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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" Kathleen Conklin, a doctoral student in philosophy, finds herself with a new perspective on the nature of evil and humanity after being bitten by a vampire in New York CitY. Critics appreciated The Addiction for it’s take on vampires, and the use of drug addiction as a metaphor. The film’s soundtrack featured songs by Onyx, Schooly D, Cypress Hill, and others. It featured a early performance, by Edie Falco."

" 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).

" A recent college graduate gets a new outlook of life and begins the process of coming out of her shell after she is bitten by a female "Casonova".  But her new attitude of a thirst for answers also comes with a new thirst for blood. Art meets horror, philosophy meets fear in this independent intellectual interpretation to the genre. As the title suggests, the concept of consuming blood is presented here as a metaphor for addiction.     When it comes to what I like o"
