Dripping with bespectacled cool, The Hunger is a rightful cult classic of the vamp genre. Set in New York City, Catherine Deneuve stars as Miriam — an immortal new wave queen of the night. Her centuries-old partner John (David Bowie) looks just as youthful and stylish as her and they stay alive by feeding on young couples they meet in clubs while posing as classical music teachers. When John suddenly begins to age, he fears Miriam has lured him into an elaborate trap and seeks out Dr Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon). Though disbelieving at first, Sarah is soon pulled into their (under)world, seduced by the magnetic Miriam into bed and beyond.
