Meet Maxx (no, that isn't a typo!) He's a recovering drug addict. So's his girlfirend, Lisa. At least, she claims to be off the stuff, but Maxx thinks that she's secretly using. As dark as these suspicions might be, the truth turns out to be much worse. Lisa is rushed to hospital after coughing up blood and collapsing; it's only then, confronting her in a hospital bed, that Maxx learns the truth: Lisa isn't back on the drugs. She's dying of cancer. Moreover, she's been keeping this a secret from him for a while now. Maxx doesn't take this revelation well, and storms out. Shortly after this incident, Lisa commits suicide. Devastated, Maxx shuns his friends and his social life, locking himself away in his apartment for days on end. His friends won't let him suffer alone though, so they intervene and drag him out to a club with them. It's there, that night, that Maxx spots someone who looks the very image of Lisa. Is he imagining it, or could she still be alive somehow..?

From this brief synopsis you might be forgiven for thinking that this film is basically "Vertigo" meets "The Hunger" with a little of "Requiem for a Dream" mixed in for flavour. That is how it starts, but then it veers way off into a whole different direction and becomes a lame "Near Dark" knock-off. Boy, does this film want to be that film! But it really, really isn't.

Looking back once again at the plot synopsis you might be forgiven for thinking that this film will be very character-driven and will have credibly fleshed-out protagonists. Initially this seems to be the case, but as the film moves on things start to become less coherent, and increasingly jarring. Characters and tone abruptly change back and forth.

If you like your films gory you'll probably like The Thirst although some of the death scenes are a little OTT, the music is good the acting isn't bad at all and although it was probably a low budget movie some scenes are done very well. There is also a comedic element which fits in well with the tone of the film.

Lisa (Clare Kramer) is a stripper with stage 4 cancer. She hasn't informed her boyfriend Maxx (Matt Keeslar) who simply believes the smell and vomit is because she is a drug addict. Lisa's dancing style catches the eye of Mariel (Serena Scott Thomas) who recruits the near dead Lisa into a vampire coven. Maxx believes Lisa is dead until he sees her out one night at the Inferno Club. Eventually Maxx becomes one of them and the story becomes one of a bizarre metaphor for addiction.

The film had plenty of blood. In fact our vampires are not overly neat and bathing appears to be optional. It was a little much. Most female vampires eventually become topless except for Lisa who wears a colored see-through early on. There were times the film had that classic "Dusk to Dawn (D2D)" feel to it, but it didn't last. Fans of the D2D series with low standards should like this feature.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity.

I love vampire movies, but this one left more than a little to be desired.
The plot is a little fuzzy, but a girl has cancer and her boyfriend is very unsupportive. She kills herself and he is suddenly all upset about this even though he treated her like trash when she needed him the most.
Later on some friends drag him to a nightclub where he spots his deceased girlfriend. After this point the movie sort of lost my attention, but there appeared to be a lot of screaming and vampires. I guess it was supposed to be romantic when the dead girlfriend transforms him into a vampire, but it was just stupid. I mean; why on earth would she want to be with him forever? He's a jackass.
So; stupid plot, bad acting, lots of cliches. One of those movies where you wish for the characters to just die already.

This movie swaggers quite a bit, and is evidently quite pleased with what it kids itself is an attitude of transgressive hipness, but ultimately it limps to a dead-eyed conclusion that no amount of campery or knock-off sub-Whedon "wry" dialogue can save it from.

Most of the cast float around their roles rather than inhabiting them, with Matt Keeslar and Jeremy Sisto inflicting particular damage to character and credibility. Clare Kramer, alone, seems "present" within the story. But she's got a fight on her hands to salvage anything from a "here we go again" tale of nightclubbing urban vampires that steals more than it knows what to do with from "Near Dark", including a hamfisted variant on Lance Henriksen's immortal "I fought for the South..." line from that movie.

The blurb on the cover compares this to Requiem for a Dream & Near Dark.
This film isn't anywhere near the quality of those two.

I'm not sure if the over-acting was deliberate, but it's certainly tiresome.
