Two outcasts from society, the drug-addicted Hulda and the thousand-year-old gay vampire Hjörtur, bond over shared experiences of loneliness, unloved affection, and a lack of direction in their lives. Meanwhile, an evil cult is trying to bring about the apocalypse, a nosy detective is investigating Hulda, and Hjörtur is cruising for men to meet for a bite. Blood splatters, limbs are shred, ominous fog covers the land, and rain pours as Hjörtur screams to the sky over his yearning of fresh flesh. With rocking synth music, over-the-top gore, and ultra-slick lighting, this film is a delicious and campy homage to the monster and slasher movies of the eighties. THIRST shows that no matter how much you may feel shunned and unwanted by the world, you are not alone. Somewhere, there is a person, a tribe – or a vampire – waiting to welcome you as one of their own.
