VAMPIRES 13 • Cronos (1993) + Nadja (1994)

A discussion of two 90s vampire gems that sit between arthouse and horror.

Part of our new series devoted to exploring the vampire in horror cinema, we discuss two odd vampire gems from the nineties that sit between horror and arthouse.  

First up, Guillermo del Toro's debut feature Cronos (1993), a timeless vampire film that never actually uses the 'vampire' word. And we go peak nineties indie with Nadja (1994), which features an amazing soundtrack, cast and bonus cameo from executive producer David Lynch. 

Joining us in this episode is Zena Dixon, Editor-in-Chief of Real Queen of Horror, to discuss these two oddball vampire gems.
