We need our storytellers to do more than draw painfully obvious parallels between drinking blood and making love.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

Writer-director Xan Cassavetes is trying to go beyond the usual boundaries of the vampire genre. She doesn't quite succeed, but at least she tries.

November 13, 2013
The screenplay is cliched and simplistic melodrama that drags even if the images and some of the operatic music quotes are lush.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
November 8, 2013
Though high-brow, erotic and smart, the retro vampire pic lays an egg because its mostly foreign cast screws up the mood piece with uniformly wooden performances.

a significantly more mature - and sexy - take on vampire romance, approaching its subject with sophistication and sensuality even as it indulges in gore and terror that's as metaphorical as it is visceral.

Manages to add a new wrinkle to one of cinema's oldest and hoariest genres.

"Kiss of the Damned" is rather a hoot.

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

May 5, 2013
Just about any episode of True Blood is sexier, more entertaining and thought-provoking than Kiss of the Damned.
May 3, 2013
A rare treat, especially for those who like to see grindhouse-oriented subject matter done with intelligence and substance.

May 3, 2013
The pleasure of the film doesn't lie in the plot; it's all about the sultry, horror-tinged mood that Cassavetes manufactures.
May 3, 2013
The confident, female-driven sensuality of "Kiss of the Damned" anchors this handsome nonsense.

May 3, 2013
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.

an evocative experience that's high on mood and short on shivers

May 2, 2013
'Kiss of the Damned' does not advance confidently enough in the direction of its nightmares to rise above the fanged pack.
May 2, 2013
More of a macabre snapshot than a cohesive picture, capturing a specific throb of sexuality that helps to ignore frustratingly slack storytelling.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
May 2, 2013
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.
