THE HUNGER

Director: Tony Scott

USA • 1983 • COLOUR • ANAMORPHIC • 97 MIN


By popular demand, a 25th anniversary screening of this kinky cult favourite, beloved by discerning vampire movie aficionados and queer cinema buffs everywhere. Tony Scott adapts Whitley (Communion) Strieber’s novel as a sumptuous and sombre gothic mood piece — a work that’s somewhat at odds with Scott’s later success as a director of hyper-kinetic action spectaculars like Top Gun and Enemy of the State. Undead New York sophisticates Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie seek the assistance of Doctor Susan Sarandon when human-vampire hybrid Bowie starts to look every one of his two hundred years. Before long, Deneuve invites Sarandon over for a bite. The years have been kind to The Hunger; above all, it looks ravishing, with the opening sequence — featuring Goth legends Bauhaus — worth the price of admission alone.
