We need our storytellers to do more than draw painfully obvious parallels between drinking blood and making love.

Xan Cassavetes attempts to bring sexy back to the true vampire horror genre, but a story as bland as Djuna's pale skin detracts from Kiss Of The Damned's physical beauty.

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

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

The screenplay is cliched and simplistic melodrama that drags even if the images and some of the operatic music quotes are lush.

Just about any episode of True Blood is sexier, more entertaining and thought-provoking than Kiss of the Damned.

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.

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

'Kiss of the Damned' does not advance confidently enough in the direction of its nightmares to rise above the fanged pack.

Xan Cassavetes cops to nothing more significant than being more keen on Vampyros Lesbos than anyone else from her clan of famous cinephiles.

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

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

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.

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

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

Quiet but interesting, clever enough to make horror fans happy, and sexy in a way that only a good indie vampire movie can be.
