Xan Cassavetes' KISS OF THE DAMNED

In case anyone reading here hasn't already heard about Xan Cassavetes' upcoming horror film Kiss of the Damned I wanted to share both the poster and trailer.  The film, which stars Josephine de la Baume, Milo Ventimiglia, Roxane Mesquida, Anna Mouglalis, Michael Rapaport and Riley Keough has been getting quite a bit of acclaim and the cinema of our man Jean Rollin has been cited as one of the film's biggest influences.  Here's the film's gorgeous poster:



And here is the trailer (Fangoria pointed out the Fascination font!):

More information on Kiss of the Damned can be found over at Facebook, Twitter and this official Tumblr page which has images from the film, as well as the films that influenced it (I was happy to see Rollin represented by a few images that I believe I captured originally here).

I am really excited about Kiss of the Damned and I hope the film finds a lot of success.  It is awesome to finad a young filmmaker citing Rollin as an influence especially when it is someone as talented as Xan Cassavetes, whose Z Channel:  A Magnificent Obsession is one of the best documentaries of the past decade.
