5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss of the Damned April 2, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Kiss of the Damned pays homage to Italian horror cinema and Hammer Horror films of the 1970's, minus a lot of the cheesy qualities that plagued some of those films, most of which were due to budget restraints. This film doesn't boast a huge budget either, but clearly director Alexandra "Xan" Cassavetes knows how to effectively spend that small budget. No doubt her famous families background in cinema has given her the necessary tools to be a talented director in her own right. Her brother Nick Cassavetes directed Alpha Dog and the Notebook, her father was Guy Woodhouse in Rosemary's Baby, and she has previously made a documentary, but her Silver Screen directorial debut is impressive.

Albeit a vampire movie, it is a quintessential vampire movie, sticking to the traditional mythos that horror fans have come to expect. None of this Twilight nonsense of sparkling in daylight and playing baseball. Kiss of the Damned vampires are brooding, sad and sexy. This films oozes sexuality, as it should. In sticking to the source material of Bram Stoker's Dracula, vampire stories should be a love story at the core, sensual, provocative, intense, sad and dark. This movie is all of those things, so in regards to being a traditional vampire story , it is one. Some may be displeased that this story doesn't push the envelope or tell a story we haven't really seen before, I personally don't mind. Vampires aren't real, you can really only do so much with vampire stories and they have kind of all been done already.

Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Rocky Balboa) as Paolo gives a strong performance as he usually does, and has great chemistry with the female lead Josephine de La Baume as Djuna (Johnny English Reborn, Boogie Woogie).

4.0 out of 5 stars Damned Awesome April 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I saw a trailer for this in a theater and turned to my friend and said, "This looks awful, but I would totally watch it." Then I found out it was written and directed by a daughter of John Cassavetes and it was available on demand, so I was intrigued and took a chance. Definitely the best vampire movie I've seen in a long time, stylish and less goofy than the trailer suggests. Retro and smart, glamorous and gritty, very satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars In Depth Take on a Worn Subject September 12, 2013
Format:DVD
I'm continually amazed how a subject which you think has no more gas left in the tank has new life breathed into it.

Here's the scoop. A screenwriter (Milo Ventmiglia) falls for a gal (Josephine de la Baume) who turns out to be a vampire. He finds this out but allows her to "turn" him because he's so in love with her. Her sister (also a vampire) arrives at the home and throws everything up for grabs.

Many have called this an homage to the 70's vampire flicks. Other than some cheesy, Euro sounding music from that period, I found this much better than what Hammer and like-minded studios were pushing back then. This is better all the way around. Certainly tech oriented aspects of film making have improved over the decades, so this looks a lot better than its predecessors. But the writing is much better as well. This digs deeper to the heart of what it's like to be a vampire in a human's world. There is even a rather philosophical discussion to that effect during one of the parties. Then there's sis, the loose cannon. The vampire community cannot afford to have someone like her running loose and killing at will. Her actions could destroy them in a heartbeat were she to draw too much attention. Then there's the acting. All the primary characters do a fine job. You build up sympathy for the two principals because they are genuinely in love. One odd note was the appearance of Michael Rapaport. He has nearly no screen time. How is it he's in this film? But I like him and he adds the weird Michael Rapaport 'thing' to the proceedings. But this is a very good effort overall.

I have a few years under my belt and have seen my share of vampire flicks. Too many of them offer up nothing new. So when something like this comes along, that whacks up the side of my head with a curve ball, it's well worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a ReAl VamPire FILm. August 28, 2013
By Arish
Format:DVD
This is really as good as it gets it has it all as far as the Vampire Genre. The seduction the mystery and the style that older vampire films had. There is only one other option out there and its called Byzantium which is a Neil Jordon film (Director of Interview with a Vampire). Great movie but staggers in alot of areas and takes itself really seriously. This film is just amazingly fun and sexy and well done. There really isn't much of a deep plot just two sisters that hate each other. One is good one is Evil and they are forced to live together temporararily by their superior. The good sister has a lover that she has turned at his own will. The sister is on a rampage through out the entire film including trying to intice her sisters lover. The movie suggest that the evil sister and there superior may have had a fling in the past. Who ever the evil sister is in the film she is extremely exotic and seductive in everthing she does. She pulls off her noncaring, no respect for the human kind and using them for her pleasure off very well. I saw her in one other film previously it was called Kaboom and she was a similiar character. This is a really good movie if you like a well done vampire film with class and seduction. The last really cool vampire film I have seen recently was Byzantium and before that was Rise of the Lycans (3rd installment of Underworld). Thats just how bad the vampire genre has gotton over the years. Sometimes modernizing a genre isn't as effective as sticking to the blueprint.
