Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 07/01/2009
"[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."
Box Office - 07/23/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here is no denying that THIRST casts a hypnotic visual spell over its vampiric goings-on."
Los Angeles Times - 07/31/2009
"[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..."
USA Today - 07/31/2009
"Fans of vampire movies are not likely to see anything more graphic, extreme or twisted than THIRST."
New York Times - 07/31/2009
"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."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/29/2009
"[A] gaudy, daring, operatic, and bloody funny provocation of a melodrama from Park Chan-wook....THIRST is gorgeous, every shot a keeper, even as blood flows in rivers and hell beckons." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club - 07/30/2009
"[I]ts turgid pace creates a queasy fascination all its own, drawing viewers into an ever-darkening locus of sin and obsession..." -- Grade: B
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/13/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "Movies exist to cloak our desires in disguises we can accept, and there is an undeniable appeal to THIRST."
Uncut - 10/09/2009
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."

Product Description:

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.
