Apocalypse Kiss – He’s Got A Reputation To Uphold

apocalypse kiss

The question is, do serial killers really want fame? Sure, the consensus on TV crime dramas is that they want recognition and they want to be caught, but do they really want fame?

We’ll soon get some type of answer from the recently acquired Apocalypse Kiss. Acort International has made the acquisition and has plans for world-wide distribution, which will include a North American DVD on Midnight Releasing and a VOD run. Plans also include a showing at the 2013 American Film Market (November 6-13, Santa Monica, California).

Apocalypse Kiss, the self-described “neo sci-fi exploitation” film, looks like a B-movie opera straight out of the ’90s: a city’s seedy underbelly awash in neon lights and painted with a film noir appeal; a pastel painted hooker; and bad hair and worse suits. Yes, there’s a nostalgic element to what’s seen in the trailer, but anyone can see that this will be B-movie paradise in the same vein as the glorious Manborg.

Apocalypse Kiss was written and directed by Christian Jude Grillo (Deer Crossing) and stars D.C. Douglas, Tom Detrik, Carmela Hayslett, Tammy Jean, Lloyd Kaufman, Tom Atkins, and Michael Berryman.

Acort has made the film irresistible viewing, citing Grillo’s style that includes scenes of left-field characters indulging in perverse subculture scenarios. And for the truly nerdy viewers, Apocalypse Kiss features retro-style model making techniques with the latest CGI FX, giving the film cult-ish flavor that is unique from today’s Hollywood films.

Apocalypse Kiss is expected for release on 15 June 2014.

Apocalypse Kiss synopsis:

In this futuristic science fiction thriller, government security agent Jerry Hipple has been unsuccessfully tracking the city’s most infamous criminal — The Red Harvest Killer. When two nomadic lovers, Katia and Gladys enter the city the death count rises and are being credited as Red Harvest killings. Obsessive compulsive Adrian, the actual Red Harvest Killer becomes furious that the sexy serial killing duo are grabbing media attention under his alias. Not only does Adrian attempt to reclaim his rightful reputation but he also decides to cleverly aid his detective counterpart through the case. All the while, killers and victims alike are unaware the world is about to reach an abrupt catastrophic ending.

    You make quite the opinion from a trailer and compare Apocalypse Kiss to a movie that is not even in the same ballpark as this. You are in for quite a shock when you actually view this title. I will be looking forward to you eating your own words. There is also no pastel colored “Hooker” in this film and is quite offensive to the actress and women in general … you have quite the opinion on the opposite sex based on a image you saw. I see how shallow your opinion on women is and how transparent you are as a human being. There is not much depth to the person you are. How does one review a movie and make a claim that one has never actually seen? When you actually view this film, then maybe I will take into consideration your critique on it but from your ignorance it won’t hold much weight. And when you make a film I would like to be the first to review it .. hell I’ll even watch it before I put my opinion in writing.

    • So sorry you read this piece in a negative light. We’re actually big fans of Manborg, Berryman, and Kaufman, so it was with utmost sincerity when I said “this will be B-movie paradise.” Obviously, Manborg and this film deal with different subject matter, I was simply making a comparison in regard to the look of certain scenes in the trailer as well as assuming our appreciation for B-movies. I may have mistaken the actress’ role as a hooker, and certainly didn’t mean to insult her. Personally, I don’t see how you could infer so much about me from the brief statement I made. But from the weight of the personal attacks you have made, I can only assume that you worked on this film in some aspect. Make no mistake, this piece wasn’t a review of the film, simply a news post about its existence and to put it on our readers’ radar. Would you like some ketchup with your words?

        I worked on the film as well and Totally understand you comments having only seen the trailer. I think even the director, so talented for what he accomplished , would agree it is a B-Movie Paradise and could and should become a B-Movie Classic.

    As writer words are important. If the “intent” is the opposite then a better choice of wording would be more appropriate and clear wouldn’t you say? “Make no mistake, this piece wasn’t a review of the film, simply a news post about its existence and to put it on our readers’ radar.” Then that is all it should have been and would have been minus the one paragraph. Ketchup is overrated 🙂

    • I suppose the positive adjectives could be interpreted as sarcastic or snide, but honestly that wasn’t the intent. I guess I partially expect readers to know that we love B-movies at Yell. Sure, we cover the Hollywood blockbusters, but more often than not we’re able to see past and appreciate the faults of a good B-movie. I don’t like ketchup either 🙂

        I am a new reader to Yell. All is good in the world now 🙂 It is however a good example of how the words we choose are viewed differently from different perspectives. I do hope you like the movie once it comes out and if not it is ok too!! And who doesn’t love Lloyd!! B-movies are the best movies!! Amen!!

        • I hope you continue to be a faithful Yell reader. I’ll definitely make an effort to be more clear of my intended meaning going forward. We’ve actually interviewed Kaufman a couple of times and Berryman just once. Both are incredible. I’m looking forward to seeing Apocalypse Kiss.
