|I got a "habit" for scarfing down fries & burgers.|
|I will mock those thirsty losers with my super-green drink!|
Five poor suckers get kidnapped by a crazy bearded redhead (who bears a resemblance to one of my college professors) who suffered childhood trauma in a car accident. With a similar agenda as Jigsaw from the Saw movies, the experiment demonstrates to what lengths a person will go to survive.

In contrast to Hunger, Thirst has its victims stranded in the seemingly infinite open space of the desert. Bryan and Noelle are a young couple who, according to hard-working Bryan, "married too early" and he is having second thoughts about the marriage. Noelle is a diligent med student who brings her textbooks on vacation. Photographer Tyson and model "Atheria" invite them to a photo shoot in the desert which they promise will take no time at all. Bullshit.
To be honest, I enjoyed Thirst more than Hunger -- overall the characters were more likeable and the circumstances seemed more believable. There is also a crazy, unpredictable twist leading to the ending that only a pre-med student could call. One of the characters in Hunger is also a nurse, and she describes what happens to your system when it goes without food. I found that fascinating, but it couldn't save the movie.
