If you know about this film already, you'll not need any other words. But if you don't, and if you have some taste on this genre, Horror, and need something different, THIRST is just for you. I don't want to shout about it as a GREAT film though, but literally a LITTLE GEM from Ausie Horror Scene of mid-70s to mid-80s, its MadMax Age. A Head of a modern-day-vampire-community tries to seduce a young girl, Kate Davies, who is the decendant of the infamous blood-drinking Baroness Elizabeth Bathory. It's somewhat a low budget production, but the tone of the film is surprisingly atomospheric, eerie, and effective. Direction is tight, and its music score, yes, the music is just great. Brian May, who wrote first two MadMax, and almost all the Ausie SciFi/Horror scores of this age, is at his best here. The disc has his entire music on its isolated track, thus proving this DVD knows what is juicy about the film. Also this is the very first presentation of the film's CinemaScope aspect ratio, which reveals more information lost for years on previous VHS version, along with rich composition of the frame. If you like THIRST, you will also need PATRICK, which is just out on a gorgeous DVD Special Edition in the same way....I had been dying to wait for this DVD emerges, now expecting they will release HARLEQUIN, THE SURVIVOR, and ROAD GAMES, also a great little gem from Australia.

This is a terrific little film with a great take on vampirism that is different than anything else out there. It is not filled with gore and action, and much of it is during the day, but the atmosphere is great. The film itself is widescreen in a beautiful transfer. I highly recommending trying this one out if you like this sort of thing and are open to something new and different.

I am waiting for someone who has purchased the DVD to give us an idea of the quality of this release. I'd love to own this DVD but I was horribly burned with "Day of the Triffids" and have become gun-shy.

Cool late-70s gem Jan. 11 2009
By W. M. Berger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Slinky beauty Chantal Contouri and Blow-Up/Deep Red icon David Hemmings star in this oh-so-70s bit of nuanced weirdness about some upper-crust vampires who have automated their bloodlust by erecting a series of "blood farms," where "donors" walk around dazed and pale in plain white uniforms. The film is nicely done, with striking set pieces and plenty of surreal plot shifts. Thirst is part Clonus, part Prisoner episode, with a great 4:30-movie vibe throughout. If you like Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark or Burnt Offerings, Thirst will be a satisfying view.

Underated Vampire Thriller June 6 1999
By Eric Evans(EricRover5@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is one of the most convincing, scariest,believable Vampire movies ever made... yet very few people have even heard of it! Made in Australia, starring unknown actress Chantal Contouri,a woman against her will is taken to a Vampire retreat to be prepared for initiation into the world of the undead. Has modern overtones which most Vamp flicks lack.Well directed,plot is intruiging,keeps you moving along, and soundtrack is fantastic!Highly recommended by a Vampire film expert.This 'oughta quench your THIRST for a great Vampire flick!!!!

Aussie Vampire April 12 2003
By lecudedag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I saw this film at the cinema (as a double-bill with an equally rare film "The Silent Flute"). I was mesmerised by it, not least because of the sleekily sexy Chantal Contouri who plays Kate Davis, heiress to a vampire legacy.
These vampires are not fanged night-creatures (despite the cover-art; they actually only put in fanged dentures for the occasional ritual feast, otherise they drink blood from milk cartons). These vampires run a blood-farm where zombie-like young people are occasionally hooked up to machines and 'milked' of their blood.
The vampires want young Kate to join them, to mate with another blue-blood vampire.
The film, low-budgeted is quite well done.
Sadly, Chantal Contouri has not made many films. She appears older, but equally sexual in another Australian film "Offspring".
