Plot Summary

Sensual vampire story stars rock legend David Bowie ("The Man Who Fell to Earth," "The Last Temptation of Christ") as an ailing centuries-old vampire whose fanged-lover, Catherine Deneuve ("Indochine," "Repulsion," "Belle de Jour"), seeks a new partner and seduces a mortal medical researcher (Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon -- "Dead Man Walking," "Stepmom," "The Client"). Directed by block-buster helmer Tony Scott ("Top Gun," "Crimson Tide," "Enemy of the State"). With Dan Hedaya ("Clueless," "The First Wives' Club," "Marvin's Room") and a cameo by Willem Dafoe ("The English Patient," "Platoon," "The Last Temptation of Christ").

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The movie reeks with chic, but never, for one minute, takes itself too seriously, nor does it ever slop over into camp. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Nov 18, 2008

Fresh: In his feature debut, director Tony Scott, brother of Ridley, exhibits the same penchant for eleborate art direction, minimal, humorless dialog and shooting in smoky rooms. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The Hunger is an agonizingly bad vampire movie, circling around an exquisitely effective sex scene. Sorry, but that's the way it is, and your reporter has to be honest. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The obsessive conjunction of lesbian sex and flowing blood suggests a deep-seated misogyny, but neither this nor any other theme is registered with enough clarity to offend. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Romance and Horror

Although this is a vampire flick, I've always considered more of a twisted romance film. Very posessive, very cannibalistic, its beautiful!!

Still new

When this came out NObody was taking these risks, not even in"horror". I dare say this is still sitting at an edge others haven't even found yet. Slow and even, not the flash and gore we expect today...

Great visual thriler

This is a poem of images, you won't forget Susan Sarandon and Catherine Denueve beuties also de music adapted for this film is gorgius, you will love it, don't miss it.
