Visible crew/equipment: When Caleb punches the driver guy in the bar, the guy (who has now been replaced by a stuntman) goes flying backwards and lands on the pool table. When this happens, a wire can be seen on the stuntman, pulling him back and guiding his movement.
A mid-western farm boy (Pasdar) reluctantly becomes a member of the undead when a girl (Wright) he meets turns out to be part of a band of southern vampires who roam the highways in stolen cars. Part of his initiation includes a bloody assault on a hick bar.
Trivia: When Caleb attempts to leave the gang for the first time, just as he gets to the bus station you can see a cinema behind him that is playing Aliens (1986). Near Dark was released a year after Aliens and it shares most of the same cast. The director of Near Dark, Kathryn Bigelow, was also married to Aliens director James Cameron at the time. (00:22:28)
