Fresh from his star-making turns in Peggy Sue Got Married, Raising Arizona and Moonstruck, Nicolas Cage delivered a wildly original, career-crowning performance—including the on-camera consumption of a live cockroach—in this pitch-perfect, pitch-black comedy about a Manhattan literary agent who believes he’s turning into a vampire.

Shot concurrently using the same sets as the Tod Browning–Bela Lugosi classic, the Spanish-language version of the Bram Stoker novel was made as a part of a common practice in the early talkie era of producing foreign-language versions of Hollywood films for international audiences. Spanish actor Carlos Villarías steps into the role of the seductive vampire who preys upon an innocent young woman (Lupita Tovar). Considered by many to be the superior version of the film.

Park Chan-wook redefines the vampire genre with a quirky sense of humor and keen insight on the dark territories surrounding the human condition. Song Kang-ho plays a moral priest who accidentally turns into a vampire after volunteering for a medical experiment and is faced with the dilemmas of his new existence. Clever, disturbing, and inimitable, Thirst is unquestionably one of Park’s finest works.
