Fantastic Fest presents THIRST! Free Advance Screening

thirst-blog“Where Oldboy was a roaring masterpiece, Thirst is a quiet one. Both equally affecting at haunting and staying with you long after the end credits are gone.”

This one would have played Fantastic Fest this year, but it opens in theaters too soon. We are ecstatic, however, to bring this film to Austin for a sneak a peek at what’s sure to be the best Korean Priest-turned-Vampire psycho-thriller of the decade.  Alamo South Lamar, July 29, 7:00pm!

Beloved and devoted priest from a small town volunteers for a medical experiment which fails and turns him into a vampire. Physical and psychological changes lead to his affair with a wife of his childhood friend who is repressed and tired of her mundane life. The one-time priest falls deeper in despair and depravity. As things turns for worse, he struggles to maintain whats left of his humanity.

How to get in:
Attention Fantastic Fest 2009 badge-holders! If you want to attend this free advance screening, RSVP to this event on the Fantastic Fest facebook page. We will have a list at will call of all certified badge-holders who RSVP’d on facebook for admission to the show- first come, first seated.  There will be a stand-by line at the theater for non-badge-holders to fill any remaining seats. If you RSVP, you must be at the theater at least half an hour before showtime.

Fantastic Fest September 24 – October 1, 2009
