"Kiss of the Damned" is rather a hoot.

An ambitious, if deeply flawed, vampire love story ...

The confident, female-driven sensuality of "Kiss of the Damned" anchors this handsome nonsense.

Cassavetes can film an erotic encounter worthy of the 1970s and the golden age of sex scenes, and that is no small compliment these days.

"Kiss of the Damned" tries to give the vampire movie something it most definitely does not need: class.

What distinguishes Kiss Of The Damned is its look, which combines the garish gore and muted tones of '70s Euro-horror with the subtle glow of modern moviemaking; and its sound design, which frequently mixes in a hellish throb.

Audience Reviews for Kiss Of The Damned

A newly turned vampire adjusts to life with his undead lover, but her reckless human-hunting sister threatens their undercover lifestyle. Some good erotic scenes, but KISS takes itself ridiculously seriously for what is essentially a sexy vampire movie that almost could play on Skinemax.

An excitingly fresh vampire movie (in the way World War Z and 28 Days Later was fresh for zombies). Less action than expected, but more drama. Refreshing retro feel to the film/cinematography/audio. Recommended even for non-horor fans.

Dark and gritty, Kiss of the Damned is a morose and uninspired vampire tale. After a femme fatale named Djuna sires a writer to be her vampire lover her sister Mimi comes to stay with them, but Mimi's reckless ways threaten to expose the local vampire community. The story is unfocused and doesn't follow through on the plot threads that are set up. Additionally, the acting is weak and the characters are underdeveloped. Mundane and lifeless, Kiss of the Damned is an insipid horror film that's poorly crafted.
