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.

I've watched a couple of these old-school vampire movies. They are very entertaining, and very sexy. An excellent waste of my time.
Fun and sexy flik. Worth the watch.
Surprisingly good! The opening suggested a soft core fantasia, but the rest was impressive, particularly the pacing and the atmosphere.
the object of horror here is plain and simple female sexuality. Fran and Miriam are as ferocious as they are stunning. coupled with an immersive and claustrophobic gothic atmosphere, it amounts to a singular vampire film. low key, slow burning and unforgettable.
