About This DVD

From the acclaimed director of the global hit Old Boy comes a shockingly original vampire story with a chilling, erotic style. A blood transfusion saves the life of a priest, but also transforms him into a vampire. He struggles to control his insatiable thirst for blood until a love affair unleashes his darkest desires in deadly new ways. Hailed as "Daring, operatic, and bloody funny!" (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly), Thirst is a truly wicked love story that takes classic vampire lore to twisted new heights.

Director Chan-wook Park moves on from his legendary "Vengeance Trilogy" to tell this blood and sex-filled tale of a priest who is healed from death by vampire blood and goes on to start a blazing-hot, vampire-on-human affair with his old friend's hot young wife. Hot Korean beauty Ok-vin Kim plays the wife who gets into all kinds of crazy realistic sex and shows off her scrumptious sacks and hot ass over and over again. Hot nudity, buckets of crimson red gore and much more.

Sang-hyun, a small town beloved and admired priest who serves devotedly at a hospital, volunteers for the new infectious disease, F.I.V.’s, vaccine development experiment and goes to Africa. The experiment fails and Sang-hyun gets infected by F.I.V. but he ends up being miraculously cured and returns home. News of Sang-hyun’s cure from F.I.V. spreads and people start believing he has the gift of healing and flock to receive his prayers. From those who come to him, Sang-yun meets a childhood friend named Kang-woo and his wife Tae-ju. Sang-hyun is immediately drawn to Tae-ju.

One day, Sang-hyun coughs up blood, dies, and comes back to life the next day as a vampire. Tae-ju gets attracted to Sang-hyun, turned vampire, and they have a secret love affair. Sang-hyun asks Tae-ju to run away with him but she turns him down. Instead, they plot to kill Kang-woo...
