After the town hears of his miraculous recovery, Sang-hyun (Sang Kang-Ho) is flocked by individuals begging for prayers for their sick family members. He tells everyone it’s just a psychological effect but agrees to join a mother who claims her son has cancer. Once he meets the son at the hospital, he discovers that he is an old friend and is coerced into joining the family at their house for dinner. He realizes shortly after that this is no ordinary family.

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.
