A pair of chic vampire lovers spend nights stalking New York’s downtown club scene in search of fresh victims. When the illusion of everlasting life begins to crumble, the pair lure a bi-curious medical researcher into their blood-thirsty tryst. Tony Scott’s feature debut is classic yet utterly contemporary and cutting edge, and marks the strange intersection between the eternal and the momentary now, mixing ancient blood with new.
This screening features an introduction by freelance film critic and film programmer Dr Anton Bitel (University of Oxford).
This screening is part of Blood & Celluloid: Vampire Film Festival 2022. For more info and to get your festival pass for all five films, click on the “Vampire Film Festival” button below.
‘The Hunger is all visual and aural flash, although this modern vampire story looks so great, as do its three principal performers, and is so bizarre that it possesses a certain perverse appeal.’
‘What makes The Hunger so much fun is its knowing stylishness’
Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
