2.0 out of 5 stars Weak Spanish occultism mish-mash 22 Oct 2011
By Zaroff
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Euro cinema from the 70's is usually interesting, either visually, thematically or just plain plummeting into weirdsville. More often than not an obscure auteur has no budget but has thrown in exploitation elements & has risen above the limitations of the arena. Regretably this obscure item may have been made out of some enthusiasm but im damn'd if i can detect much over a lonnnng 90mins, other than ineptitude.

Inept acting, narrative, lighting & editing pace. Oh, and a cumbersome flimsy soundtrack. I could run on about the lack of anything interesting happening, but i really can't muster the energy, this film sapped me completely. The simple drawback of everything lit up in some of the worst 'modern' seventies style is bland & lacks atmosphere, which this sorry piece of plod seriously needed. The eccentric plotting throwing in a zombie, a lecherous oddball, & mesmerist & occultic satanist gal sounds fun when you type it. However, a lot of time is spent on women getting into bed, then out of them again, either lit or unlit depending on who has the larger frontage. The narrative lapses whenever skin isn't on display into a villainess explaining every damn'd plot point or unending spools of exposition, which seems amateurish and inept. Did i mention it was inept?..

Try something more offbeat with a bit of panache or at least a bombardment of barmy, like Devil's Nightmare or Nude for Satan or even Satan's Blood, they may be oddly tacky but they have what this lacks cinematically, creating a compelling nostalgia for an era when cinema could actually surprise you beyond mere titilation & tainted exploitation.

On the plus side this release comes with not only a reversible sleeve but a concise booklet. Quite a lot of effort for such a continental yawn.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expected more 18 Dec 2011
By BPR
Format:DVD
Arrow Films have somewhat re-established themselves recently, becoming one of the more interesting independent distributors the United Kingdom has to offer. Although they have released a lot of their recent output previously, they are now making a big(ger) name for themselves with the overall packages. Lesser-known gems of horror, some established giallos and even some good old fashioned action have all been faithfully brought to DVD and Blu-ray with a few things fans just love... booklets... a choice of up to five cover artworks from Arrow's own to original poster art... well thought out extras... it's not often titles that aren't big studio titles are given so much love. Sure, picture quality is sometimes harder to work on due to the nature of the titles, but Arrow really should be commended for bringing these titles to market. Recently, they started a low budget range called ArrowDrome, a range from which "The Devil's Kiss" comes from.

The synopsis from Arrow reads:
Claire Grandier (Silvia Solar) is a medium with one thing on her mind... blood drenched vengeance. She's a psychic black widow who'll stop at nothing to destroy the Duke De Haussement (Jose Nieto), the man she holds responsible for her husband's untimely death. After charming her way into the creepy basement of the Duke's crumbling castle on the promise of revealing occult secrets, she sets to work with a sick professor and a twisted dwarf, creating a demon-possessed Frankenstein zombie who's programmed to kill in this demented and mixed up Spanish classic from director Jordi Gigo (Porno Girls). Outrageous 1970s fashion and bizarre devilry collide with every cliché in the gothic horror manual for a wild ride into sleazy retro Euro-terror.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Only The Prince Of Darkness Can Assist Us!"... 1 Sep 2013
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Claire Gandler (Silvia Solar) and her cohort, "the Professor" use mad science and eeevil occult means in order to exact revenge on an unsuspecting Duke. They plan to re-animate the dead, and set out right away, digging up graves. Of course, beautiful women are in the castle, so female nudity erupts every few minutes. Will Claire and company create their satanic, killer zombie? If so, will anyone be able to control it? DEVIL'S KISS (aka: PRINT OF THE DEVIL) has every element that a schlock film fanatic wants. No expense has been spared in creating this masterwork! SEE the pre-credits voodoo dance! WITNESS the ultra-mod fashion show, featuring the latest in groovy, polyester attire! WATCH the resurrection of the hideous Franken-ghoul! HEAR the terror-ific organ music whenever anything even remotely dramatic happens! Wha? Oh, someone is taking off their clothes again. Has it been 5 minutes already?...

3.0 out of 5 stars Dull 23 Feb 2004
By Blahblahblah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A widow blames her husband's suicide upon a group of aristocrats who subsequently grabbed up all of his estate, leaving her destitute. She studies the arcane, pronounces her allegiance to the devil, and decides to create a Frankenstein monster in order to wreak vengeance. She funds her studies by performing seances under a new name until one of her intended victims hires her, recognizes her, and decides to finance her and provide her with facilities for her research into the arcane, in which he shares an interest. Most of this history is provided through narrative. The bulk of the film then deals with her eventually creating a monster (a tall, bald man who keeps one eye shut, is covered in white powder and has scars drawn on with mascara) while keeping her exact activities secret from her clueless benefactor. Except for a hillarious early 1970s fashion show sequence, and a little cheese here and there, this film is extremely dull and moves far more slowly than any of the old Hammer Frankenstein movies, while lacking their wit. It does have an evil dwarf (a guilty pleasure of mine), but he is completely wasted (he just hides in the basement until the villainess decides to kill him for no reason). As with most bad horror films, the police who investigate the various murders(when we finally get to them), as well as all those occupying the castle where this all takes place, fail to get a clue until the very end of the film.
Although I also consider Lady Frankenstein to be weaker than any of the Hammer Frankenstein films, it is a better female-lead Frankenstein-style-monster film than Devil's Kiss. In conclusion, this film is a renter, not a buyer. It may be worth noting the director never made a second horror film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beyond dull 6 Jan 2014
By Ronald Gaskin - Published on Amazon.com
They killed the only interesting character...the blonde house keeper. A gratuitously unnecessary death. The combination of science and demonology is interesting too but not too entertaining. Over voiced translated version is done pretty well. I'll take any Hammer production over this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old And Creepy 5 Jan 2014
By edaddy - Published on Amazon.com
These older movies puts the mind in Hammer Films of Horror. I like these types of films due to the directors focus on the "watcher of the film". Good but not great. No spoilers here.
