The Hunger

Presented as part of our David Bowie; STARMAN series!

“She came out of Egypt more than 2,000 years ago. En route to the present day, she picked him up in England in the 18th century. Today they live on Manhattan's East Side in a magnificent marble palazzo. They are Miriam and John Blaylock - young, beautiful and permanently engaged in a search for new blood.

“As played by the immaculately beautiful Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie, the Blaylocks are very good company. That is, if one has a taste for vampire films, especially vampire films that look as trendy and chic as Tony Scott's The Hunger.

“The Hunger is a love story not necessarily for the ages, but about them. Specifically, it's about what happens when 200-year-old John begins to show his years, which occurs almost overnight. His last blood fix, provided by a young couple picked up at a disco, hasn't worked, and Miriam, like any other concerned wife, seeks medical advice. She goes to Dr. Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon), a brilliant young scientist engaged in research about the aging process.

“The movie reeks with chic, but never, for one minute, takes itself too seriously, nor does it ever slop over into camp.” - NY Times
