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.Hell they even shack up at his home while they munch on his food and suck up his air. I have to admit that i enjoyed the goth chick much better when she wasn't talking. She was so annoying but i supposes that just shows she did her job well of being annoying huh?
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. One that will leave you awestruck
This movie plays out like a well-budgeted Hollywood product, far better than many of the movies you see on the SyFy Channel. Highly reminisce of JOHNNY NMENONIC with its futuristic rules and even has a gatekeeper of sorts who resembles a Danny Devito meets the PENGUIN type of fellow and even has a nice little offering by the "thrill me man" himself, Tom Atkins, a very similar role to the one he played in "Night of the Creeps", with an appearance by Michael Berryman of "The Hills have Eyes" and an effective, somber Lloyd Kaufman in a serious role.
Even the commercials were cool especially the one for ONE CREDIT SAMURAI. It reminded me a lot of the fun film SLASHERS where their over the top Asian stereotypes were taken to the next level of absurdness and actually works and benefits the film.Those involved in this production all the way down to the actors should be very proud of this little gem. They all did a great job. And massive kudos go to the director and cinematographer for seemingly being on the same page.....This is a damn fun film to watch. All in all APOCALYPSE KISS works and makes for a very entertaining film.
