    Kathryn Bigelow`s cult classic 1987 vampire movie. When country boy Caleb Colton (Adrian Pasdar) meets Mae (Jenny Wright) he immediately falls for her angelic charms. During their romantic encounter, Mae gives Caleb a nip on the neck before mysteriously disappearing. Alone and slightly confused, by the time dawn breaks, Caleb is suffering from severe stomach cramps and a serious aversion to sunlight. While struggling to make his way back to his father`s farm, he is abducted by a group of strangers. The kidnappers turn out to be Mae`s "family", a band of vampires who intend to feast on Caleb before he turns into one of them. Already desperately in love, Mae convinces her family to give Caleb the chance to prove himself as one of their own...
