Lesbian Vampire Killers. With a title like that, you'd expect an exploitation flick from the 1970s or 1980s, possibly without any lesbians or vampires in the movie. This one however is a much more recent flick and it does in fact feature everything the title suggests. It was released in 2009 and it's British. Yes, it's a comedy.
The movie has a very simple premise. Two big city youths (correction, two big city losers) go on a hiking trip to get some time off after one of them gets himself fired while the other one gets dumped by his snobbish girlfriend. Arriving in a small village they soon find out that the village was cursed centuries ago and every woman born in the village turns into a lesbian vampire on the night of her 18th birthday. Not much later they find themselves standing side by side with the old priest of the village as they try to lift the curse and save the world from the ancient lesbian vampire queen.
Sounds like bullshit, doesn't it? Well, yeah, it's campy, it's cheesy, it's just like a good old fashioned B movie from the old days, but that's exactly why it's good. Granted, the humor of Lesbian Vampire Killers will not be appreciated by everyone (the critics hated it and even the imdb score is barely higher than that of the Postal movie, and while we love Postal we understand why it's not so popular), but if you give this movie a chance you might find it surprisingly entertaining. The absurd humor and the over the top low budget violence is sure to make you laugh.
While nothing truly stands out in Lesbian Vampire Killers, the movie is worth watching, mainly for the experience. You'll rarely find such a fine example of an absurd horror comedy in a B movie setting filmed in the 21st century. It's no Army of Darkness by any means, but if you have some time to kill and catch this movie somewhere, give it a chance. You're sure to have a good time.
