Tony Scott must have been influenced by his brother's visual artistry in Bladerunner - the dark Gothic photography of the two movies are too similar. The Hunger even has a ruthless blond character played by David Bowie, similar to Rutger Hauer's in Bladerunner - both characters dying at a young age. Having a soft spot for vampire movies, I still enjoyed this very bloody story of an Egyptian vampire in New York. Contains a blood-sucking lesbian scene between Deneuve and Sarandon, apparently controversial by 80s standards.
Trivia: Watch for Willem Dafoe's split second role as an extra ("phone booth 2nd youth"!).
