THE HUNGER - Classic 1983 Vampire Horror Movie with David Bowie

Today's post is sort of a trip down memory lane..... 1980's Style! Back in 1983, Warner Bros released a cool Vampire horror movie that has since become a total CULT Classic. We're talking about THE HUNGER, starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. Shown here are some original vintage movie posters the WB used at that time to promote the film.

The basic story was about a few modern-day Vampires, set in the 80's, New York City. Catherine Deneuve plays Miriam, a centuries-old Vampire capable of bestowing the gift of immortality on her lovers. David Bowie plays her current paramour, John. For some unknown reason "John" starts to age very rapidly. It's at this time that he visits the clinic of scientist Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon), who had recently published a book on reversing the aging process. Now I don't want to give away too much of the plot. Basically, I'm saying this is a must watch for vamp fans!

One really great thing about this film is it's movie soundtrack. In it, you get to hear "Bela Lugosi is Dead" by Bauhaus. Please be sure to check out this amazing video of the original movie trailer:

OK, by now you know what a great Vampire movie this is. So, to celebrate here's a VAMPYRE wallpaper background to brighten your desktop, enjoy. Oh yeah, if you also look below it you can find a LINK BUTTON to get an amazing price on the recent DVD:
