"This is a collection of four tales from the Showtime cable series The Hunger. Although the package says "with Terrence Stamp" it is David Bowie who introduces these four tales of twisted devotion.The Suction Method has a cheating husband contemplating cheating with the woman his wife hired to clean his carpet using the suction method.Nunc Dimittis has David Warner as a servant to a princess. He knows he is dying and must find a replacement to serve his princess and she is not what one expects.Dream Sentinel has a tormented stripper amicably haunted by a jealous ghost. The ending of this one is open to a lot of interpretation.The Perfect Couple has cupid (looking like a young Anthony Perkins) bring two people together. But as we see them years later we have to wonder what Cupids game really is.As this is a Showtime series, there is plenty of nudity and sex thus making it unsuitable for some viewers."

"This is another brilliant collection the TV series, The Hunger. This collection of epsiodes is a bit different. Let's just say that these are defantly very twisted tales.
1. The first one is about a cheating husband named Max, who is cheating on his wife. But, his wife goes out of town and arranges to have the carpet cleaned, by a very sexy carpet cleaner. Who offers, her own unique method of cleaning called "the Suction Method" . Max is tempted to cheat with her and learns a very painful lesson.
2. The second one is about a servent of an elderly princess, who must find his replacement. Before he dies, however the replacement is not quite what either of them expects.
3. The third one is about a young dancer, who is tormented by her tragic past. But, she is also haunted by a ghost of a killer who just wants more than to protect her.
4. The fourth one is about a very strange looking Cupid, who plays matchmaker for a couple. But, when some time has pass and Cupid returns. He finds his perfect couple invovled in torrid affairs and decides to make them pay for their sins.
These are truly some wicked tales!!!! You will like this collection of epsiodes from the Hunger!!!"
