Both are vampire movies. Both are set in contemporary Manhattan. Both involve central female protagonists turned into bloodsuckers by stalking female vampires. Both are low-budget indie productions filmed in black and white. And both Michael Almereyda's "Nadja" and Abel Ferrara's "The Addiction" are being released in big-city markets like Los Angeles and New York by October Films--within weeks of each other. "Nadja" opened locally Sept. 1 and "The Addiction" will be unleashed Oct. 6.
