When two young couples venture into the desert for a sexy photo shoot, fun in the sun quickly turns into disaster after their car crashes into a ravine. Left with little water and without shelter, the couples are forced to ration supplies. As tensions rise, so does the heat in the isolated desert. Dehydrated, lost and hopeless, one by one the group begins to fall victim to the relentless elements. Miles away from civilization, suffering from delirium and dying of thirst, will anyone make it out alive?

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining and Surprisingly Powerful Film June 22, 2010
This film is very similar in concept to the film "Open Water," except that there is a total lack of water, ironically, because the four characters get stranded in the desert. The film features basically only the four main characters, with Lacey Chabert in the lead role. Chabert gives an emotionally charged, convincing performance as the characters fight for survival and prove just how far they are willing to go to save themselves and each other.

Without giving spoilers away, this film is highly entertaining, and the lengths that the characters are willing to go is astounding as they are forced to make unthinkable decisions as they face the possible fate of dying in the desert of thirst. If you have read Jack London's "To Build a Fire" or you are a big fan of "Open Water" then you will adore this film. If you are looking for a "slasher" flick, look elsewhere. This is about as far from being a slasher film as you can get, but there are elements of terror present. The producers could have chosen to make this movie exceptionally graphic and unpleasant (and at times, it is) but overall, they took the high road and ended up with an above-average movie. This would make for an excellent rental, and I would even suggest purchasing it for fans who like this type of film.

I searched high and low for a review of this film, but I could not find one anywhere, so I wanted to make sure I took the time to review it in detail but not give too much away. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Please Pass The Carmex June 27, 2010
Thirst was a highly effective survival"non action" thriller.
What it lacks in action it makes up for with character development ,gross out moments,great dialogue and storyline.
The fact that Lacy Chambert's character is almost a doctor"ready to graduate medical school" lends to the credibility of a lot the storyline that would have been impossible to pull off had she been anything else .It wouldn't have worked even if she were a nurse.
There are some real bite your pillow tense and gross out moments that are very well done and lend to the movies memorability factor.It even has a You can be human and a Vampire too kinda vibe in parts. Although It is in no way a Vampire flick.
I enjoyed it more than Open Water but not as Much as Adam Green's Frozen.
I saw it on demand but may buy it because I could see myself watching it again.
You never know how it will end and that's the way it should be,there is no twist or big surprise ,it's just a really well done movie about four people lost in the desert dying of thirst and other ailments.

3.0 out of 5 stars the things you will drink to stay alive... May 30, 2011
The setup is simple, and the plot meandering and not terribly realistic in Thirst (2010), where two couples face a crisis situation in the desert. Major spoilers follow, so proceed at your own discretion.

Tyson (Brandon Quinn), a fashion photographer, is headed off to a remote desert location to do a photo shoot with Atheria (Mercedes McNab) a model. Also along are Tyson's friend Bryan (Tygh Runyan), and his wife Noelle (Lacey Chabert) who is studying to be a doctor. The group travels deep into the desert, and begins the photo shoot. While looking for a new location, their vehicle runs off the road, and Atheria is injured. With their vehicle undrivable and no cell phone service (of course), the group faces a situation they are totally unprepared for. Noelle reveals that she is pregnant, which heightens the couple's drive to survive.

The intent of the film, is to show the outrageous acts people will do, when under extreme pressure. The first of which is some makeshift "brain surgery", involving Noelle taking a screwdriver to Atheria skull, even though she has no definite knowledge where the pressure on her brain may be. Evidently Noelle is unaware of the Hippocratic oath, which includes taking no action that may harm a patient, or engaging in a practice without being qualified. It is a pretty effective scene, but unfortunately the model does not survive, and after burying her body, the three survivors decide to try and walk to safety.

This is where the film really starts to lose credibility. The group came into the desert totally unprepared, with only a bag of chips, and some bottles of water. No one wears their sunglasses or hats, and Noelle heads off into the desert, wearing a sleeveless blouse and slippers.

Now that I have done my civic duty for today (Amazon usually isn't sure about subtitles. Even the First Look Studios and "Thirst" websites make no mention of them), "Thirst" is a nice, disturbing little movie. The oppression from unending heat and sun gets practically unbearable for the viewer, so have a glass of cool water to drink nearby. Everything else these mostly likable characters try to sate their thirst with is dangerous: "It tastes like garlic! Ha ha!"

I also can't recall seeing an actor eat a cactus in a movie: "Don't eat that!", says one knowing character to another who promptly screams: "It burns!"

Now, does that realization come in addition to the pain the cactus-muncher must have felt from eating the cactus needles, or is that a different pain?

I liked the ensemble acting, the rugged scorched outdoors locales and thought this movie was much more entertaining (in the most agonizing way) than "Open Water".

Overlooked but recommended for fans of the "We're stuck out here and we're going to die!" movies.

Intense storyline with unpredictable consequences. Definitely drives home the "be prepared" theme - especially when you are expecting a happily-ever-after ending. Well, almost.
