Vampiress Review: "Kiss of the Vampires (2009)"

The Gist: The leader of a cult of vampires falls in love with a woman and needs her father to cure him of his immortality so they can be together. 

Female Vampire Factor: There are four female vampires in the cult.  They aren't really important to the plot as they are basically just background characters who fang out and hiss in various group biting scenes.

Final Opinion:  Also known as "Immortally Yours" this film has no relation to the 1963 British vampire film of the same name.  The only real issue I have with the film is that it is way longer than it needs to be and the ridiculously corny ending.   Other than that it's a decent indy film. 

The movie itself is more a mobster film than any other genre.  While the main story is your stereotypical "vampire falls in love with a mortal woman and is willing to give up his immortality for her" deal, intertwined is a plot where the Illuminati (who come off more as mafia style gangsters than a secret society) after discovering that vampirism is a real thing plot to become vampires themselves by forcing the main vampire Alex into making them immortal. 

While there are attractive female vampires in the film they don't get enough screen time to carry the movie as a reason to watch it and are killed off well before the final act of the movie.  I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.
