Tony Scott's 1983 Vampire Flick 'The Hunger' Bound for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Jul 8, 2015 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The film stars Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon, and David Bowie.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive Collection is set to release 'The Hunger' on Blu-ray sometime this summer.

Miriam Blaylock collects Renaissance art, ancient Egyptian pendants, lovers, souls. Alive and fashionably chic in Manhattan, Miriam is an ageless vampire. "Vampire" is not a word you'll hear in this movie based on the novel by Whitley Strieber ('Wolfen'). Instead, debuting feature director Tony Scott stakes out a hip, sensual, modern-gothic makeover. Catherine Deneuve radiates macabre elegance as Miriam, bless with beauty, cursed with bloodlust. David Bowie is fellow fiend and refined husband John. In love, in life, in longing they are inseparable. But when John abruptly begins to age and turns to a geriatrics researcher (Susan Sarandon) for help, Miriam soon eyes the woman as a replacement for John. The Hunger is insatiable.

Specs have yet to be finalized, but supplements include: audio commentary by Susan Sarandon and Director Tony Scott and the original theatrical trailer.
