Paulo wants only one thing: to renounce his humanity and share life with his be loved Djuna and her refined community of vampires, striving, for the most part, to wards political-correctness. Djuna drinks animal blood (with occasional lapses) and the influential Zena pushes for artificial plasma. Trouble crops up when Djuna’s sister Mimi stops by. Cynical and perverse, with no taste for the new life styles, she makes a play for Paolo and gleefully goes on a killing spree, threatening the community with exposure.

Lush, baroque and giallesque, Kiss of theDamned is an atmospheric film about vampires seeking meaning in contemporary life – living peacefully with humans and dealing with eternity.
