The Hunger (1983)

The Hunger (1983) Starred David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve and is probably one of the most stylish horror movies you'll ever see. This vampire flick is filled with some awesome visuals.The film is excellently acted-a stunningly beautiful Catherine Deneuve is truly memorable as Miriam-an ageless vampire and former Egyptian queen.There is plenty of blood and vampire lesbian sex,so everyone who is into horror films or Goth music should see this cult flick.The opening scene with Bauhaus playing "Bela Lugosi is Dead" is priceless!

This film was also the inspiration for the showtime series The Hunger (1997) hosted by Terrence Stamp, one of my favorite and most original horror anthology series. It featured a phenomenal cast of familiar faces (including Karen Black, Joanna Cassidy, Daniel Craig, Bruce Davison, Giancarlo Esposito, Colin Ferguson, Jason Flemyng, Balthazar Getty, Lena Headey, Margot Kidder, Sally Kirkland, Jason Scott Lee, Chad Lowe, Stephen McHattie and Timothy Spall) as you’ve never seen them before.

  1. A great film! Above all the scene where David Bowie in the hospital where he goes in young and waits for the doctor and becomes older and older is simply fantastic! Has seen the film in the German Free TV... simply good! I also like also best the horror films before 2000. Earlier the films still simply had charm and style and were made affectionate. Not like today!
