The Hunger

  • Directed by Tony Scott
  • United Kingdom, 1983, 97 mins., English

Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, and Susan Sarandon make a comely vampire ménage à trois in this steamy cult story of the undead from recently deceased director Tony Scott. John and Miriam Blalock (Bowie and Deneuve) are a New York City vampire couple for the ages, but John’s 200+ years are catching up with him. Miriam seeks help from a brilliant doctor studying the aging process (Sarandon), which leads to a memorable, erotically charged seduction scene in the name of eternity. Upon release, David Bowie dryly commented,  “I must say, there’s nothing that looks like it on the market.”
