The Addiction (1995)

We celebrate 25 years of Abel Ferrara's philosophical take on the vampire with a deep dive into his film The Addiction.

Part of our new series devoted to exploring the vampire in horror cinema, in this episode we jump ahead into the 1990s to celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the most interesting, moodiest films about vampires ever made: Abel Ferrara's The Addiction (1995), starring Lili Taylor, Christopher Walken and Annabella Sciorra. 

Joining us in this episode is writer and curator Tara Judah.

This season is made possible with the support of Arrow Video. This week's pick from their vast catalogue is The Addiction, re-released just this year in a stunning 4K restoration.

Produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya
