The Addiction

3

A grad student sinks her teeth into life as a vampire

Given perverse energy by writer/director Abel Ferrara’s moody brew of arthouse pretension and sleazesploitation, this tasty horror sees Lili Taylor as the New York philosophy student chomped by vamp Annabella Sciorra who embraces her gory new life among the undead.

It doesn’t have much to say about the human evil (images of My Lai and Dachau are grubby low-blows) but there’s plenty of macabre pleasure in the lustrous black-and-white cinematography, a masterfully weird cameo from supervamp Christopher Walken and one hell of an orgy.
