The latest feature film from writer/director Xan Cassavetes (daughter of cinema legend John Cassavetes), whose documentary Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession won acclaim among cult TV fans, Kiss of the Damned is the erotically-charged tale of the relationship between screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia of Heroes and Pathology) and rogue vampire Djuna (Joséphine de La Baume), which leads to Paolo's transformation into one of the undead and puts them both in jeopardy from Djuna's sinister sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida, Sheitan), who can't control her own predatory impulses.     If the new red-band trailer from Magnet is any indication, it looks like the film stirs up gothic and modern vampire conventions in a stylish, highly sensual (and kinda kinky) melting pot, with lots of steamy sex and impressive bloodletting... and this gorgeous advance poster, which recalls the sexy bloodsuckers of Jean Rollin, has me completely hooked.     Kiss of the Damned is slated »
