Remembered primarily as one of the Hammer vampire films that Christopher Lee did not appear in (the other being The Brides of Dracula from 1960), Kiss of the Vampire should nevertheless satisfy fans of gothic horror. The film is drenched in atmosphere, good acting, and contains some imaginatively staged set pieces including the bat attack finale. When originally aired on American television, under the title Kiss of Evil, the film was heavily re-edited. But this disc contains the British version which is the better of the two. The picture has been letterboxed at 1.66:1 and is available with an English mono soundtrack. The picture is fairly clean, looking sharp and colorful throughout. The English mono soundtrack is virtually noise free and is likewise acceptable. Unfortunately, though, the disc does not contain the original theatrical trailer or any production information of any kind. Luckily, the film alone definitely makes this disc a must-own for your horror film collection.
