Lust for a Vampire

Lust for a Vampire

About

Voluptuous vampire Carmilla Karnstein (Stensgaard) returns from the dead to seduce the female pupils of an exclusive mid-European finishing school in this formulaic but fun Hammer schlock-horror comic. The Swedish blonde fills her period costume in all the right places, but her performance is as wooden as the stake with which her enamoured English teacher (Johnson) pursues her through the swirling studio fog.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Helen Christie, Barbara Jefford, Yutte Stensgaard, Suzanna Leigh, Ralph Bates, Michael Johnson
  • Director: Jimmy Sangster
  • Writer: Tudor Gates
  • Producer: Michael Style, Harry Fine
  • Photographer: David Muir

In a nutshell

Director Sangster described this second entry in the Carmilla series as 'an embarrassment' and well he might as the lesbian sex scenes are coy and crudely handled, but the girls look good enough to eat and several sequences are eerily effective.
