''Like a leper rotting in flesh let all avoid me. Like a cripple without limbs let me not move freely. Remove my cheeks, that tears may not move down them. Crush my lips and tongue, that I may not sin with them. Pull out my nails, that I may grasp at nothing. Let my shoulders and back be bent, that I may carry nothing. Like a man with a tumour in the head, let me lack judgment. Ravage my ... read more

This film I feel is breathing life back into the whole 'vampire' genre since it's horrible downgrade thanks to Twilight. I honestly was like 'Oh, another vampire film, I wonder if I'll give it more than 4 stars.'. Boy was I wrong. This film was awesome.

To start off the first few scenes really pull you in. A priest who is willingly giving himself for science? Sweet. After the first... read more

Sede de vampiros sedutores.

Pois os vampiros vieram com tudo mesmo, da série True Blood, passando por essas adaptações de livros, e até mesmo Willem Dafoe e Ethan Hawke protagonizaram um longa com essa temática, Daybreakers(2009), ainda sem previsão de ser lançado no Brasil. E no ano de 2009, vampiros chegaram até Cannes pelas lentes do cultuado Chan-Wook Park, e levou prêmio do Júri por “Sede de Sangue“.

From the acclaimed director of the global hit Old Boy comes a shockingly original vampire story with a chilling, erotic style. A blood transfusion saves the life of a priest, but also transforms him into a vampire. He struggles to control his insatiable thirst for blood until a love affair unleashes his darkest desires in deadly new ways. Thirst is a truly wicked love story that takes classic vampire lore to twisted new heights.

" "Twilight" for adults meaning that both horror and the sex goes all the way. It is also a lot more inventive in one single scene both creatively and visually than the entire 4 part saga put together. "

"Re-watch - Dec. 22nd The last time I watched Thirst was in the theatre, and in fact my copy hadn't been opened yet (which I usually do shortly after bringing a movie into my home). It's still a great film that mixes genre elements with a love story to deliver a fresh & rewarding experience. I love the contrast between our central characters, and Park earns some solid laughs along the way from the situations that arise. As usual the visual elements are especially strong too, and while the story "
