Movie Reviews

This is THE DISC to fulfill your THIRST!
fairlane44 | TOKYO Japan | 03/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you know about this film already, you'll not need any other words. But if you don't, and if you have some taste on this genre, Horror, and need something different, THIRST is just for you. I don't want to shout about it as a GREAT film though, but literally a LITTLE GEM from Ausie Horror Scene of mid-70s to mid-80s, its MadMax Age. A Head of a modern-day-vampire-community tries to seduce a young girl, Kate Davies, who is the decendant of the infamous blood-drinking Baroness Elizabeth Bathory. It's somewhat a low budget production, but the tone of the film is surprisingly atomospheric, eerie, and effective. Direction is tight, and its music score, yes, the music is just great. Brian May, who wrote first two MadMax, and almost all the Ausie SciFi/Horror scores of this age, is at his best here. The disc has his entire music on its isolated track, thus proving this DVD knows what is juicy about the film. Also this is the very first presentation of the film's CinemaScope aspect ratio, which reveals more information lost for years on previous VHS version, along with rich composition of the frame. If you like THIRST, you will also need PATRICK, which is just out on a gorgeous DVD Special Edition in the same way....I had been dying to wait for this DVD emerges, now expecting they will release HARLEQUIN, THE SURVIVOR, and ROAD GAMES, also a great little gem from Australia."
Cool late-70s gem
W. M. Berger | Kasparhauser, NJ | 01/11/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Slinky beauty Chantal Contouri and Blow-Up/Deep Red icon David Hemmings star in this oh-so-70s bit of nuanced weirdness about some upper-crust vampires who have automated their bloodlust by erecting a series of "blood farms," where "donors" walk around dazed and pale in plain white uniforms. The film is nicely done, with striking set pieces and plenty of surreal plot shifts. Thirst is part Clonus, part Prisoner episode, with a great 4:30-movie vibe throughout. If you like Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark or Burnt Offerings, Thirst will be a satisfying view."
Saw it once in the 80's and NEVER forgot it!
Paul D. Rasmussen Jr. | Pittsburgh PA, United States | 03/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It was on cable, HBO or Cinemax, I think. Ususally I don't go for horror. Thirst is more suspense than gore with a modern twist on vampires. So compelling, I couldn't forget it even after 20 years. It's obscure and not nearly as brutal and bloody as many horror fans prefer, but it's a gem of a story. Well directed, acted and scored. One way to describe it would be: What are modern day vampires up to?"
Awesome Seldom Seen Film
Peter | Sioux Falls, SD | 03/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a terrific little film with a great take on vampirism that is different than anything else out there. It is not filled with gore and action, and much of it is during the day, but the atmosphere is great. The film itself is widescreen in a beautiful transfer. I highly recommending trying this one out if you like this sort of thing and are open to something new and different."
