premise: The vampire comes to England to seduce a visitor's fiancée and inflict havoc in the foreign land.

    I did. It was an atrocious decision but what can I do. These days I usually just save up films and splurge over a day or two where i'm free, too hard to get it in weekly unless its a film im REALLY interested in

    Now vote for Near Dark, I would hate for you to be a pussy

    Well as I said, you are always welcome to join in on the discussions whenever you feel compelled to do so. I'm still waiting for your take on Spring Breakers.

    As for my vote, the film I voted for is a film that I've been meaning to watch for over 20 years. This seems like as good of time as any.

    Yeah ill up that thread when I get around to Spring Breakers. Probably will be soon when screeners haven't leaked (yet) this year

    That basically narrows it down to two choices, and it better not be fucking Dracula

    1. Don't talk about what people voted for/should be voting for. It's against the rules and makes you look impudent.

    2. Since you've already broached the subject. Take another gander at what I was voting for.

    @jeicex can we have Joseph Budden's postings deleted from this thread? He's not a member and his posts only drag down the quality of the discussion and go against set regulations.

    The fact that you did not spin this sentence into some sort of clunky Vampire pun disappoints me greatly:p

    Yes, a movie club. The highest level of professionalism only, or else I can count on europe to cry about it. Got it

    Europe is right. You can't announce the votes and @jeicex really will legit get up in your ass about it.

    With that said, to echo your own sentiment, I'll do what the fuck I want.
