We gave it a C

Serial-killer movies have now spawned their own clichés. When the heroine, Ashley Judd, gets dragged to an underground dungeon, the setting is as corny as any fogbound horror-movie trope from the ’30s, and so is the homicidal phantom’s ”creepy” operatic spiel about perfect love. Kiss the Girls is a fake psychological thriller that turns into a garishly schlocky and implausible bogeyman hunt. C
