The Egyptian vampire lady Miriam subsists upon the blood of her lovers. In return the guys or girls don't age... until Miriam has enough of them. Unfortunately that's currently the case with John, so his life expectancy is below 24 hours. Desperately he seeks help from the famous Dr. Sarah Roberts. She doesn't really belive his story, but becomes curious and contacts Miriam ... and gets caught in her ban, too. Written by

The name of the academic book that Dr Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon) wrote was "Sleep and Longevity". See more »
During the quick cuts when John attacks Alice, blood splashes on the sheet music. A few cuts later, the music stand is kicked to the floor, and the open pages are now blood-free. The unstained pages are seen again at the end of the sequence (in a fade effect that reinstates their blood stains). See more »
Really beautiful tale about love,loneliness and death...
Watching "The Hunger" is an unforgettable experience.This is a real vampire film,not a laughable stupidity like "The Lost Boys".Highly atmospheric,incredibly stylish,erotic,bloody and chilling-these adjectives can simply describe this great movie.The acting is splendid(I love especially wonderful Catherine Deneuve as a bisexual female vampire)and the atmosphere is full of strange melancholy.Some scenes remind me a bad dream.If you love horror movies with artistic touch,you can't miss this one.In my opinion a masterpiece.
