American Thirst One-Sheet Also Lacks Bite

Taking a page out of Korea's book, Focus Features released the official domestic one-sheet for Park Chan-wook's vampire opus Thirst, which like the Korean poster is void of most of the original poster's naughty bits!

You know, because we fragile conservative Americans obviously can't handle a little cleavage or leg. That would just be disastrous to us as a society!

Thirst finds Korea's leading man, Song Kang-ho (The Host), as a much-loved priest who becomes a vampire after a failed medical experiment; he becomes a tortured and depraved soul.

Compare the two posters below and look for the film in theatres on July 31st!

Chainsaw's picture

The oddest thing in all this is that they repositioned his hand too, so that it's on his hip...possibly. Whuh?

I think either poster looks cool, and the only thing I think that's weird about the non-leggy one is that it kinda misses the point...that the woman forms a 'v'...for 'vampire'...

As it is, the new poster is just a kinda cool poster with no subtext...

Both posters make the movie look like a sequel to LUST/CAUTION and certainly not like a horror film about vampirism.
