"This is a collection of four episodes of the Showtime series The Hunger. Each episode is complete and introduced by David Bowie.In the first story we have woman and her doppelganger. One thinks the other will try to kill her and the other is having strange dreams about a smallpox outbreak.The second story concerns the last witch in a long line of powerful witches. She is casting spells against a man who stopped loving her. Things get strange when her mother hires a new personal nurse.The third story concerns a man who must oversee the demolition of his estranged father's house. But a secret room is found in the basement containing a strange brass bed and items of occult design.The final story has two researchers conspire at an agricultural firm. New technologies could make the company a gigantic fortune but one executive stands in the way. An ancient seed encased in amber might hold the key.Each story is complete unto itself and can be watched separately. This is a Showtime series, so there is plenty of nudity and sex that makes this unsuitable for many viewers."
A Bump in the night, can give you more than just a fright...
