As The Thirst starts up, it wouldn't come to a surprise if one were to think this is an absolutely horrible flick just by watching the first few minutes. Between some horrid acting and just some generally confusing plot elements, it is easy to think this. Still, there's something about The Thirst that keeps you watching, and there's some depraved fun to be had as well, even though that doesn't last quite long. Matt Keeslar (Masters of Horror: Family) and Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) star as a couple who are recovering addicts, and both get drawn to a vampire clan led by accent-changing Darius (Jeremy Sisto). It isn't long before blood starts gushing like water, and the two face a new addiction while they begin to rebel against their new "family". While there is a great amount of blood, gore, and nasty moments, The Thist doesn't offer a whole lot. There are many times when its small budget becomes too aparrent, and many of the action and effects sequences don't help things either. Even the supporting cast, which includes Serena Scott Thomas, Tom Lenk (another Buffy vet), Neil Jackson (Blade: The Series), and the great Adam Baldwin come off as not being too interested in what's going on. Still, there's enough bloody and nasty moments to hold your attention, and for that alone, The Thirst is worth a look for vampire flick fans.
