Thirst (2009)

This South Korean vampire movie is a great example of the diversity of foriegn cinema and its difference from standard Hollywood fare. In the case of Thirst this is both a blessing and a curse.vlcsnap-2011-09-20-20h23m32s22

Although Thirst is a reasonably enjoyable film with a unique take on vampirism and a highly polished look it struggles to overcome its odd pacing and bizarre subplots. There is never really any exposition on certain plot points (such as cancer remission or apparent frailty in the love interests husband?), Police presence in the face of obvious murders/assaults seem no existent and the story is hugely unbalanced in flow.

A refreshing vampire flick that could have been far better, but survives when it could have been far worse.vlcsnap-2011-09-20-20h52m39s86
