Magnolia Pictures Acquires Kiss of the Damned

The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today they have acquired world rights to writer/director Xan Cassavetes’ KISS OF THE DAMNED, an erotic vampire film that will make its world premiere as the closing night film of International Critics’ Week at the Venice Film Festival this Friday September 7th.

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
