The Hunger is a 1983 British horror film and the directorial debut of Tony Scott. It is the story of a love triangle between a doctor (Susan Sarandon) who specializes in sleep and aging research and a counter-culture vampire couple (Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie). The film is a loose adaptation of the 1981 novel of the same name by Whitley Strieber, with a screenplay by Ivan Davis and Michael Thomas. The cinematography was by Stephen Goldblatt.
The film was screened out of competition at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival.
The film has found a cult following that responded to its dark, glamorous atmosphere. The Bauhaus song "Bela Lugosi's Dead" plays over the introductory credits and beginning. The film is popular with some segments of the goth subculture and inspired a short-lived TV series of the same name.
