The sensual, exhilarating and dangerous is highlighted in the red band trailer for Xan Cassavetes’ Eurohorror vampire throwback.
A retro groove, the FASCINATION font and plenty of orgasmic, bloody faces in throes of passion and passionate murder populate the latest tease for KISS OF THE DAMNED (the first being this gorgeous poster). The film, anticipating a SXSW U.S. premiere as well as a late March debut on VOD, is as much an often lovely recalling of the likes of Jean Rollin as it is a film about the difficulty of family and intense new love. It’s a swooner for adults and fans of lush, macabre cinema.
KISS OF THE DAMNED stars Josephine de la Baume and RUBBER’s Roxanne Mesquida, and sees beautiful vampire Djuna (Baume) try to resist the advances of the handsome, human screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia), but eventually gives in to their passion. When her troublemaker sister Mimi (Mesquida) unexpectedly comes to visit, Djuna’s love story is threatened, and the whole vampire community becomes endangered…
KISS OF THE DAMNED is on VOD March 28, 2013 and in select theaters May 3. See a clip from the film below the trailer, and expect much more from Fango soon! [h/t to JoBlo for the embed]
