Movie Info

Teenager Sandra (Molly Parker) is obsessed with death, so much so that after wandering into a funeral home she wishes to be a mortician. But this fascination becomes highly sexual, as Sandra develops a taste for necrophilia. Her secret passion doesn't cause any problems until she goes to college and meets medical student Matt (Peter Outerbridge), who soon falls for the unusual young lady. She comes clean about her morbid sexuality, but turning her on to the world of the living is no easy task.

    Boldly yet tenderly delves into the depths of perverse sexuality. Sandra is an incurable necrophiliac who gets a job at a funeral home and studies embalming in order to commune with a corpse's true essence, plus gains the perk of having plenty of dead bodies to choose from. Then she meets medical student Matt who has difficulty coming to grips with her morbid predilection. If those opening sentences haven't scared you away already, then there's a chance you may get engrossed with this peculiar love story. Under Lynne Stopkewich's tasteful direction the material is reduced from shocking to unsettling - scenes like a young Sandra rubbing dead animals over her body are still sure to set people squirming in their seats. She describes her attraction to the deceased, but mostly in an obtuse manner that remains difficult to understand. That confusion is the same situation that her boyfriend Matt must find himself, and with 20 minutes remaining I correctly foresaw the direction of the movie, which actually manages to reach both a sad yet satisfying conclusion. The pokey pacing is a hindrance, but the screenplay smartly knows when to bow out gracefully after a tidy 78 minutes. I admire the audacity behind the willingness to make this movie, although I have a hard time offering an outright recommendation. Judge for yourself. I am glad, however, to see that Molly Parker's career didn't end here, taking a part which surely could've been a career-killer, and has since appeared in over 20 films.

    Kissed is the Citizen Kane of films involving necrophilia. it's directed very well by Lynne Stopkewich in lighting, cinematography and an emotional way of exploring the subject. I really can't think of any other film where the corpse is a male and a living breathing woman is female. This is not an exploitation movie about having sex with the dead, but an art movie about loving them romantically. The central character, played by Molly Parker, has had a fascination with death since being a child. She isn't obsessed, she just finds it compelling. It is difficult to recommend or even mention this film without getting odd looks, or questions about your own sexual behavior. But this film isn't about exploring a sexual perversion, but questioning the boundaries of love, sex, death, and the search for transcendence. Well done. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=kissed.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/kissed.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    The great Molly Parker-Lynne Stopkewich effort about the sexual feelings towards the dead expressed by the main character. Worth seeing but it isn't exactly on the frequent play list since.

    About a girl at a mortuary who finds an attraction to the dead bodies - it sounds bad, but actually it's quite tastefully done, and offers an interesting insight.
