Evan Dickson caught a screening of Xan Cassavetes’ Kiss of the Damned at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Available on iTunes/On Demand March 28, and in theaters May 3 from Magnolia Pictures, the pic follows a beautiful vampire who tries to resist the advances of a human screenwriter, but eventually gives in to their passion.
“Kiss of the Damned is one seriously fun, sexy, stupid and gory good time,” said Dickson. “It reminds me of the 80’s every bit as much as House Of The Devil did, but where that film evoked nostalgia by painstakingly recreating the aesthetics of that decade, Kiss Of The Damned succeeds simply by being one of those movies at heart.”
He continues, “If you’re looking for a stylishly empty, sexy and bloody film – you could do a lot worse.”
