Jenny Agutter elevates this above the ordinary
7 September 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

'Kiss Me And Die' is worth watching for the performance of Jenny Agutter alone. She plays a wonderful part - of Dominie Lanceford - a beautiful young lady who resides with her zealously protective guardian Jonathan (Anton Diffring does a good job here).

Enter Robert Stone: his mission - to locate his missing brother Jim. Stone is an American who immediately stands out in the village - full of 'Straw Dogs'esquire locals. Old Fred the ratcatcher is a joy to watch.

The trail leads to Dominie but she insists that Jim left her of his own free will. Stone is persistent however and during the course of his investigation gradually finds himself becoming more and more attracted to her. The upshot of this affair is that Stone gets his marching orders. Apparently all men who are smitten must go or be pushed. He is reluctant to do so and to complicate matters decides to attend a 'Masque of the Red Death' type of party in the Lanceford residence - which proves to be particularly haunting and unforgettable...
