Ridiculously Bad Fun in 'Lesbian Vampire Killers'

A film with the title Lesbian Vampire Killers is bound to be outrageously terrible. It also happens to be pretty damned funny - and kind of hot. A town is cursed by the evil lesbian vampire queen Carmilla (Silvia Colloca). When the sweet, innocent girls of the town are doomed to be sexy, rabid vampires who like to snack on other ladies. The lesbian vamps' terrible burden of hotness can only be cured by a descendent of Camilla.

If you think a film with the title Lesbian Vampire Killers is bound to be outrageously terrible, you'd be right. It also happens to be pretty damned funny - and kind of hot.

Lesbians and vampires are a titillating combination that has been stirring up lustful thoughts for centuries. Literally. Just take Le Fanu's 1872 short story "Carmilla" - which the 2009 film Lesbian Vampire Killers is loosely tied to.

Not to say director Phil Claydon has created anything as literary as Carmilla with the super-cheesy and over the top Lesbian Vampire Killers. What he has wrought, however, is a film that is thoroughly entertaining in its awfulness. Plus, how can you resist a storyline revolving around a town full of beautiful women who all turn into lesbian vampires at 18?

Yes, it seems that some backwards town was cursed way back when by the evil lesbian vampire queen Carmilla (Silvia Colloca). When the sweet, innocent girls of the town reach adulthood, they are doomed to become sexy, rabid vampires who like to snack on other ladies. Only a descendent of Carmilla can cure the poor lesbian vampires of their terrible burden of hotness. Enter Jimmy (Matthew Horne), the prodigal descendent, who arrives willy-nilly in town to save the day. After a whole lot of eye-candy moments on screen, of course.

An exploitation film at its heart - if a bit high on the silliness factor, Lesbian Vampire Killers manages to rather carefully tread the line between amusing and offensive in its stereotyping of lesbian vampirism in action. Just remember when you're watching - this film is meant to be a joke.

Check out the trailer below and if it tweaks your fancy, the DVD is set for release on August 3rd.
