Thirsty Thursdays Feature | A Part of Music Box of Horrors: Dawn of the Drive-In Presented by Shudder 

Produced by David Lynch’s longtime collaborator Mary Sweeney and featuring Lynch in a minor role as a morgue attendant, Nadja does for vampire movies what Twin Peaks did for the primetime soap. Set in an alienated midnight Manhattan captured in moody black and white, Nadja stars Romanian actress Elina Löwensohn as the title character, the gorgeously detached daughter of the infamous Count Dracula who sees her father’s second death by wooden stake as an opportunity for a new life. But fate isn’t so easy to shake in this hip, postmodern take on the Dracula legend featuring the euphoric sounds of Portishead and My Bloody Valentine.
