The Vampire Lovers

N.p. American International Pictures [AIP], 1970. Two vintage studio still photographs from the 1970 British-American film.

Based on Sheridan Le Fanu's 1871 novella, "Carmilla." An erotic, vampire horror entry in which a beautiful, seductive vampire befriends a young woman and begins to feast off her blood. The lesbian relationship between the vampire and her young victim concerned the censor, who warned that they might have to cut significant portions before it was suitable for release. However, once the production company made it clear that the lesbian relationship was implied in the source material and was not simply a sensationalist ploy, the film was released uncensored.

Set in Styria, shot on location in England.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.

Johnson and Del Vecchio, p. 317.
