Audience Reviews for The Kiss


A middle class suburban family discovers that one side of the clan dabbles with the occult and not in the cutesy Hocus Pocus/Practical Magic sort of way. Played ominous from the outset there are some scares here, although with a nearly equal amount of "the dumb characters doing dumb things" schtick that plagues horror films like the Ebola virus gone rabid. The question becomes: does one care about the proceedings enough to stick with it?
I didn't.
