The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire are the first two instalments of Hammer’s Kamstein Trilogy. Based upon the writings of celebrated author J. Sheridan Le Fanu, both films gained immense notoriety upon their original release for their sexual overtones, erotically charged horror and explicit scenes depicting lesbianism.
The Vampire Lovers (1970)
Posing as a guest Mircalla takes sadistic pleasure in exploiting the hospitality of aristocrats and preying on their innocent daughters. Moving within the shadows of midnight she uses wordless seduction to entice the female members of the house into her world of blood and lust.
Lust For a Vampire (1971)
Forty years after her original reign of terror Mircalla is about to be resurrected. Using black magic and the blood of innocent virgins, a group of Karnstein heirs are about to raise her from the grave. Set loose amongst the residents of an all-girl finishing school, Mircella’s thirst for blood merely matches her desire for young flesh.
