Somewhen, the late 21st century: The end is nigh, no I mean really nigh, the sun has started to transform into a supernova, a small planet has left its orbit and gone on a collision course with earth, and earth itself has turned into a shithole, where gouvernments are taken over by large cooperations who flood the country with their products and are given 100% access to all data/control over the population just like that.

But in the poorer districts of this totalitarian world, there are plenty of loopholes for less law-abiding citizens to slip through and get their kicks, people like Kat (Carmela Hayslett) and Gladys (Tammy Jean), who murder horny rich guys by luring them into sex traps, where Gladys is the bait who jumps out of her clothes quickly enough to attract any man's attention, while Kat plays the mute and introvert sidekick who actually does the killings.

But they're small fish compared to the Red Harvest Killer Adrian (D.C. Douglas), who has made killing into an artform (or so he thinks), and who's always very peculiar in deleting any clues. He's not fond of the work of Kat and Gladys at all, thinks they are "savages", and feels gravely insulted that at least some of their work is credited to him ...

Detective Hipple (Tom Detrik) is on the Red Harvest Killer's trail for years, ever since he has killed his wife (Bonnie Loev), something that has driven Hipple to alcoholism, plus he still sees the (real or imagined) spirit of his wife quite regularly, talks to her - and doesn't always like what she had to say ...

Eventually, these three parties are bound to meet, and with the end of the world looming, the outcome just cannot be a happy one whichever way you put it ...

Genre fave Michael Berryman plays the head of world-controling Horn Enterprises, while Lloyd Kaufman, in an uncharacteristically touching performance, plays the president of the USA.

 

Apocalypse Kiss is a quite unusual mix of serial killer, apocalypse, anti-utopia, sci fi and noir motives all thrown together and infused with quite a bit of biting satire - and the film works just beautifully, because it's very well written and makes a good job of tieing the three very diverse narrative threads together, it manages to create an end-of-world atmosphere on a rather low budget, and features some colourful characters played by a very competent cast.

It's great (and rather intelligent) genre fun, really!
