Movie Info

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 one dimensional narrative struggles to hit home.

The DVD release of Vampire Killers leaves out the 'Lesbians' from the title. Also missing are funny jokes, thrills and engaging characters.

the only thing that made it watchable was its mercifully short length

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.

This British comedy is all Norman and no Wisdom or all Wise and no Morecamble. I have seen Venetian blinds that are funnier.

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.

Simply isn't smart or funny enough be a cult classic.

An uninspired concoction of overly familiar ingredients, this crude comedy seems aimed at booze-filled lads looking for an undemanding Friday night diversion.

Films rarely come as lowest common denominator as this reductive Hammer parody, where wit is replaced with endless knob jokes, and where there are far more mammaries than memories on offer.

It's not as gleefully cheesy as i'd hoped but neither is it as bad as it could have been. I laughed more than I thought I would. But it's extremely daring title is basically the whole tone of the film because it unfolds as something offensive as opposed to a horror comedy with some raunchy humour thrown in for good measure. Shaun Of The Dead it is not. It has weaker jokes and less wit, offered with a dull and sometimes gut crushingly badly written script. I'll probably get plenty of thumbs down for this however I do believe James Corden has some genuine comedic talent. Him doing the fat guy comedy shtick was the best thing about this film, but it was completely unoriginal and done better in Shaun Of The Dead. I liked it to the extent of a few good jokes and visually breathtaking set pieces, otherwhise in fairness it's not that much good at all. But I did laugh at the gay werewolf gag which was unnecessarily stretched, but honestly quite hilarious. Although it's not saying much, I probably liked it a lot more than most people who saw it. But narratively, it's a failure, and when it comes to the lesbians, even if your okay with the offensiveness that comes with it, you dont get much action.

An occasionally funny horror comedy from the guys in Gavin & Stacey. Not that gory, sexy and most of the time that funny. Has a few good moments but had potential to be a lot better. A disappointment.

This is one spectacularly hilarious comedy that will have you fall out of your seat laughing. A fantastic crowd-pleaser that is just as fun and as satisfying as Shaun Of The Dead. A smart, fast-paced and wickedly entertaining adventure. A blisteringly enjoyable buddy movie and outrageous horror-comedy. One of the the most original, goofy and hysterical hybrid comedies in years. There is no possible way you cant enjoy this movie, it's just that much fun.
