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 Amazon.com ($9.99 on either service), and is expected in cinemas in May. Watch the trailer below.
