Director Park Chan-Wook (OLDBOY) 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. The acclaimed Korean director has expressed that THIRST is more than just a simple horror film, but an 'illicit love story' with dark undertones. And at a time when broody chaste vampires are the new hot ticket, it's also a refreshingly bloody return to the creatures' Gothic roots.
