A few pictures from the opening scene to 1983’s “The Hunger” based on the novel of the same name by Whitley Streiber.  This is probably my favorite part of the movie with two predators seeking prey among the seething throngs of a darkened club to the strains of Bauhaus, then leading them back to their lair with the promise of physical pleasure before taking their blood in an act of savage betrayal. I just wish the rest of the movie had been as good.

 I particularly love that last image.

(Seriously, who could turn down an invitation to go home with David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve?)

Oh how I’d love to find a replica of the ankh pendant from The Hunger. 

Not that there are many dagger-ended ankhs to be found. I did find the Ankh of the Dead from Alchemy Gothic floating around— is that the same one? Would gothiccharmschool know?

The Ankh of the Dead from Alchemy Gothic is similar in style, but not an exact replica. I do know someone who used to make much more accurate replicas out of sterling silver (waaaaaay back in the day, early 90s), and he says he’s going to get back to producing them, but I’m waiting to hear back from him. 

(Yes, I still have mine, but this is one of those iconic pieces of jewelry that I really REALLY want to have a back-up of.)

The Hunger (1983)

Have I mentioned that I’m waiting for SOMEONE to write a crossover fic of the opening of this movie + Adam and Eve from Only Lovers Left Alive? Two vampire couples , warily eyeing each other across a nightclub?

How to tell when Auntie Jilli is taking a break from whatever writing project she’s working on: a spike in searches on the keywords “silver ankh”, in the vain hope that she’ll eventually find a replica of the ankh from The Hunger.
(No, not the Ankh of the Dead from Alchemy Gothic. She already has that one.)

Hmmph, writing is just not happening for me tonight. I’m going to spend the rest of the evening watching The Hunger and crushing a velvet skirt.

I don’t think any vampire movie will ever have a better opening set of scenes.
