    Walter Addiego San Francisco Chronicle

    I'll stick out my neck and say that Park Chan Wook's wildly gruesome Thirst is the most whacked-out version of an Emile Zola novel ever to reach the screen. show more

    Forget "Twilight." Fans of vampire movies are not likely to see anything more graphic, extreme or twisted than Thirst. show more

    Do you dig the current vampire craze? Do you love "Twilight" so much you'd die for it? Then skip South Korean writer-director Park Chan-wook's violent, bloody Thirst, a genre-bending - if not genre-destroying - foray into the vampire myth. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Stunning production quality and the story's extremity should arouse interest beyond the specialty Asian market. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Be warned: Thirst is one of those pictures that tacks on another chapter just when you think it’s wrapping up. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Movies exist to cloak our desires in disguises we can accept, and there is an undeniable appeal to Thirst. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Thirst is deliriously bonkers and keeps getting more so; you watch it holding your breath, waiting to see where Park will zigzag next. show more

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The summer's most lip-smacking movie treat. show more

    Film Threat

    A terrific film. Loosely based on Emile Zola's novel "Therese Raquin." show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    Taken as a whole, Thirst meanders too far from the crossroads of life and death; it gets outright dull in spots, although they are few and far between. show more

    I loved it!!! It's a light-hearted comedy with a happy ending. Sweet, romantic, funny as hell, it was just what the doctor ordered!

    I advise you to not waste money on this crapy off the wall comedy
