Plot synopsis: Sang-hyun (played by top Korean star Song Kang-ho of The Host) is a priest who cherishes life; so much so that he selflessly volunteers for a secret vaccine development project meant to eradicate a deadly virus. But the virus takes the priest, and a blood transfusion is urgently ordered up for him. The blood he receives is infected, so Sang-hyun lives—but now exists as a vampire. Struggling with his newfound carnal desire for blood, Sang-hyun’s faith is further strained when a childhood friend’s wife, Tae-ju (Kim Ok-vin), comes to him asking for his help in escaping her life. Sang-hyun soon plunges into a world of sensual pleasures, finding himself on intimate terms with the Seven Deadly Sins.

‘Thirst’ opens in select U.S. theaters July 31.

Ok. I get it now.

I was googling/researching for some cast and release date info for what I thought was GUILLERMO DEL TORO’s new vampire movie, ‘THE STRAIN’, and came up empty. A new trailer has been released (which you can view below).

But it turns out, ‘THE STRAIN isn’t a movie. It’s a book that Del Toro wrote with author CHUCK HOGAN.

So then. Check out a sneak-peek “trailer” of Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain, the start of a new vampire trilogy. More info at www.thestrainthebook.com.

And stop confusing thee Thrall World.
