The director has unique view on good and evil. Shouldn't simply look at it as a vampire story.

Thirst is good, insolent fun for about two-thirds of the way, before it stumbles and drowns in a pool of its own excess. Still, you can't help but admire a horror movie that prompts us to wonder how vampires with a surplus of blood got by before the advent of Tupperware. Full Review

Unfortunately, it is also less than the sum of its parts -- overly long, lacking in narrative momentum and too often choosing sensation over coherence. Full Review

Are you hungering for that rare vampire movie with serious intellectual heft, ravishing undead, biting passion and a healthy splash of irony as well as iron in all that spilled red blood? Wait no longer, Korean auteur Park Chan-wook's Thirst should satisfy. Full Review

Forget "Twilight." Fans of vampire movies are not likely to see anything more graphic, extreme or twisted than Thirst. Full Review
Derek Elley
An overlong stygian comedy that badly needs a transfusion of genuine inspiration. Full Review
