Le Rouge aux Levres is a stylish, fascinating, very erotic vampire film based on Sheridan le Fanu's Camilla, the classic tale of a lesbian vampire. A young married couple, Stefan (John Karlen) and Valerie (Daniele Ouimet), honeymoon at a deserted oceanside resort where they meet Countess Elisabeth Bathory (Delphine Seyrig) and her companion Ilona (Andrea Rau). Valerie has discovered that Stefan is a brutal sexual sadist and is drawn to the Countess because of her warmth and sensuality. Ilona

Delphine Seyrig's silver lame presence and Harry Kumel's evocative direction make this an above-par vampire tale.
Not a single death is drawn out for effect -- indeed, most aren't even on purpose.
The lifeblood of marriage was all but drained by the time Slovakia's sullen vampires reached it in the early '70s.
a purposefully difficult-to-classify hybrid of European art-film austerity and borderline campy erotic-horror excess
Mystifyingly overrated horror flick that moves like fire hydrant in winter
