The Hunger does just that...leaves you hungry. For me most of the episodes left me saying' is that it?', maybe due to constraints the series had caused it to hold back on both the sex and the horror, I think if it was updated and made in this day and age, what with the likes of Game of Thrones, Banshee and American Horror Story then 'The Hunger' may have been a massive hit had it been allowed to go the whole hog with its twisted storytelling, horror and titillation, but due to TV series constraints of the day and age the series is sadly flawed, handcuffed and not of the fluffy variety. There is the gem amongst the rubble in the series, some of the stories stand out better than others such as Necros...a very twisted little tale with more SFX then most of the episodes and episode 5 'The Bridal Suite' pushes the boundaries of the television censorship back then.....I quite fancied the cursed mattress featured in the episode where unfaithful lovers becomes trapped..forever bound in the mattress to fulfill the desires of the woman who lays upon it! . I went into the Hunger for the horror rather than the sex and was kinda disappointed by most of the storylines, I also think those that are watching this for the desire may feel let down as the sex is very vanilla, not enough variety for those who are focusing on the series for that element

A side point to note, the title screen is nauseating , its how I imagine being on an acid trip would feel like, certainly it is migraine inducing and not recommended for sufferers of epilepsy.

All in all, The Hunger had great potential, let down by the constraints of the time.

Wow. These are odd little things; 30 minute-long Tales of the Unexpected with an entirely adult twist. They are delightfully weird; deliberately obscure and dashingly presented by Terence Stamp as The Host. He sets the tone perfectly for half an hour of slightly shocking surreality...
Each episode tells a complete story, presented in art-cinema style, with various guest stars (a young Balthazar Getty, a pre-fame Daniel Craig among them) kicking out surprisingly well-rounded performances. Then there's the sex. Almost every story has a sensual and sexual aspect to it and it's a rare 30 minutes which doesn't have a shagging scene in it -- some of them artfully delicate but many with full on nudity. The record so far is a shag within 2.5 minutes of the episode starting!
There are plenty of other adult themes explored in these twisted tales too; greed, fear, love, possession, aging, monsters, madmen and fearfully predatory women. Each episode is gorgeously produced on what looks like a shoe-string budget, with the Scott brothers' experience (the series is produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's own company) lending flair to the filming.
Unexpectedly wonderful, then. A little gem tucked away in a morass of mindless TV. But the effect of watching three or four back-to-back is like fingernails running down the blackboard of your psyche: you've been warned!
8/10

I have only seen the first episode. I don't agree that the sex and horror should be stronger. This is from an age when the restrictions that no longer apply lead to subtlety and imagination. The plot was predictable and today the effects could be better integrated. but that doesn't mean it wasn't an enjoyable watch. It ran shorter than the standard 42 minutes of American shows which made me wonder if it hadn't been censored. I will continue to watch without getting overexcited if I miss any.. Think Tales of the Unexpected for those old enough to remember.

I should have read the reviews before I bought this - even though it only cost 2 quid. The thing is it has really nothing to do with the movie of the same name apart from the mention of the scott brothers in the credits and perhaps the opening music which is possibly bauhaus as in the original movie.
it is essentially a collection of modern gothic short stories for late night tv - some ok , some crap but all fairly old from the 70s. A few big names in the first one or two - young daniel craig. You see a variety of breasts and bums in most episodes but the sex is just there to tease and no more.
There are 4 discs, so about 24 episodes of 1/2 hour - that's 12 hours... waiting.
It will be in the charity shop next week for 50p

The Hunger, a spin of to the film with Susan Sarandon, Catherine Denueve & David Bowie, who does the host part for Season 2, is very similar to a 1980's Tales Of The Unexpected, but an adult version of it, if you see what I mean. The pilot, which had a bit of foul language, takes place in London & stars from Inspector Morse Amanda Ryan from The Daughters of Cain episode, a very attractive short black hair, very sexy with it as well, you also see her topless, as a bonus, but as Season 1 goes on, the foul language seems to go down, less of it, but the acting is not too bad, even at times it seems a bit tacky, James Bonds Daniel Craig, even turns up in episode 2, it also goes around the world to various capitals as well as London, we also have Paris, New York & Berlin but towards the end of Season 1, stays mainly in the States. Narrated by Terence Stamp & like Tales, mentioned before the endings to each 27 minute episode comes with an unexpected twist, enjoyable if you enjoyed the film with some basic erotic, but not really sexy undertones, giving this a 3 star*** rating & for Amanda Ryans performance 5 stars***** cor!!!, hope she's reading this, nuff said.
