Quotes

Julian Priest: We see what we expect to see and feel what we expect to feel. And if we expect to be afraid then we will be afraid. But that's a fool's game. If you live your life in anticipation of doom and the certainty of it; if you know it'll find you and overwhelm you, why fight it?

Meaningless, empty minies with impressive images
24 January 1999 | by (Dombóvár, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Scott Free produced this series based upon the Tony Scott movie 'The Hunger'.

The meaningless stories have talented directors like Russel Mulcahy or the Scott brothers. Unknown actors and actresses play among the soft-sex, soft-horror elements and the impressive production design.

So if you want sex, see something else. You like mystery? See the 'X-files'. Looking for crime? Stay tuned with 'Columbo'. But don't even waste your time on 'The Hunger'. Unless you want something called 'art'.
