Kiss Of The Damned readily recalls the likes of Jean Rollin and Harry Kümel, imbuing vampires with a dripping sensuality, bloodthirst and European sensibility and style that's been lacking from recent bloodsucking fare.

When her troublemaker sister Mimi (Mesquida) unexpectedly comes to visit, Djuna’s love story is threatened, and the whole vampire community becomes endangered...
