Apocalypse Kiss (2014)

Last night, everyone went to bed and left me to hang out all alone. After some debate, I decided to venture into low budget independent mode with the 2014 Sci-Fi entry Apocalypse Kiss.

Plot/ government security agent Jerry Hipple has been unsuccessfully tracking the city's most infamous criminal The Red Harvest Killer. When two nomadic lovers enter the city, the death-count rises and the killers and victims alike are unaware the world is about to reach an abrupt catastrophic ending.

I am usually a sucker for any film from Midnight Releasing or Brain Damage Film, but somehow I missed this one. Honestly, I am not sure how that happened, as this one had so many visible elements on the box alone that drew me in. More importantly, this one did not disappoint. The story was layered and interesting; the cast was solid and fit well within their roles, the soundtrack fits, and the quality of the special effects truly appeared grander than the budget. Yes, there are some flaws with the pacing and there are some lighting issues, but those are only minor flaws that do nothing to the overall feel of the movie. In the end, this was one of the more entertaining low budget films I have seen in some time. Not for everyone, but if you love Sci-Fi in the vein of Blade Runner, give it a shot!
