THIRST is a Korean horror drama in which a priest volunteers for a medical experiment to find a vaccine that will cure a disease which is killing hundreds of people.

Violence

There is a scene in which a corkscrew is plunged into a man's chest, before being twisted, and which causes a huge blood spurt. In another scene, a man slices his own tongue with a shard of glass, and the blood subsequently drips into a dead woman's mouth as the man kisses her.

There are also a couple of scenes of strong threat. In one scene, a woman jabs a small pair of scissors into the open mouth of a sleeping man; however, she stops short of actually stabbing the mouth.

Sex

There is a prolonged sex scene in which a naked man thrusts into a naked woman. The scene also contains consensual violence, as the couple's pleasure is enhanced by the man biting the woman's neck and drinking her blood.

Language

There is a clear aggressive use of very strong language ('c**t') directed by a man towards a woman.
