Bill Paxton is a great psycho, he is off the wall nuts and he looks to be having a great time doing it.

On some level Near Dark is interesting deviation from the usual sophisticated vampires but characters completely lack charisma (I hate most characters played by Bill Paxton).
Omnizoa
Fortunately this movie avoids total amorality by not insisting that Main Guy's new condition actually warrants killing and he refuses to kill at every opportunity, however we fall way short of the likes of Blade and Vampire Hunter D when he still thinks he can get in good with his confusing new vampire clan just by helping out and leeching on the blood they steal from others.
