Red-Band Trailer for KISS OF THE DAMNED Starring Milo Ventimiglia

     February 19, 2013


A new red-band trailer is now online from writer/director Xan Cassavetes’ Kiss of the Damned.  Starring Milo Ventimiglia as Paolo, a screenwriter who falls for the vampiress Djuna (Josephine de La Baume), Kiss of the Damned takes audiences into vampire society and explores what happens when Djuna’s rogue sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) threatens to upset the balance.  I can’t tell if the new trailer is a grown up version of Twilight or a more serious take on True Blood, but it’s somewhere in between.  Kiss of the Damned will be available on demand March 28th and in theaters on May 3rd.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Here’s the synopsis for Kiss of the Damned:

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…

    looks like vampire porn

    It’s clearly a throwback to the Hammer-esque 70′s vampire films. Not Twilight or True Blood. You call yourself a film journalist & you don’t recognize that?! The poster. The logo. The off track voices & sleazy groove music. Clearly.

      In fairness to the writer of the article, although this project may have been conceived of as a throwback to the Hammer horror sexyfests of the 1970s, the trailer seems aimed more at the modern vampire fan (of Twilight or True Blood) rather than a retro fan. I’m sure the marketing department wants to harness Twilight fandom, which has billions of dollars behind it, rather than the niche horror fan that might hunger for the boobs n’ blood styles of yesteryear. Sure, you grab those fans (like myself) with things like the poster, but that kitsch also can attract modern fans just because retro is “like, totally cool, amirite?” We’re an easily-nabbed bunch; just throw us a bone here and there and we go, “ZOMG! That poster has a color and design scheme like other movies I like that came out 40 years ago!”

      Easy tiger. If you can find one instance of me calling myself a “film journalist,” I’ll overlook your missed opportunity to use an interrobang, but in the meantime, feel free to list a few of those movies so that I, and others, might further educate ourselves!
