Jess Franco co-writes and directs this German horror. When Linda Westinghouse (Ewa Stroemberg) visits an exotic nightclub, she finds herself entranced by the sight of a beautiful young woman performing an erotic dance with an animated mannequin. Over the following days, she becomes increasingly troubled by the powerful pull she felt towards this young woman, and jumps at the chance to take a business trip to the island of Countess Nadine Carody (Soledad Miranda), hoping that it will keep her mind occupied. But as chance would have it, the Countess and the dancer are one and the same woman, and she has a whole store of vampiric delights ready and waiting for the innocent Linda...
Beyond being Jess Franco's masterpiece, Vampyros Lesbos is a highpoint of the lesbian vampire film genre. Like Daughters of Darkness, The Vampire Lovers, and the New Wave vampire film, The Hunger, Vampyros features an extremely hot vampire, Countess Nadina Carody (Soledad Miranda), who dances at strip clubs in her spare time. In a brutally sexy opening scene, Miranda hypnotically seduces audience member Linda Westinghouse (Ewa Strömberg), calling her to her castle in Anatolia, on business from which Westinghouse never returns. Linda's boyfriend, Omar (Andrés Monales), eventually finds Linda institutionalized, cared for by one Dr. Seward. The characters in Vampyros Lesbos are foils for the cast of Bram Stoker's Dracula, in radical opposition to the traditional, clichéd horror film stereotypes. Psychedelic moments, like when Linda is seduced by the Queen of the Night, recall the grainy, erotic scenes of Jean Rollin's Requiem Pour Un Vampire, and Le Frisson Des Vampires. To dwell on the convoluted plot is clearly missing the point. With arguably the best horror movie soundtrack every released, Vampyros Lesbos revels in the sultry aspects of vampirism, resulting in long, romantic sequences of nude women playing in ocean waves, lying on chaise lounges, and making out in bed. Franco's other films, like She Killed in Ecstasy and Venus in Furs, serve as sequels, so see this first. In fact, see this film period. --Trinie Dalton

Franco makes a cameo appearance, proving again that he can't act his way out of a paper bag, a harsher man than me might say that he's still not the worst actor in the film and while the film doesn't have a tangible enough storyline for a legitimate film, it doesn't have enough nudity to be a sleaze-fest.
Franco's made far worse in this genre (Dracula's Daughter) but he's also made far better (Female Vampire).
R.I.P Soledad Miranda
If you're looking for an exciting movie about lesbian vampires, this is not it. The most "exciting" bit is probably when she randomly molests a headless dressform?

I first saw this 20+ years ago and remember not particularly liking it then.
It has a pretty good soundtrack ...Read more
