Sheridan Le Fanu's classic 1872 novella Carmilla has served as the basis for numerous vampire flicks, although it's probably safe to state that this blood-and-boob-filled adaptation from Hammer Films boasts the largest fan base.

What's remarkable about 'The Vampire Lovers' is not the bite wounds that mark the bare female breasts but the intense romantic yearning and fear of separation and loneliness that mark the character of Carmilla (Ingrid Pitt).

Fairly flat dialog doesn't provide much of the unconscious humor that usually gives a lift to this type of entertainment.

Although it's over-long and has some genuinely silly moments and dialogue, this was a key film from Hammer.

Not the best of the Karnstein trilogy, but gory and sexy. What else do you need.

This eroticized vampire tale resulted from the last significant surge of creative energy at Britian's Hammer Films, which thereafter descended into abject self-parody.
