Kiss of the Damned preview before theatres

The latest vampire movie to hit the big screen isn’t out yet, but that doesn’t have to stop you from watching it. Kiss of the Damned stars Joséphine de La Baume, Roxane Mesquida and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes) and follows Milo’s character, a screen writer who has escaped to Connecticut for the peace and quiet, only to find himself falling in love with vampire Djuna.

Turned, Paolo begins to adjust to life as a vampire while Djuna’s troublemaker sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) arrives for a week and the happy couple are thrown into chaos. As Mimi’s destructive behavior worsens and drags in other members of the New York vampire community, their lives become endangered.

The film is a refreshing return to an old style of vampire movie; sexy, sophisticated, dark and bloody. The characters are not simply black & white, good versus evil, each battles temptation and not always winning. When Paolo was introduced to the New York community, we discover an urbain cocktail party that turns into a saloon for intelligent discussion on the evolution of the vampire. The vampire guests include Anton (Tarnation’s Jonathan Caouette) and Hans (Shortbus’ Jay Brannan).

Kiss of the Damned is now available to rent from iTunes and ($9.99 on either service), and is expected in cinemas in May. Watch the trailer below.

  1. Good movie and pretty entertaining. The only disappointing aspect was hardly any fang action from Milo. Small transformation scene wish it was more.

    1. Yes, that was missing. I got the sense at that party that the vampires would be willing to couple up with anyone. There seemed to be at least one guy into Paulo. And the characters of Anton and Hans were setting my the gaydar (that or those actors can’t do straight).

  2. Exactly. I think there was one set of gay vamps and I’m sure the others would have joined in. Still disappointed there was a lack of fangs among the male vamps.
