“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

“Imbues vampires with a dripping sensuality, bloodthirst and European sensibility and style that's been lacking from recent bloodsucking fare.” – Fangoria

"DAZZLING, WITH A DANGEROUS, SWIRLING EROTICISM. ‘Kiss’ has found a way to make vampirism exhilarating onscreen again.” – Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria

"DEVIOUSLY ENTERTAINING. Smart, stylish, and very sexy.” – Scott Weinberg, Fearnet

“CRAZY. KINKY. COOL. An inviting, fresh take on a familiar storyline.” – William Bibbiani, Crave

"TRULY EXCITING. AS BEAUTIFUL A THRILLER AS WE’VE SEEN IN QUITE SOME TIME. It’s truly great to know the erotic thriller is still not only alive and still as vital as ever. - Joshua Brunsting, Criterioncast
