Like the idea behind Park Chan-wook’s “Thirst”, but can’t understand a lick of what they’re saying in the previous trailers? Have no fear, non-Korean speaking movie watchers, here’s the first English trailer (with subtitles) for Park’s “Thirst”, his movie about faith, vampires, and guys and gals who like to drink each other’s blood and, er, suck on each other’s feet apparently. It’s listed as a red band trailer, but to be honest, I don’t see anything overly “red band”-ish about it, although there were a couple of gaping wounds there, so I suppose that counts.
Beloved and devoted priest from a small town volunteers for a medical experiment which fails and turns him into a vampire. Physical and psychological changes lead to his affair with a wife of his childhood friend who is repressed and tired of her mundane life. The one-time priest falls deeper in despair and depravity. As things turns for worse, he struggles to maintain whats left of his humanity.
Starring Song Kang-ho, Shin Ha-kyun, Kim Ok-bi, and directed by Park Chan-wook (“Oldboy”).
The film is currently scheduled to land in Stateside theaters on July 31. You’re probably looking at a limited selection here, meaning anyone not living in LA/NY will have to do some hunting for the sucker.
