The Egyptian vampire lady Miriam subsists upon the blood of her lovers. In return the guys or girls don't age until Miriam has had enough of them. Unfortunately that's currently the case with John, so his life expectancy is less than 24 hours. Desperately he seeks help from, the famous, Dr. Sarah Roberts.

Ironically, in the credits Willem Dafoe is identified as "2nd Phone Booth Youth"; whereas, he is the first "Phone Booth Youth" to be seen and speak in the Phone Booth scene. Likewise, John Pankow is noted in the credits as "1st Phone Booth Youth"; whereas, he is actually the second "Phone Booth Youth" to be seen and say his lines. See more »
Roger Ebert found The Hunger ¨an agonizingly bad vampire movie, circling around an exquisitely effective sex scene.¨ Certainly, in his first feature film, Tony Scott already set his future standards for style over content. (or did perhaps he only need an excuse for getting Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon in bed together?) Style's OK, but plot coherence might help a little. This is just a polished lesbian fantasy posed aggressively as a horror flick, which resulted weird and hardly satisfactory.
