Goofs

When the city's water supply is shut off the fountain of city hall can be seen going off as well. This would not happen as fountains are not dependent on water mains for operation. See more »

A small guilty pleasure...

Thirst

A chemical engineer struggles to find a way to kill a deadly parasite that has infiltrated a town's water supply.

Let's face it: 'Thirst' is an extremely silly film, and there's a few too many movements in the plot that would have absolutely no chance of occurring in that thing called the real world (a world which I'm sure seems alien to Hollywood at times). But while 'Thirst' is very nearly mediocre, I already feel like I'm raining on the parade of the film, as it's just too hard not to become marginally interested in the mayhem that ensues. 'Thirst' is a very run-of-the-mill production, even for a television movie, but it gets by thanks to its sheer energy. It's a small guilty pleasure, but there's some downright irritating acting from a sizeable portion of the cast here, and this partially bulldozes the arid thrills of 'Thirst'.

~ 6/10 ~
