"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.

Just what we need-another sophomoric, oversexed vampire movie.

The film serves as a surprisingly persuasive allegory for enduring virgin-whore expectations ...

A trashy vampire flick in art-film drag, Kiss of the Damned satisfies on neither level.

Kiss reimagines its bloodsuckers as horny, supercilious Eurotrash with addiction issues, sucking the life blood from naive American thrill-seekers.

Love streams and bloodstreams messily cross in a steamy but clunky plunge into vampire lore, hipster-indie style.
