Critic Reviews for Vampyros Lesbos (Lesbian Vampires: The Heiress of Dracula)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • Extremely prolific and generally untalented, Jess Franco is the Spanish Ed Wood, albeit without Wood's gift for humorously inane dialogue.

  • Franco brings it across with a bright yet minimalist color scheme, scene-setting shots of Istanbul's spires and glimmering seas, and more zooms than a Formula One car on race day.

  • Try to locate a narrative, and the whole thing dissolves; better to take the lead of Heidrum Kussin's buxom, straitjacketed Reinfeld, who emerges from the reverie bewildered and aroused.

    Nov 5, 2008 | Full Review…
  • Jess Franco's 1970 erotic horror has become a cult landmark in Eurotrash entertainment.

  • Never rising above an exploitation film.

    Feb 15, 2007 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • As filtered through the drug-bombed haze of Jesus Franco, this mixture of vampires and sun-drenched Riviera setting is nonsense from the get-go, but if you like a little soft gore with your soft core, this is the movie for you.

Audience Reviews for Vampyros Lesbos (Lesbian Vampires: The Heiress of Dracula)

A enjoyable and sensual watching with visible fake blood, some exaggerated interpretation and all the kitsch a B movie type can offer. Different from what you would expect of any vampyre movie, in Vampyros Lesbos most scenes are in a sunny and paradisiac outside and the plot is insteresting, playing with "reality" and imagination. *Soledad Miranda was terrific beautiful.

This film exploring erotic obsession is among the more famous and respected of prolific Spanish director Jesus Franco, who is also known for his "bad taste." Falling somewhere between arthouse and grindhouse, it's too trashy for some while too personal or difficult for others If you are a Franco fan, you know this one already. The film has a huge cult following and deservedly so. A good example of 1970s-era Euro-Horrotica. If you have been thinking of seeing your first Franco film, this is a good choice. Photobucket

This a unique movie for 3 simple reasons: -Soledad Miranda is so damn hot she could melt the poles in minutes (a shame she passed away so early) -Jess Franco always creative camera work -One of the most, if not the most, psychodelic soundtrack mankind has recorded Franco was a soft-core director, no questioning there, but with a sharp eye for exotic visuals. If you want some euro-trash-camp that is both delirious and fun to watch don't hesitate to get this one.

A mildy titillating, but ultimately lame vampire flick from Jess Franco. The base story is similar to the original Stoker novel. A lady lawyer, Linda Westinghouse, goes to a mysterious woman's island home to probate a will for her. What she doesn't know is that the mystery woman is actually a vampire -- the implication is that she was turned by, and was the mistress of, Count Dracula. But this lady likes to walk on the wild side, and prefers her own kind -- that is, she likes women over men, hates men as a matter of fact. Features some softcore "girl-on-girl" action, a soundtrack that some find groovy but irritated me, and a snoozefest of an onstage striptease number. Very slow and dull in places, and confusing in others, in that two of the main female characters are almost identical. Some of the worst blood effects I've seen. Either the blood looks like raspberry Kool-Aid or red cake frosting. Set in Istanbul, in German with English subtitles.
