This was an interesting movie that moved very slowly but had quite a bit of nudity.
The story itself was fairly lame and the violence very tame compared to today's standards.

Interesting and atmospheric and more story than the typical mid 70's erotic horror fare. It's nice to see the great Bessie Love in one of her last screen appearances.

An alright lesbian vampire movie. The blonde is featured just as much, sometimes more, in the movie artwork, but is largely in the background for the whole movie. It is mainly about the brunette with sunken eyes and a slightly strange face. There are a few sexy scenes and a random couple that randomly parks their RV on the lawn of the strange mansion (the great outdoors!). Not much to say. Not nearly as good as similar movies like Daughters of Darkness.

Great Gothic setting helps this story of 2 lesbian Vampires as they have their way with both men and women.

There is just no plot here, nothing but a series of slow, meandering passages to bridge the gap between the vampiric sex and bloodshed.

A total guilty pleasure, beautifully shot lesbian vampire movie from 1974 ha ha.

1974 Director: Jose Ramon Larraz
Score: 4
I can't paint this one with anything but an honest brush. This is a sexploitation throw away dressed up as a vampire movie. For those of you who don't know what that means, here is the basic guide: A very weak plot that exists (barely) only to connect the large amount of sex scenes with gratuitous nudity; Acting that is little more than line recitals (if you're lucky) or really bad ham performances (if you are not lucky) and this movie gives you examples of both; SFX that are at best so-so; and finally, a soundtrack that is either a repetitive montage for the sex scenes, or otherwise uselessly plays in the background and adds nothing. So go for it if you are into soft core action (this one leaning towards lesbian action) but if you want real plot and actually good film elements, you won't find it here.

Sometimes.

An excellent film all thing considered but yes a guilty pleasure to be sure.

Some great atmosphere and camera shots. Acceptable acting, an ok story, decent light lesbianism and nudity, plenty of violence. Definitley a Hammer feel to it, I believe it's a regular Hammer location they used as well.

Italian film made in England.

Visst, det här är en bra och underhållande lesbisk vampyrfilm, helt klart kul att se om på blu-ray, men visst är den väl ändå lite överskattad (särskilt av britter)? Kanske den mest lättillgängliga Josà (C) Larraz-filmen, hans party-rulle - men jag är personligen svagare för hans mörkare och mer stämningsfulla filmer som Symptoms, Scream.... and Die! och Deviations.

Always good to watch a movie from the 70s. Overall this movie was write good as long as you can overlook how much worse acting and effects were thirty years ago. On a side note the one thing I like about older movies, as a man, is that the women are so much more beautiful than the actresses of today. They don't look fake or too skinny. Real women.

The plot may repeat itself Groundhog Day style, but this sexually charged Vampire flick is also oozing with atmosphere. Gets better with age, just like the wine they keep drinking. Pretty solid presentation on Blu-ray as well.

For a vampire lesbian titty movie, it is remarkably well-shot, professionally edited, and adequately acted. If only the ladies' victims were cuter... Still, despite the lack of any surprise, it's quite watchable. The best performance is by the castle, which the English apparently term "houses"; this one is coldly threatening from the exterior, with lumps of cobweb inside.

2: This is the film that has absolutely no pretensions about what it is: a sleazy B or C erotic horror flick. It was hoping for more, but I wasn't exactly disapointed either. The manor house is pitch perfect: the dust, cobwebs, abundant wood, run down atmosphere, luxuriousness, stone masonry, and above all the dark, damp, and fully stocked wine cellar. One of the more interesting aspects of the film is that there is very minimal dialogue and next to no explanation or exposition. In this sense the story doesn't completely make sense if one stops and thinks about the logistics of it, but I didn't let this prevent me from moderately enjoying it. I'd say it was worth seeing just because it was a step off the more well beaten vampire movie path.

"They shared the pleasures of the flesh, and the horrors of the grave!"


In this controversial cult classic (also known as Daughters of Dracula), two beautiful bisexual women roam the English countryside, luring unsuspecting men to their estate for orgies of sex and blood...pretty awesome.

Beautiful to look at and very sexy, it'd just be nice if the story built and concluded in a more interesting way. That said, still a lesbian vampire classic!

Thanks in large part to Spanish b-film god Jess Franco, the 1970s saw the emergence of a new horror sub-genre: the erotic lesbian vampire film. From Franco's notorious classics such as Vampyros Lesbos and Female Vampire to Hammer studio's Karnstein Trilogy, these stories are often inspired by or actually derive their stories from Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla. Vampyres fits snuggly into this sub-genre without being yet another Le Fanu adaptation. Like these other films, Vampyres features relatively large amounts of sex and nudity as well as some fairly brutal murder scenes. Unfortunately, Vampyres is never near as fun as the Hammer films or as bizarre and surreal as Franco. It's compentently done, but becomes boring between the scenes of sex and carnage. The perfomances are lackluster and not enough happens to drive the plot forward. Long scenes of characters walking around do not build suspense or creepiness but isntead just become tedious. Not a horrrible example of this sub-genre but certainly not a classic either.
