Chasing Lesbian Vampires

If you want to find Lesbian Vampires your Tube is the place to be LOL.

Of course you undead aficionados out there will know that lesbianism in vampire stories has been around since the 19th century. Take a look in the font of all knowledge that is Wikipedia if you don’t believe me, under lesbian vampires.

Is it that from Carmilla onward we’ve all been entranced with the idea that maybe lesbianism amongst the undead is more acceptable than that amongst the living? Whatever the reason many vampire stories, be they in print or on the screen have had lesbian subtexts or even lesbianism as their core theme. The most well known of the latter type is probably Vampyros Lesbos by Jess Franco, the embed is above if you haven’t already played the video.

Then there’s the hammer films of the 60s and 70s. But id you want a really stinkingly bad lesbian themed vampire movie you’d have to pick “Barely Legal Lesbian Vampires: The Curse of Ed Wood!“. Judging by its IMDB database write-up it redefines utter crap in the standards of film making. I’d recommend you watch a few minutes of “Plan 9 from Outer Space” then imagine something worse. That would put you off. LOL
