Korean director Park Chan-wook is known for ultra-violence and gore thanks primarily to his popular "Vengeance Trilogy": "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance," "Oldboy" and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance." So I was pretty surprised when I checked out his latest effort "Thirst" at a recent NYC screening. You see, the gore is kept to a minimum and the violence is similarly so.
In fact, I think "Thirst" is best described as a dark rom-com focused on vampires. I know there are a lot of Twilighters out there in the reading audience and, so long as you have the stomach to handle a few gross-out moments, I think you'll very much enjoy "Thirst." I can't say too much about the movie, but I can share this exclusive clip from it. "Thirst" hits theaters in limited release July 31.
