Movie Review by Cenobite
August 12th, 2008

Best Film of 1996

Brace yourself. If you are squeamish or tend to faint at the sound of the word necrophilia, you will probably not care to read the reviews let alone rent the videotape. Let me tell you upfront that you'd be making a huge mistake & missing out on a truly remarkable film which never really has gotten it's dues.

Molly Parker gives a full-bodied (no pun intended) performance as a young woman by the name of Sandra obsessed with deceased young men. it's as if our lead character Sandra can feel their dreams, their sadness, & is able to somehow make a connection with these expired young bodies as she later tells us. for some strange reason, this provides comfort & consolation i suppose for it eases her mind that she too will one day cross over as well.

To FURTHER complicate matters, Sandra meets a young college student who is as intrigued by her fascination with death as he is romantically attached to her. Needless to say, their relationship takes an awful turn as the film progresses. Although quite sad & a bit eccentric, Kissed reminds of us how we fail to see while we are still in the world of the living. It seems as if we only notice certain things about ourselves or others after they have crossed over or left their earthly home. Many could argue or debate that we shouldn't be reminded through a controversial film such as this but then how could appreciate life anymore without it? Watch kissed with an open mind & brace yourself once again as you hear the haunting music of Sarah McLachlan while the credits pass before our eyes.
