Ok, so I'm quite a fan of a movie titled "The Addiction", from 1995 shot in black and white by Abel Ferrara, starring Christopher Walken.
"A New York anthropology grad student turns into a vampire after getting bitten by one, and then tries to come to terms with her new lifestyle and frequent craving for human blood. "
So the whole idea behind this movie is to portray Vampires in NewYorks as Heroin Addicts. They try to "score", they actually SHOT the blood with needles, etc... Walken is really cool in it, and it has this gloomy feeling, still not horror but really street/junky type. At one point, Walken portraying an elderly vampire is telling a younger one to read William Burroughs in order to understand what vampires are about.
Here how it looks like:
So now, for the thread.
Have you never felt like, as an heroin junkie, being a vampire ? I mean, the whole thing about living this wierd life, no sleep, awake at night asleep all day long, going througt shady places HORRIFIC stuff for your fix; The blood n needle thing but also this feeling that we know best here: the community
As vampires wd recognize themselves I guess, I can spot another addict in a subway or in the streets, and we almost have our own language, eye contact, ways of knowing what the other one is feeling ?
Also while high, you sometimes feel this rush, like magic or something, like now everything is possible, and only YOU know those esoterics secrets of pleasure...
And I'd add the relation with death and deceased ones...
Ok now back to my coffin
