One instance where the title says it all, Lesbian Vampire Killers finds screenwriters Stewart Williams and Paul Hupfield and director Phil Claydon plunging headfirst into guilty pleasure territory with an unrestrained, sex-laden horror comedy. The picture stars Mathew Horne and James Corden of the UK series Gavin and Stacey as (respectively) Jimmy and Fletch, two buddies who wind up in a British village with dozens of women caught up in a Sapphic vampire curse - driven by a lust for each other's

Agreeably goofy but surprisingly mild horror-comedy...that's several guffaws short of a laff riot.
The DVD release of Vampire Killers leaves out the 'Lesbians' from the title. Also missing are funny jokes, thrills and engaging characters.
Sure, the whole thing sets gay rights and feminism back 40 years, but Lesbian Vampire Killers doesn't mean to offend. It is, in fact, all rather tongue-in-cheek, very much in the tradition of Sean of the Dead or Lair of the White Worm.
It may not be smart, but under the right circumstances, it sure can be fun.
For others just looking for schlocky kicks, this might have a finger-clicking pace and high-gloss finish, but it's no more than a calling card from director Phil Claydon and the script, written by a pair of comedy-sketch writers, is surprisingly dull.
It's a 15-year-old boy's idea of a great night at the movies -- sexy ladies in lingerie who get their heads lopped off.
The misogyny is too insistent to be ironic, despite the relatively small use of nudity and gore. The vampires, when slain, spurt milky white fluid rather than blood, a peculiarly unpleasant, and telling, detail.
The relentlessly puerile, juvenile humour of Lesbian Vampire Killers makes it something of a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure none the less.
The humour is deadbeat British, which jangles fearsomely with the vampire theme. The tone is brashly entertaining, as the filmmakers borrow shamelessly from 50s horror conventions
Let's get one thing straight. It's not drivel because of its lesbian titillation. It's just drivel. The Beavis and Butthead mentality is just another reason to loathe it, like Page Three of The Sun.
The entire project is a crushingly lazy attempt to create a piece of titillating, exploitative horror-comedy that manages to achieve none of its aims. A mirthless, joyless experience, this is a movie with absolutely nothing going for it.
Badly written, poorly conceived and utterly laugh-free comedy-horror whose idea of wit and invention doesn't extend beyond the nudge nudge, wink wink nature of the title.
An uninspired concoction of overly familiar ingredients, this crude comedy seems aimed at booze-filled lads looking for an undemanding Friday night diversion.
