    Synopsis


    Kiss of the Damned
    Writer/director Xan Cassavetes, daughter of John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, shifts gears from documentary to feature work with this offbeat horror opus. Set in New England, it tells the story of two sisters. Both are French vampires -- one evil, the other benevolent. Milo Ventimiglia plays a screenwriter who falls hard for the good sibling (Joséphine de la Baume), which incites the anger of the other sister (Roxane Mesquida). That young woman then decides to unleash fury on the local town. The cast also includes Riley Keough, Michael Rapaport, and Caitlin Keats; this marked Cassavetes' first directorial assignment following her 2004 documentary Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

      Indie Vampire Flick --- an acquired taste

      I purchased this because of Milo Ventimiglia. I have been a fan of his for a long time. I first saw Kiss of the Damned on Netflix and although I loved his scenes I didn't like/didn't understand the movie. After a second and third viewing it grew on me. The relationship between the characters (even the minor ones) are interesting. The world building also drew me in as well. The cinematography is beautiful even if the story/allure of vampires does not encapsulate you. Paolo, a screenwriter, becomes entranced with a woman D'Juna with a "skin condition".

      This isn't a masterpiece, but it's really entertaining as an homage to 1970's European vampire movies. It's beautifully shot, has a very cool soundtrack, and populated by beautiful people who are having a blast chewing up the scenery. I really enjoy this movie. And I was surprised to find there are even some extras considering it's such a cheap blu-ray. A commentary by the director and a few cast interviews.

      Milo Ventimiglia is the reason I bought this. Been a fan since Heroes, so it was worth it, for me. Good conflict set up by the sibling rivalry, so overall, a great movie for the Best Buy sale price.

      Movie had a good plot, it kept you on the edge of your set to the end. Was a romantic vampire movie.
