SURREAL REELS: THE HUNGER (18)

Date Time
Sat 26th March 4.30pm

Dir: Tony Scott | UK | 1983 | 99 mins
Cast: Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon

Tony Scott’s (True Romance) visually sumptuous vampire tale features outstanding performances from a dream cast: Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and the recently departed David Bowie. Deneuve is Miriam, a centuries-old vampire who promises to bestow eternal youth on her lovers – including her current partner (Bowie), with whom she cruises New York nightclubs in search of new victims. But then he realises he is beginning to age; and soon, Miriam will need fresh blood… Enhanced by the wonderfully stylish production design and heady, elliptical narrative, Scott’s erotic horror is well worth revisiting.
