The new “Near Dark?” Wyrmwood Director’s new Vamp Flick already being compared to Cult Classic!

A bold statement to make, but “DARK WEST” an upcoming Vampire flick which is to be directed by Kiah Roache-Turner and written by Richard Kadrey, is already being compared to the 1987 Vampire classic Near Dark – yes that will either get you ever excited or have you shaking your head with doubts – but hey, we are a sucker for those who bite, so lets pencil us down as a tiny bit exciting.

Chris Goldberg’s Winterlight Pictures has already optioned “Dark West” and Roache-Turner is eyeing to direct the film in his native Australia. Kadrey is also working on turning the concept into a graphic novel.

The brief summary we have is this:

“Dark West” is a vampire revenge thriller set on the highways of Texas that follows two car thieves who accidentally T-bone a pair of vampires in the middle of the night. The story is in the vein of the classic ’80s horror films “The Hitcher” and Kathryn Bigelow’s “Near Dark.”


Roache-Turner is currently working on the sequel “Wyrmwood Apocalypse,”, with the original becoming a massive cult fav since its release in 2015.

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
