A humid and elegant reworking of the vampire myth as an explicit challenge to the limits of the "liberated" couple

Audience Reviews for The Velvet Vampire

The story is familiar, a couple find themselves guests at the home of a vampire, but this is a particularly 70s take on it, and a somewhat sexual one too. I liked that, but it could have been more sexual and more about vampires than it was. Overall, it's pretty good, but it could have been a lot better.

This movie has about 5 different names, Velvet Vampire, Cemetery Girls, The Devil Is a Woman, The Waking Hour , and Through the Looking Glass , but none of the names really fit the movie. Its by far anything but a vampire movie. Its about a young couple Lee and Susan, they meet an older women named Diane and agree to spend a few days at her place. Well there is more to Diane then meets the eye. At first tries to start an affair with both people; and eventually reveals herself as a vampire. But there is almost zero vampire action. There is a little topless action by both girls, I would have to pick Susan Myself. Only thing scary about this movie is that it last 80 minutes. There ought to be a law. 1 1/2 stars
