"Kiss of the Damned" seems to be for those who love such stories of "moral" vampires who live lives of beauty and love, which gives this slow-moving character drama a dreamlike quality. Director Xan Cassavetes has created a truly lovely piece of work, misted over with half-light and soft voices, but the denouement definitely leaves something to be desired.
Young screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia) meets a beautiful, exotic woman named Djuna (Josephine de La Baume), and instantly falls in love with her. At first, she seems shy of getting too intimate, and soon reveals why -- she's actually a vampire. But when they sleep together, she ends up drinking his blood and turning him into a vampire.
Paolo quickly moves in with Djuna, and the two of them begin a moonlit romance that can last for all of eternity. But then Djuna's sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) comes to stay with them for a week -- and her mind games and reckless blood-drinking throw their lives into turmoil. As Djuna introduces Paolo to the local circle of vampires, led by the actress Xenia (Anna Mouglalis), Mimi begins destroying their romance.
In many ways, "Kiss of the Damned" is a rather cliched vampire romance -- a vampire loves a mortal so much that she turns him so they can be together forever. Some lip service is paid to how awful it is to be rich, hot and immortal, but there aren't a lot of real problems. And oh yeah, the admirable vampires abstain from human blood.
But Xan Cassavetes wrings every last drop of sensuality from her movie.Read more ›
This was pretty standard stuff. Except for the Apple product placement this could have been an Italian 70's film with the acting, scenery and music.
A fair film for vampire lovers.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Roxane Mesquida, Joséphine de La Baume)
This is vampire movie for artsy fartsy folks,it looks better on the cover. It is a very slow story of a female vampire seducing a guy,turning him,then the sister wanting her fun and blah blah blah.
Some will lap this up as a vampire movie with a difference,oh it's all very cunningly ostentatious but hardly worth investing time in,just an opinion.
I'm not big on vampire movie anyway,this doesn't convert me.
I spent more time fast forwarding than I did watching.
hardly any soundtrack, a plot that had potential put fell flat, and the only decent actor in the whole lot couldn't cope, poor thing.
(he did so good in heroes, I hope this doesn't ruin his career.)

If you are a fan of old european vampyre movies then you will love this. If you are expecting a typical mainstream horror flick you will hate it.Published 10 months ago by booky
