Kiss of the Damned: First Look - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, February 25, 2013

This Undead Monday, we take a look at Kiss of the Damned with the red-band trailer of the erotic supernatural horror film directed by writer-director Xan Cassavetes. 

Set to be released on iTunes/On Demand later this month on March 28 and  in selected theaters on May 3, Kiss of the Dead will be the first feature film directed by writer-director Xan Cassavetes, AKA Alexandra Cassavetes, the daughter of Greek actor-director John Cassavetes and actress Gena Rowlands. While far from being the first of the Cassavetes siblings to take on the director helm (brother Nick is the director of The Notebook while sister Zoe is famous for her feature film, Broken English), Xan made her career with her critically acclaimed documentary, Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession, chronicling the rise and fall of avant garde pay cable TV station, Z Channel. 

In Kiss of the Dead, the director takes one hell of a depart from her previous work to tell the tale of a high society of vampires with a quirky mix of the erotic and horror. You can at least be assured that this isn't some cheap knock-off of Twilight or True Blood. Hit the jump to have your first sneak peek at the film.

Here’s the synopsis for the film: 

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…

Written and directed by Xan Cassavetes and starring Milo Ventimiglia, Roxane Mesquida, Josephine de la Baume, Anna Mouglalis, Michael Rapaport and Riley Keough, Kiss of the Damned is set to be available on iTunes/On Demand March 28, and in theaters on May 3, 2013.
