The Cinematheque at Uptown
United States | 2012 | Xan Cassavetes
This “appealingly affectionate homage to ‘70s baroque horror films” (Time Out New York) was directed by John Cassavetes’ daughter. It’s a sexy, full-bodied vampire picture about a smitten screenwriter who willingly submits to a strawberry blonde bloodsucker, until her even more vampish and voracious sister (Roxane Mesquida) disrupts the couple’s bloody bliss. “Saucily thumbing its nose at the insipid teen love of the Twilight franchise, Kiss reimagines its bloodsuckers as horny, supercilious Eurotrash with addiction issues…Rapacious lovers of cult cinema will sink their fangs into this.” –Variety.
