-Blood Sprayer

"Cassavetes reestablishes the vampire as both dangerous and sexy. Everything that is old is new again—a revelation I can really sink my teeth into."

-Paste Magazine

"Offers a bloody good time."

-The Seattle Times

"For a lurid good time, “Kiss of the Damned” is damn hard to beat."

-The Seattle Times

"Cassavetes can film an erotic encounter worthy of the 1970s and the golden age of sex scenes, and that is no small compliment these days."

-NY Post

"This movie will make you love vampires again"


"A celebration of what made old vampire sexploitation movies so thrilling: flashes of flesh, pervasive menace, and dark blood oozing down some fancy lady’s chin."

-The Onion AV Club

"Kiss of the Damned follows those few films that take on an age-old fable and still give us a reason to watch. More then just a flashy skin flick with style, "Kiss of the Damned" lays all its ample wares passionately barren for all to see – its this power and not a simple vampire bite that takes the breath away."


"Deliciously vintage"

"An Intoxicatingly Lusty Homage To Old School Horror."

"Challenging, insightful, and (best of all) entertaining."

"Veritably soaked in the blood of movie lore, rapacious lovers of cult cinema will sink their fangs into this. A sly tribute to old-school horror films."

-Leslie Felperin, Variety

"Turbo-charged eroticism and tongue-in-cheek humor. It will get its fangs into genre fanboys and Tarantino-style cineastes."

-Lee Marshall, Screen
