Thanks Cam,
synopsis (taken from IMDB.)
Beloved and devoted priest from a small town volunteers for a medical experiment which fails and turns him into a vampire. Physical and psychological changes lead to his affair with a wife of his childhood friend who is repressed and tired of her mundane life. The one-time priest falls deeper in despair and depravity. As things turns for worse, he struggles to maintain whats left of his humanity.

He's also remaking Sympathy For Lady Vengeance, I imagine a watered down version for the western markets. Favourite in the Asian cinema world at the moment for me is Johnnie To's Mad Detective. Very clever and if you think you're good for working out the order people got killed in Reservoir Dogs' Mexican Standoff then you've got a challenge at the end of this one. (No spoiler)
