Vampyros Lesbos (1971)

Exploitation movie, need I say more? In German. Featuring exotic locations, erotic occasions, a countess, a girl, a vampire, a vampire hunter... but with a twist! Is she insane? Who is the queen of the darkness? Does Dracula really play a part? All's revealed as you move along, in a slow and... sensual way.

It's not the type of movie I usually watch, seriously, but it wasn't all that bad. You could either class this as artful and surreal, or as a very B movie. B as in the redness of the paint-like blood that drips down the windows. The characters stare a bit too much, and the camera pans in a bit too much as they stare, and the script feels a bit slow and superficial, but it's not all bad.

It also claims to have 'the hippest soundtrack since Pulp Fiction', which I don't really agree with, though the sound was refreshingly psychedelic and strange. It fits with the scenes.

Soledad Miranda (who died in a car crash shortly after this movie was released, right before a straight to stardom) and Ewa Strömberg (who's Swedish!) played the main duo, and Soledad in particular was just perfect for the countess.

A strange dream? No, the pain will fade, but the memory will remain... for as long as I live.

A confusing, but intriguing flick. If you're into the exploitation or the B-movie genre this might be worth a watch, though I'd rather it was less artsy; more action. OK watch.

 rated 2/5: decent
