Gother Than Thou
“The Hunger” opens with the by now familiar Goth anthem “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus. Not a bad way to open a vampire film, though nowadays it would seem almost a parody. “Undead undead undead” indeed. Enter Cathy and Bowie into a slick, sleek, neon nightclub, filled to the rafters with post-punks & pre-Goths playing dead. Too bad they weren’t as ready for the real thing as they thought they were. You see, Cathy and Bowie are vampires.
This is a visually stunning film, making up for in effects what it sometimes lacks in coherence. It seems that lovely, immortal Cathy, called Miriam, is a vampire queen who has been around since the Sphinx was built, apparently. Bowie is her consort, a once mortal man whose two hundred-odd year lifespan is suddenly winding down at a frighteningly rapid rate. Desperate to find a cure, he seeks out scientist Susan Sarandon, who at first disbelieves Bowie’s claims, but is soon convinced when the young and handsomely androgynous man suddenly ages over the course of a few hours time into a decrepit ruin. Miriam, who has had countless lovers over the centuries, gives Bowie the heave-ho and turns her attention to lovely young Sarandon. But Sarandon, though initially easy to seduce (in an erotic lesbian scene) proves to have a will stronger than Miriam’s, and Miriam’s habit of keeping her collection of ex-lovers cadavers close at hand, proves to be a mistake.
This is a strange film, almost as cold and dispassionate as one might well imagine a vampire to be. It seems to hold the viewer at arms length, not allowing them to experience the emotions of the characters…but the characters, for the most part, are severely lacking in emotion anyway, so the stark emptiness of the film becomes a brilliant mirror. Some vampire enthusiasts might find this boring and confusing, but it’s a good effort and not a total loss.
The three main characters are worth watching simply for their amazing beauty and grace. Tony Scott (brother of Ridley) has made a nice, if somewhat bizarre and chilling, work of art here and, like most works of art, it’s up for interpretation.
Starts off rather good, but has real second half issues.
This one started off good, but as soon as David Bowie exits the movie, it really goes downhill as the next part of the movie seems rather rushed and underdeveloped. The story is about a vampire lady and her various loves. I guess that is what it is about because the movie as a whole doesn’t really explain things very well. Stuff happens and you are left wondering just what happened. I think though that has more to do with the fact I watched the movie on regular television so it was a bit cut up to shreds. The movie starts with a rather somber and sad little tale with the vampire girl and her lover played very well by Bowie luring a couple to their home. They don’t kill how regular vampires kill. As the story moves forward, Bowie’s character seems to be aging rather rapidly…his time is apparently nearly up. Unfortunately, he is not allowed to die, but rather face an eternity of rotting in the vampire gal’s collection of lovers. Though she does seemingly care for each and every one of them. Then the story races to the finish as the vampire girl really moves fast to fill the void…to fast as this is where the story feels really rushed. At one point Susan Surandon’s character does something with a cross either stabbing herself or the vampire…I couldn’t tell. Then the movie franticly races to a bizarre zombie like scene and then the end which sort of makes sense. If only it could have ended after Bowie left the picture.
