A rollicking, hysterical splatter-sex-comedy only confirms 'Thirst' as one of the year's more extreme, enjoyable entertainments.

What the film is saying, so far as I can tell, is that, if cut, you will bleed. And bleed.

Thirst is a grim antidote to the sanitized, pale young things of Twilight, Supernatural and True Blood.

Thirst begins with great intellectual and artistic promise, then devolves into a repetitious mess of teeth, blades, necks, bites, arterial sprays, sex, sex, sex and death.

The few funny or visceral scenes cannot hide the fact that in the year that the vampire flick has been reinvigorated... this is a major disappointment.

Thirst truly enters the dreamy, disturbing world of psychological horror. Park manages to sidestep a lot of the cliches of this subgenre by injecting seemingly inappropriate bits of humor.

The broad humour ends up undercutting the potential poignancy of the ending... Never mind, because it's not every day you see two vampires locked in such a colourful apache dance of destruction, filmed with such aplomb.

Leave it to the South Koreans to inject new blood into the seemingly eternal vampire oeuvre.
