The great Korean director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden) brings us this dark and thrilling hybrid of neo-noir and vampire film. Song Kang-ho stars as Sang-hyun, a Catholic priest who contracts a deadly disease during a vaccine trial but is saved after receiving a mistaken transfusion of vampire blood. As Sang-hyun struggles with the depravity required of his new condition, he also finds himself drawn to the wife of a childhood friend with whom he begins a dangerous affair. Brattle debut!

“For a movie so relentlessly bleak, Thirst is also one of the most erotically charged movies in the vampire genre.” – Gena Radcliffe, The Spool

Please Note: The Brattle no longer requires proof of vaccination to attend our events, however masks are still required except when actively eating or drinking. Please visit the Covid Response page for complete details.
