Kiss of the Damned-2013

4 out of 5 Screams

Tagline:“Beautiful vampire Djuna (Josephine de La Baume) tries to resist the advances of the handsome, human screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia), but eventually gives in to their passion. When her troublemaker sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) unexpectedly comes to visit, Djuna’s love story is threatened, and the whole vampire community becomes endangered…”

Goddamn I hate vampires. I cant stand most vampire flicks. Its all been done.

But what would Vampire society be like in real life? How would they operate? What kind of day jobs would they have?

Sorry………… Night jobs.

Its a well thought out film. It addresses a whole host of real world problems that vampires would have. There are real consequences to randomly killing humans every night because you are hungry. In the real world, that wouldnt work. Would vampire culture sway towards superiority over their human counterparts? Or would they feel like a sub-species?

Those things are all addressed over dinner conversation. I found these nuances to be the best part of the film. The main plot was very good all on its own. yet I couldnt help but think about the issues that arise, when you become a child of the night.

Great film! Check it out!

Children of the 80’s will certainly appreciate it. It has the same vibe as “House of the Devil”. Its not set in the 80’s, but it has an overall vibe that leans towards that time.
