Vampyros Lesbos (1971)

A vixen vampiress seduces and kills women to appease her insatiable thirst for female blood.

Undeniably trashy and exploitative, but wildy (and often irritatingly) stylish, tinged in an erotic (mainly lesbian) atmosphere and with a madly off-kilter soundtrack; these qualities make it watchable beyond the tedium and the fact that the cast act as if under hypnosis.

Halliwell (no star): "A dull and inept horror movie made worse by Franco's penchant for meaningless zooms, abrupt transitions and inappropriate soundtravk music; the pace is leaden, the cast act as though they're zombies, and the director resorts to scenes of lesbian lovemaking at frequent intervals."
