This fall, you may have a “death wish” for Death Kiss. An intentional throwback to the gritty vigilante films of the 70s and 80s, the film is about…well guess. A rough, merciless vigilante enters a crime-filled neighborhood, pistols armed….it’s really all you need to know.
“Rene’s movie is very cool and stylish. It feels like a throwback to the Cannon films of the ’80s,” says Jeff Miller, producer on Death Kiss. “After an enthusiastic response at Texas Frightmare Weekend in May, we’re excited to show the film to the general public.”
Miller is producing the film through his Millman Productions company. Death Kiss was written and directed by Rene Perez (Playing With Dolls, Havoc). Gary Jones served as executive produce through his company Mosquito Entertainment, and Zach Carter served as Supervising Producer.
Death Kiss stars Robert Kovacs as the certal vigilante, Daniel Baldwin (John Carpenter’s Vampires), Richard Tyson (Kindergarten Cop. Two Moon Junction), Eva Hamilton (horror fest fave RUIN ME), Stormi Maya, Leia Perez, Reese Austyn, and Sam Story.
You can catch Death Kiss on VOD platforms October 2, but you may want to wait for the DVD — it will have a director’s commentary among other bonuses. That version comes out December 4.
