The Addiction


Rare Archive Print!

(1995) dir Abel Ferrara w/Lili Taylor, Annabella Sciorra, Edie Falco, Christopher Walken [82 min; 35mm]
Legendary New York City bad boy director Abel Ferrara (whose MS. 45 also graces this calendar) directs Lili Taylor as Kathleen, a woman who is confronted by a vampire on the way home one night. Having been bitten, she finds herself slowly turning into a creature that fears the sun and craves human blood. As the title suggests, Ferrara’s film equates a vampire’s need for blood with drug addiction, a point brought fully home by the appearance of Christopher Walken as a ‘recovering’ bloodsucker who tries to put Kathleen on the right path.
