The Egyptian vampire lady Miriam subsists upon the blood of her lovers. In return the guys or girls don't age... until Miriam has enough of them. Unfortunately that's currently the case with John, so his life expectancy is below 24 hours. Desperately he seeks help from the famous Dr. Sarah Roberts. She doesn't really belive his story, but becomes curious and contacts Miriam ... and gets caught in her ban, too. Written by

In The Celluloid Closet
(1995), the 1995 documentary about the history of homosexuality in film, actress Susan Sarandon
said that the screenplay for The Hunger
(1983) originally called for her to be demonstrably drunk in the lead-up to her sex scene with Catherine Deneuve
, but Sarandon asked for it to be changed so that her character had only a single sip of wine and then spilled the rest of the glass. She said she wanted to make it clear that her character was choosing to have sex with Miriam instead of doing it because of the alcohol, and also because "you wouldn't have to get drunk to bed Catherine Deneuve
, I don't care what your sexual history to that point had been". See more
