365 Days- Day 69

movie: Kiss of the Damned
starring: Milo Ventimiglia, Josephine de La Baume
genre: Drama
year: 2012
format: DVD

plot: A vampire couple have their world turned upside down, when the woman's sister comes to stay with them. The couple do not feed on humans and follow the laws of the local vampire community, the sister on the other hands rebels by not just feeding on humans but also by not burying them. Within a week, she's destroyed the relationship of the couple, and blackmailed one of the leaders in their community.

I know, I am breaking away from the franchises because I got my hands on a copy of this film and couldn't wait.
It had a tone to it that reminded me of both the movie the Hunger and of a few vampire films from the 1970's.  The first ten minutes is so rapid fire that it's almost difficult to keep up with.
The look of it is dark and gritty, which vampire films should be.
I have to admit, the accents that all the actors have made it difficult at times to catch all the dialog.

what do i think i learned from this film? Some relationships just can not be repaired.
This film seemed to be about manipulation more then anything else, and the lack of free will.  Right at the beginning of the movie, the lead female bites her boyfriend and pretty much takes away any chance he has to have a choice from then on.
