Habit is a 1997 vampire horror film starring Larry Fessenden, who also wrote and directed the film. It received rave reviews at the Chicago and Los Angeles International Film Festivals.[1] It is a remake of Fessenden's 1985 film of the same title.


Sam is a self-destructive, vaguely artistic New York bohemian who has recently lost his father and his long-time girlfriend. At a Halloween party he meets a mysterious, beautiful, androgynous woman named Anna. He embarks on a kinky, sex-charged relationship with her; but soon he suffers from a mysterious illness, and eventually comes to believe that Anna is a vampire.
