Editorial Reviews

The Ozploitation classic and one of the most unique vampire movies of our time is back like you've never seen it before: David Hemmings (BLOW-UP, DEEP RED) and Henry Silva (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) star as executives of an international blood-drinking cartel known as The Brotherhood. But when they abduct a descendant (Chantal Contouri of THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN ) of Elizabeth Bathory to reboot her depraved legacy, she must escape before the corporation can expand their human blood cow dairies and create a vampire master race. Max Phipps (THE ROAD WARRIOR) co-stars in this gripping shocker directed by Rod Hardy (Prisoner: Cell Block H), produced by Antony Ginnane (PATRICK, TURKEY SHOOT), and now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever anywhere!

If you know about this film already, you'll not need any other words. But if you don't, and if you have some taste on this genre, Horror, and need something different, THIRST is just for you. I don't want to shout about it as a GREAT film though, but literally a LITTLE GEM from Ausie Horror Scene of mid-70s to mid-80s, its MadMax Age. A Head of a modern-day-vampire-community tries to seduce a young girl, Kate Davies, who is the decendant of the infamous blood-drinking Baroness Elizabeth Bathory. It's somewhat a low budget production, but the tone of the film is surprisingly atomospheric, eerie, and effective. Direction is tight, and its music score, yes, the music is just great. Brian May, who wrote first two MadMax, and almost all the Ausie SciFi/Horror scores of this age, is at his best here. The disc has his entire music on its isolated track, thus proving this DVD knows what is juicy about the film. Also this is the very first presentation of the film's CinemaScope aspect ratio, which reveals more information lost for years on previous VHS version, along with rich composition of the frame. If you like THIRST, you will also need PATRICK, which is just out on a gorgeous DVD Special Edition in the same way....I had been dying to wait for this DVD emerges, now expecting they will release HARLEQUIN, THE SURVIVOR, and ROAD GAMES, also a great little gem from Australia.

Slinky beauty Chantal Contouri and Blow-Up/Deep Red icon David Hemmings star in this oh-so-70s bit of nuanced weirdness about some upper-crust vampires who have automated their bloodlust by erecting a series of "blood farms," where "donors" walk around dazed and pale in plain white uniforms. The film is nicely done, with striking set pieces and plenty of surreal plot shifts. Thirst is part Clonus, part Prisoner episode, with a great 4:30-movie vibe throughout. If you like Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark or Burnt Offerings, Thirst will be a satisfying view.

This is one of the most convincing, scariest,believable Vampire movies ever made... yet very few people have even heard of it! Made in Australia, starring unknown actress Chantal Contouri,a woman against her will is taken to a Vampire retreat to be prepared for initiation into the world of the undead. Has modern overtones which most Vamp flicks lack.Well directed,plot is intruiging,keeps you moving along, and soundtrack is fantastic!Highly recommended by a Vampire film expert.This 'oughta quench your THIRST for a great Vampire flick!!!!

I saw this film at the cinema (as a double-bill with an equally rare film "The Silent Flute"). I was mesmerised by it, not least because of the sleekily sexy Chantal Contouri who plays Kate Davis, heiress to a vampire legacy.
These vampires are not fanged night-creatures (despite the cover-art; they actually only put in fanged dentures for the occasional ritual feast, otherise they drink blood from milk cartons). These vampires run a blood-farm where zombie-like young people are occasionally hooked up to machines and 'milked' of their blood.
The vampires want young Kate to join them, to mate with another blue-blood vampire.
The film, low-budgeted is quite well done.
Sadly, Chantal Contouri has not made many films. She appears older, but equally sexual in another Australian film "Offspring".

One of the best vampire movies to join my DVD collection. And I prefer books, ladies and gentlemen. But Thirst needed to join my collection. Why? It is scary yet simple. It hits you in the gut but doesn't over use the special effects or gore. In fact, being that they had little time or money they had to do what all good artists did. They focused on the story. A good, solid, vampire story that makes you check your milk twice a day and distrust your maid when she suggests you take a shower. Also, make sure to check your chicken legs before you bite into them.
Like all good horror stories it hints that something is wrong, just out of the corner of your eyes, someplace in the background. The idea is that thousands of vampires live among us, living on blood milked from humans in blood farms. They don't burst into flames during the day nor do they sleep in coffins, but the suggestion is that the blood they drink makes them superior to normal humans. And Kate Davis is one of them. She just doesn't know it yet.

This is a terrific little film with a great take on vampirism that is different than anything else out there. It is not filled with gore and action, and much of it is during the day, but the atmosphere is great. The film itself is widescreen in a beautiful transfer. I highly recommending trying this one out if you like this sort of thing and are open to something new and different.

Kate Davis (Chantal Contouri) is a beautiful, young business woman w/ an idyllic life. Everything is going great for her, including her love-life. Unfortunately for Kate, she has been watched / monitored by a large, secret society of modern-day vampires. These folks want Ms. Davis to join them, and they are absolutely committed to obtaining her membership! Kate is abducted and taken to an enormous complex, where she is introduced to the Hyma Brotherhood, a collective of blood-drinkers operating a "blood dairy", complete w/ a sophisticated milking facility and shambling hordes of drugged, human cattle! The Hyma bunch are convinced that Kate is of the most royal, vampiric blood-line, and they are prepared to use all means necessary, including force, to have Kate as their own. As vampire movies go, THIRST is one of the most original and interesting ideas I have ever seen. The plot is simple, yet done in a way that makes it quite mysterious and dark. The vampire characters are normal, average-looking people, who just happen to drink human blood (Well, I guess there is that whole human sacrifice / ritual thing they perform). Shirley Cameron and David Hemmings are excellent as two vamps w/ different theories on how to best handle Kate's situation. Henry Silva (Alligator) is also along for the festivities. Highly recommended...
