The gruesome and very raunchy red-band trailer landed for director Xan Cassavetes romantic vampire horror, Kiss of the Damned, just a few weeks ago. Now comes the less gruesome green-band trailer.
With less gore and a little less sexy, it gives the new trailer chance to explain a little more of the films plot, and flaunts plenty more of the horrors cool, dark and authentic tone. The soundtrack is used again to maximum effect, and the trailer is very well put together giving off a sense of old fashioned horror flick brought bang up to date with a modern feel to it. Check out the seductive new trailer below.
Magnet Releasing acquired worldwide rights to the film back in September.
Starring Joséphine de La Baume (One Day), Milo Ventimiglia (Rocky Balboa, “Heroes”), Roxane Mesquida (Rubber) and Riley Keough (Jack and Diane, The Runaways), KISS OF THE DAMNED is a DeerJen/Verisimilitude production in association with Bersin Pictures. Produced by Jen Gatien and Alex Orlovsky, executive producers were Adam S. Bersin, Jacob Pechenik, Riaz Tyab and Jon Vinnik.
With her narrative feature debut, Xan Cassavetes (Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession) has crafted a stylish and sensory visual and aural experience that recalls the best of smart and racy European genre films from the 60s and 70s. KISS OF THE DAMNED is the story of Djuna (Joséphine de La Baume), a beautiful vampire who tries to resist the advances of the handsome, human screenwriter Paulo (Milo Ventimiglia) but eventually gives in to temptation. When her troublemaker sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) arrives unexpectedly, Djuna’s love story is threatened, and the whole vampire community becomes endangered.
“Xan Cassavetes has managed to breathe new life into a tired genre in one of the most original, and frankly hottest, horror movies I’ve seen in a very long time,” said Magnet/Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles. “KISS OF THE DAMNED is a smart film with real artistic aspirations that is also incredibly fun to watch.”
