A lesbian vampire couple abduct victims in this eerie European erotic horror classic. Marianne Morris and Anulka Dziubinska play Fran and Miriam, two of the most devastatingly gorgeous femme fatales in horror history. Though the lesbian vampire subgenre had already been well established by 1974, VAMPYRES’ unprecedented levels of graphic sex and violence infuriated British censors and caused a notoriety that – along with the leads’ performances and THE WICKER MAN DP Harry Waxman’s spooky cinematography – regularly land it on the list of the greatest vampire films of all time.

terrible kissing, immaculate aesthetic
Great movie, sexy vampire gals luring men back to their mansion to feast on their blood! Fast and greasy 70’s exploitation classic, great stuff!
I want to have my arm cut in that house...... This movie is amazing.
So much aggressively awkward tongue kissing in this movie. A unique overall plot as far as vampire movies go though. Because they didn't go with the whole pointy fangs trope, I wondered throughout the film if they were actually supernatural vampires, or just ladies who liked to drink blood. Then a throwaway line at the end of the movie seemed to suggest they were something else entirely, so this wasn't even technically a vampire movie, I guess? But some of the kills were handled pretty brutally with plenty of blood to go around, so that plus the copious nudity from three beautiful women made up for the sloppy storyline. Worth checking out for some eye candy, but I doubt many vampire fans will be stoked about this one.
When I watch a vampire movie, I expect to see fangs! How come these chicks don’t have fangs and have to use a gauntlet knife to stab their victims for blood? That to me was like a lame retro Twilight movie
