Maxx and his girlfriend Lisa are a pair of recovering drug addicts whom are recruited by a clan of sex & violence crazed vampires led by the egotistical and charismatic Darius. But to become members, Maxx and Lisa have to give up their humanity and become vampires themselves. As Maxx and Lisa adopt to their new lifestyle of immortality with all the advantages and disadvantages, their addiction to drugs now turns to addiction to human blood and each new 'fix' leads them deeper into debauchery. Will these two rookie vampires find salvation, or be damned to all eternity of their latest thirst for blood?Written by
The cast includes several actors who appeared in the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Clare Kramer (who appeared as the god-like Glory)l; Tom Lenk (who played would-be supervillain Andrew); and Serena Scott Thomas (who played Faith's evil mentor, Gwendolyn Post).

When Maxx accepts his new "life" and leaves on his motorcycle to meet Macey he has no helmet, then "he" has a helmet while on the road, and then when he arrives he has no helmet again. Obviously, their rider for the street shot wore a helmet to be legal. See more »
Now and then I have to vent on those who play at death. It makes me hard to see them cry.

Director Jeremy Kasten makes a ''pause'' on his normal work as documentaries' editor to bring us The Thirst,his third film,which is a very fun vampire film which has interesting ideas,good performances and a lot of blood.The publicity for this film says ''a mixture between Requiem for a Dream and Near Dark''.The Thirst is not as good as that brilliant films but it has the same themes that films have(addiction and contemporary vampires,respectively).The themes of vampires and addiction appeared on a lot of films(like in The Addiction,directed by the great Abel Ferrara).But The Thirst adds some innovative and ingenious things to the story.The performances are very good from Matt Keeslar to Adam Baldwin without forgetting Jeremy Sisto.Also,the film is pretty gory and I always appreciate that on a horror film.The Thirst is a pretty fun movie which does not only shows blood,but also some interesting ideas.
