Kiss of the Damned



As a Rollin fan, I love the euro sleaze aesthetic this has:

Been looking forward to this despite the mixed reviews I've read as I'm a fan of the films it's taking it's style from. It's also directed by John Cassavetes' daughter.

Now available for stream on Netflix, btw.

Great throwback to Jean Rollin and 70s vampire films like Vampyres or Blood Spattered Bride, so if that kind of thing is up your alley then this is a must see. But what really makes this film is the soundtrack. It's right up there with Beyond the Black Rainbow and Come Out and Play for bringing back the kind of classic film scores that we haven't heard in horror movies for decades. Just found out that the soundtrack will be released soon on vinyl so I up and pre-ordered it. Now if only they would hurry up and do the same with Black Rainbow...

I am pretty sure Death Waltz is releasing Black Rainbow.

If true then that's wonderful news! Death Waltz is an interesting company. I was already considering picking up their gold vinyl edition of The Fog.

Really enjoyed this. Great throw back vampire film. Loved the score, cinematography, atmosphere and tone. On the other hand if I were to harp on the negatives. I would have to say some of the acting and dialogue.

I couldn't get passed the first 10 minutes. I don't think that I could take the main actor for an entire movie. I'll have to give it another shot at some point.

Loved this movie. It's no masterpiece but the style, atmosphere, music, and eroticism make this so much better than horror mainstream films like Insidious and The Conjuring which I just find bland.

This was one of those had-me-then-ya-lost-me movies. I dug it for a while, but about an hour or so my interest started to wane. I ended up stopping it, then resuming it the next day, but that never works. Well, almost never.

I will say one thing though. Xan Cassavettes is way better than those Amer people about making a watchable movie with 70s Euro-horror influences. I'd easily see her next movie. The Amer duo? Not so much.

Funny you should mention the Amer people I just watched their latest movie: The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears. I thought it was very well done and it took a lot of inspiration from Deep Red. No, I'm not saying it's as good as Deep Red but it was inspired by it. I loved Amer and it sounds like you didn't so maybe this won't be to your liking either but it really is good... I swear.

Watched it last night. Loved it. Style over substance but I knew that going in.
