Retro We Watch: The Vampire Lovers (1970)

Retro We Watch: The Vampire Lovers (1970)

The Vampire Lovers movie review from the Salty Nerds has them stunned that a horror exploitation film from the 1970s could be so much fun.  

Based on a novella that pre-dates Dracula, The Vampire Lovers is the first instance of lesbian vampires on screen (or in literature).  Sired by a mysterious vampire, Marcilla goes from one Noble's house to another, systematically seducing their young daughters while feeding off them and eventually killing them.  At least until she gets to the Morton household, where the butler Renton catches onto her scheme and moves to protect the young mistress long enough for Peter Cushing's General von Spielsdorf to lead his crew of vampire hunters to take Marcilla and her LGBTQ tendencies out!
