Ahh...young love. Even when two kids are completely wrong for each other, they can find a way to fall head over heels and cause so much pain. Of course, this is amplified a thousandfold when you involve vampires. Now, I know what you're thinking. No, I'm not about to talk about that other vampire romance franchise with the sparkles. I'm talking about Kiss of the Damned, the new film written and directed by Xan Cassevetes. Here's the official synopsis from Magnet Releasing:
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...
I don't think that this description does the film justice. Fortunately, the folks at Magnet recently released a red band trailer for the film as well as an official poster. You can check them both out below.
The trailer gives Kiss of the Damned a very '70s vibe but with a more modern look if that makes any sense. I'm not crazy about Milo Ventimiglia, even in this footage as he seems very wooden. I also had to watch this twice to understand what Josephine de La Baume and Roxane Mesquida were saying. Maybe I'm just playing the part of the dumb American here, but it was tough for me to pick up on everything. Fortunately, I don't have to listen to them to see the great visuals that Cassevetes has delivered here. This looks like a very bloody love story. It's violent and sexy, like an amped up version of True Blood.
Kiss of the Damned will be available on iTunes and On Demand on March 28th, 2013 and in theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
