Park Chan-Wook has already established himself as a great director with such past hits as Sympathy for Mr. Vengence, Lady Vengence and Oldboy. With these hits he's shown his mastery of visceral violence and story telling ability, so it leaves me a bit excited to see what he can do with a vampire story. There is a guilty romance going on here as well and that's the beauty of Chan-Wook films, he not only shows plenty craziness, he can tell a story too. The dramatic angels I can only imagine will come across well.
Today, Focus Features has released a new clip from "Thirst". It's nothing earth shattering as far as crazy violence goes, but it does show a fun little angle to Sang-Hyuns coming to terms with his new self.
"Thirst" is due for a state-side release on July 31st. There will be a panel at the San Diego Comic Con Thursday night from 6:30 to 7:30 with Park Chan-Wook himself in attendance with a full screening to take place afterward.
