Rating: 2.5/4 -- ...an uneven yet passable horror effort. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Fans of vampire movies are not likely to see anything more graphic, extreme or twisted than THIRST.
3 stars out of 4 -- Movies exist to cloak our desires in disguises we can accept, and there is an undeniable appeal to THIRST.
It is a bloodstained horror movie, a dark comedy, a noirish psychodrama of crime and punishment, a melodrama of mad love, a freehanded literary adaptation and, of course, a vampire movie.
New York Times
[T]he film is tightly knitted with echoing motifs....[Kim Ok-vin's] eyes express everything between yes and no, and she is demonically able to shift through a whole lexicon of contradictory emotions in one blink.
3 stars out of 5 -- [A] ripe stew of horror, erotica and tragedy. It's scandalously self-indulgent, but there's no denying its invention and visual power.
[A] 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 blood...
Los Angeles Times
[I]ts turgid pace creates a queasy fascination all its own, drawing viewers into an ever-darkening locus of sin and obsession... -- Grade: B
Director Chan-Wook Park and his SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE star Kang-ho Song reunite for this thriller about a young priest who turns into a vampire. When the highly religious Sang-Hyun volunteers himself to be a test subject for a new vaccine, the procedure turns him into a vampire with little regard for his previous beliefs, meaning that his childhood friend's wife--and her neck-- are no longer off limits.
