With her narrative feature debut, writer/director Xan Cassavetes (Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession) has crafted a stylish, bloody and erotic supernatural tale. KISS OF THE DAMNED is the story of Djuna (Joséphine de La Baume - One Day, Princess of Montpensier), a beautiful vampire who tries to resist the advances of the handsome, human screenwriter Paulo (Milo Ventimiglia - TV’s Gilmore Girls, The Divide), but eventually gives in to temptation. When her troublemaker sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida - Fat Girl, TV’s Gossip Girl)) arrives unexpectedly, Djuna’s love story is threatened and the whole vampire community becomes endangered. Recalling the best and smartest of racy European genre films from the 1960s and 1970s, KISS OF THE DAMNED is the story of vampires trying to find the meaning in everlasting life, and thrillingly contrasts the loveliness and brutality of classic vampire tales. Also starring Anna Mouglalis (Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky), and Michael Rapaport (Mighty Aphrodite, TV’s Boston Public and Friends). Filmmaker Xan Cassavetes is the daughter of famed director John Cassavetes and legendary actress Gena Rowlands.
