Summary: The jungle caves of The Thirsty Dead are the new residence of a kidnapped stewardess, a go-go dancer and other young women snatched from the streets of Manila. Ruled by a 500-year-old disembodied head-in-a-box and a dragon-lady high priestess, this cult of immortals can live forever by dining on blood.

Our Ranking

short review:

Mildly suspenseful Jungle-Adventure with nearly no blood-scenes at all. The bad guys believe in prolonging their life-span by drinking the blood of their victims and think of themselves as the Chosen Ones.
Some nice new territory for a Non-Classic-Vampire movie, but nothing you will miss, if you havn't seen it yet.
