Not only does Adrian attempt to reclaim his rightful reputation but he also decides to cleverly aid his detective counterpart through the case.

A jealous serial killer stalks in a film-nourish future in this beautifully-visualized, well-cast and well-acted indie sci-fi from Potent Media and the gang. The comparisons to "Blade Runner" are inevitable, but "Apocalypse Kiss" offers a new cynicism about the future that is at times humorous (e.g., the commercials) and often brutal (e.g., the murders, the politics). It was great to see Tom Atkins again in a role similar to the one he played in "Night of the Creeps", with an appearance by Michael Berryman of "The Hills have Eyes" and an effective, somber Lloyd Kaufman in a serious role. Also, Carmela Hayslett is an effectively brooding murderess, Tom Detrik is a believable gumshoe detective and DC Douglas is, well, impossible to take your eyes off of. I don't want to give away the story, but suffice it to say when the opposing forces meet at the end there is humor, tension and a satisfying pay-off that is cleverly staged and shot. This movie LOOKS like a well-budgeted Hollywood product, far better than many of the movies you see on the SyFy Channel. It's an originally plotted indie from the makers of "Deer Crossing" and "Booley". "Apocalypse Kiss" is definitely their most polished and entertaining movie to date.
