Vampires is great! A wonderful mix of action and vampire mythology. It owes a lot to From Dusk 'til Dawn though.

I saw Vampires as part of a double bill on TV with Near Dark.  I even recorded them to VHS and watched them as double bills again afterwards.  Nevertheless, Near Dark is the only one I remember anything from.

If anyone was inspired by my cheerleading a few pages back for Hammer's THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN (1957), The Horror Channel (Sky 317) are playing it tomorrow at 6.50pm, and of course an hour later on +1.

If you fancy a long Sunday indulgence, it's being shown in a double bill with CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954), which starts at 5.20pm (and an hour later on +1, obvs).

Party Girl was a cool film back in the day. When I started being a librarian and had recently discovered filsm by the like of Hal Hartley the idea of cool indie film goddess Parker Posey playing a ... well party girl becalmed by the world of librarianship, well the thought was begiling, the characters cool and kooky. This film just dripped cool.

For whatever reason I've not seen it since then (late 90s) and so was very happy to stumble across it on Amazon the other day... alas time has not done it well... or maybe it just doesn' fit into modern me. The party scene seems a bit forced and false (or maybe just don't remember the best parties I went to honestly?... or would hate them now?) no one master Dewey that quick and easy. For all the 90s indie cool dripping from the movie its story is actually pretty dull and stodgy.

Extreme character finds redemption and a different way to live in an unexpected place. They struggle with their mentor and eventually disaster. They fall onto hard times and suddenly all that effort to change seems lost BUT loe at the end joy is found, mentor / character who changes them forgives them and to a degree their different world learn to co-exist. WAHEY.

Its essentially Kindergarden Kop!

So yeah I found this a bit of a chore and now I worry about watching a Hal Hartley film again!

This is the correct answer.
