Vampyros Lesbos

Vampyros Lesbos

Synopsis

Silly, sinister Spanish/German psychedelic lesbian soft-core vampire horror with superb soundtrack

About

Suck it to me baby. Arty soft-core Euroschlock from sex-horror genre guru Franco.

Estate agent Linda Westinghouse (Strömberg) goes a-calling on Countess Nadine Carody (Miranda) and gets a detailed tour of the bedroom. The former wife of Dracula, Carody's now suspended in a limbo of un-ageing blood-lust, feasting on the Sapphic sustenance of Saint Tropez's fair damsels. The eternal dilemma of her situation is that she can never fall in love.

Settle down with the Countess for a spot of lesbian slap 'n' tickle and you'll be dead before you can say 'Ooh, yes, bite me'.

Of course, you never come to Franco's films (over 150 of them) for the plots, but his dreamy, unsettling direction does develop the central tragedy of Carody's love for Westinghouse. Only very, very slowly.
