Format: DVD
This was a Showtime series back in the late 90's. It was produced by brothers Ridley and Tony Scott. The show is basically Tales From The Crypt without the in-your-face black humor and less interested in the scares and more interested in the eroticism of its stories. It's a spin off of the Tony Scott directed film of the same name starring David Bowie(who would go on to host the second season's episodes). The whole show is on the same level as that film. It's filmed in the similar smokey style, the sex is explicit and integral, and it involves the supernatural world on some level or another.

Most of the episodes are really entertaining, all only running about 25 minutes, and all are introduced by a very cheeky Terrence Stamp. Tony Scott even takes the directorial reins on the first episode of this season and the next. Some familar faces show up as well like Lena Headey(300, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles), Karen Black(Trilogy of Terror, Five Easy Pieces), Daniel Craig(what, you live under a rock? He's the new Bond!), Curtis Armstrong(Revenge of the Nerds, Risky Business), and some others. Actually, this may only be interesting to me, but this is the only time you'll ever see Curtis "Booger" Armstrong involved in a sex scene. Whether that's good or simply interesting is up for you to decide.

The transfer for this first season DVD set is pristine. It's fullframe, though. Not sure if it was filmed that way like Tales From The Crypt, but it seems to have been framed with the intention of fullframe. The sound and colors all shine. There are no really good special features to brag about. On the fourth disc you get a 20 minute featurette that goes beind the scenes of the second season and gives you a preview of it as well.

Format: DVD
Wow - I had no idea that this series even existed and when I first saw the title pop-up on Amazon, I thought it referred to the 1983 vampire movie starring Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie. Well, it turns out that Tony Scott who was behind the movie, got together with brother Ridley in 1997 and produced a horror anthology which was shown on Showtime.

The episodes all run about 28 mins, with an introduction and conclusion for each episode by host Terence Stamp. The episodes boast some familiar names, like Daniel Craig, Jason Scott Lee, Karen Black etc. Oh, and each episode has an explicit sex scene with lots of nudity, muted colors etc.

The stories all deal in one form or another with the darker appetites of humans, i.e. hunger for money, hunger for blood, hunger for love etc. Each story has some sort of twist which is usually revealed towards the end. I'd have to say that as a fan of the supernatural, this series was quite entertaining and addictive. Some of the plotlines worked better than others, but of the 22 episodes, I found the majority of the episodes fun, watchable and entertaining.

Here is a list of all 22 episodes contained on 4 discs:

1. "The Swords" - a young man looking for some affection is captivated by the poster of a seductive woman surrounded by swords.
2. "Menage a Trois" - Karen Black hams it up as a mysterious rich invalid who hires an attractive nurse to work for her. The nurse and the handy man about house [pre-Bond Daniel Craig] get together for some pretty heavy sex, wch seems to have a rejuvenating effect on Ms Black.
3. "Necros" - a guy is lured by an attractive woman married to an old man, despite warnings to stay away from the pair believed to be the Devil's disciples.

I'm writing about this series before the product is released because it's not that well-known. It's often confused with the 1983 film The Hunger, featuring Catherine DeNeuve, Susan Sarandon, and David Bowie. There is no connection between the two.

The Hunger is like a soft-porn Twilight Zone, with each of the 22 half-hour episodes introduced by Terence Stamp. (Season 2 features David Bowie as the host, causing more confusion with the 1983 movie.) Filmed in Montreal, the show is darkly atmospheric, dark, grim, moody, with a lot of stylish, flashy photography that sometimes overwhelms the substance. Still, there are some great stories here; the episode featuring a young Daniel Craig, ten years before he was offered the role of Bond, is one of the best.

This has been available on DVD before, but in the worst possible form. The 44 episodes of both seasons were scattered across 11 discs, which were poorly distributed and tough to find. Episodes were mixed in random order, some from Season 1 sharing a disc with shows from Season 2. One disc even had no menu! Worse yet, none of the episode titles were listed on the back of the boxes.

So far, Season sets have been available only in Europe, but this release will, if nothing else, make all 22 Season 1 episodes available in a form that lets you find the episode you want.

Since I don't have the product yet, I can't vouch for the picture or sound quality, but even if it's no improvement on the old release, simply being able to have all the shows in one set is a major upgrade.
