Thirst (R1) in November
Universal Studios Home Entertainment have announced Region 1 DVD release of Thirst on 17th November 2009 priced at $29.98 SRP. From director Park Chan-wook (OldBoy) comes this original vampire story with a chilling, erotic style. A blood transfusion saves the life of a priest, but also transforms him into a vampire. He struggles to control his insatiable thirst for blood until a love affair unleashes his darkest desires in deadly new ways.
No extras are listed. The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen with Korean DD5.1 Surround audio and subtitles in English (burned in), English SDH, French and Spanish. We’re not sure how the burned in English subs will work when there are also options for French and Spanish, but I’m sure Universal have listed films in this way before and they turned out to be optional.
