While scanning through old vampire movie titles I came across one I remember well, not because it was amazing, but because I hated it so much I never even bothered finishing it. However, this horrible film has stuck in my mind. Over ten years have passed since I watched The Addiction, and the hatred for it has lasted all this time.
The Addiction was released in 1995, yet for some reason it was in black and white. I saw it when I was around 13-years-old, which is a big reason why I hated it so much, because it is definitely NOT directed at younger audiences. It’s one of those dark, deep indie flicks that critics tend to love but average viewers hate, a film that a kid wouldn’t really understand. It tells the story of Kathleen, a New York anthropology grad student, who is turned into a vampire after getting bitten by one. She then tries to come to terms with her new lifestyle and her craving for human blood. One thing I remember most is that while the movie is packed full of vampires, it’s less about vampires and more about choices and morals. Blah.
If I watched this movie now, being an adult and all, would I like it? Hell to the no. I have very little interest in disturbing and pretentious indie flicks that bore more than they entertain. Not my cup of blood, which is why The Addiction continues to be my least favorite vampire film of all time.
Inspired by old memories of terrible movies, I’m here to ask you what your least favorite vampire movie is. After all, we talk about the great ones all the time, it’s only right to balance it out and share the bad ones.
So Dear Readers, what is your least favorite vampire movie and why?
