AroView: A voracious vampire movie not afraid to explore the corrupting and liberating power of being undead, starring THE HOST’s burly Song Kang-ho as a priest whose run-in with a medical experiment transforms both his appetite and forbidden sexual longing.

Flying in the face of TWILIGHT’s dreamy vampire angst, director Park’s well-exercised palette of stylized sadism and vicious black comedy seems perfectly suited for a shakeup of the genre, and he willfully indulges in the un-pleasantries that others have ignored. That is to say, sex and violence feature outrageously throughout a film which, if sometimes nihilistic and not at all for the squeamish, is a twisted tale of blood and lust that ‘grown ups’ can finally sink their teeth into.

Synopsis: Sang-hyun, a priest working for a hospital, selflessly volunteers for a secret vaccine development project intended to eradicate a deadly virus. However, the virus eventually takes over the priest. He nearly dies, but makes a miraculous recovery by an accidental transfusion of vampire blood. He realises his sole reason for living: the pleasures of the flesh.
