To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie. Still, I remember it very well. Indeed, after watching ‘Bad Lieutenant’ back in the 90’s, I became a huge fan of Abel Ferrara’s work and this movie was therefore definitely a high priority for me.

A college girl majoring in philosophy is bitten by a vampire and reassesses life from a new perspective of blood addiction. The Addiction is an intelligent interpretation of the genre.

" Date: 10/22/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in over 15 years and I did want to revisit it to see if I still enjoy the movie or not. I just bought the Blu-ray released by Arrow Video and it came in the mail today. After revisiting this movie, I still love it. The Addiction is the best vampire movie of the 90s in my opinion. The black and white cinematography is absolutely beautiful because it makes the movie feel so atmospheric. The use of dark lighting really hel"

Well, even though it turned out to be watchable, I have to admit that I had a rather hard time to really connect with the damned thing. I mean, it was not bad, it was even pretty neat that Ferrara would go for a vampire tale and there was a really nice cast involved (Lili Taylor, Christopher Walken, Annabella Sciorra, Edie Falco). Unfortunately, the whole thing was terribly murky and I have to admit that I didn't care much for the characters and what they were going through. Actually, from this point on, except for the amazin” read more

30 From 95: My Favorite Films From 1995 (30 movies items)

"The subject of addiction has been the theme to many movies. And so has the subject of vampires. This one tackles both. In lovely black and white with a few interludes into philosophy.... which, at certain points, kind of left me screaming for blood. But in the end, the climax resolved itself in manner that found this story back into the genre of horror, with a dash of "brains" added into the mix. Which was quite nice. And when I say "nice". I mean nice by vampire standards. "
