“It’s finger-lickin’ good!” Severen (Bill Paxton) gives an accurate description of how human blood tastes. Or so we assume. After being tossed to the side upon it’s initial release, Near Dark is basically a western with a horror sheen. Caleb Cotton (Adrian Pasdar) is a modern hombre who gets mixed up with a group of marauders with a thirst for blood. The Grue Crew talk about all this gem live from DragonCon with a very special guest: C. Robert Cargill, writer of Sinister, Doctor Strange and the recently released book Sea of Rust! Now *that* sounds finger lickin’ good to us!

Others say it ratchets things up to the next level. Where does this crew stand? Tune in to find out!
