Catherine DeNeuve, Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon and rocker David Bowie star in this stylishly gothic tale of a undying beauty, unending passion and their terrible cost--The Hunger. Centuries-old Egyptian vampire Miriam (Deneuve) and her centuries-old lover, John (Bowie), feed on urban nightclub goers. But, while Miriam can bestow a very long life on her lovers, she cannot grant them her immortality. When John starts to rapidly age, Miriam seduces Sarah (Sarandon), a doctor researching premature aging.

Common Sense Says
Bloody lesbian-vampire story is stylish, but no Twilight.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this stylish, blood-soaked drama with lots of sex is definitely not for kids. It's spooky and tense throughout as beautiful vampires lure numerous victims to their deaths by strangulation, stabbing, and more. Sexual activity is used as foreplay to murder from the opening scenes until the final resolution. There is partial female nudity (including multiple shots of bare breasts), oral sex, erotic dancing and seduction, and lesbian sex. Occasional coarse language is heard, including "f--k." Characters smoke heavily throughout, consume alcohol, and quaaludes are mentioned. Though vampire movies continue to appeal to a mass audience, particularly teens, this film is very different from the tame, romantic, and idealized vampirism of the Twilight series and others like it.
