Pass the popcorn. Here are five movies you've gotta see this month.
Kiss of the Damned @ Harkins Scottsdale 101 There are a few reasons Kiss of the Damned is on our must-see list. It's directed by Xan Cassavetes, daughter of John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands. Milo Ventimiglia (a.k.a. Rory Gilmore's soulmate) is in it, as is model/royal pain in Blair Waldorf's ass Roxane Mesquida. In case none of that matters to you, here are three words: sexy, vampire, thriller. Sold? Thought so.
