Movie Quote(s):
  • Caleb Colton: I sure haven't met any girls like you. Mae: No. No, you sure haven't.
  • Severen: Cut the shit. I know you're awake. I can smell it.
  • Bartender: What you people want? Jesse: Just a couple more minutes of your time, about the same duration as the rest of your life.
  • Mae: There's somethin' I want to show you. [Caleb and Mae get off the truck] Caleb Colton: There's somethin' you want to show me? Mae: Yeah. The night. Caleb Colton: What about it? Mae: It's dark. Caleb Colton: I noticed. Mae: It's also bright. It'll blind you. Caleb Colton: I can't see. Mae: Well, listen. Do you hear it? Caleb Colton: I'm listenin'. I don't hear nothin'. Mae: Listen hard. Do you hear it? Caleb Colton: Hear what? Mae: The night, it's deafening.
  • Loy Colton: Caleb, those people back there, they wasn't normal. Normal folks, they don't spit out bullets when you shoot 'em, no sir.
Movie Trivia:
  • Unusually for a vampire movie, the word "vampire" is never mentioned.
  • The writer and director both were intent on making a Western but realized that the interest in the Western genre at the time was almost non-existent, so it was recommended that they mix genres. Since the horror genre was in vogue at the time, the two decided to make a Horror Western.
  • As Caleb staggers through town, just before the bus stop scene - the cinema behind him in showing Aliens (1986) which also featured Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and Jenette Goldstein.
  • In the scene where Caleb lets the young cowboy from the bar get away, a billboard can be seen in the background spray paint with "Bill + Louise". Bill Paxton, who plays Severen, is married to Louise Newbury.
  • Was the last movie produced and released by DEG (DeLaurentiis Entertainment Group) as the studio went bankrupt. As a result, the film did not receive much publicity during its release in the fall of 1987 which lead, in turn, to its box office failure.
