Synopsis

In the heart of Styria the Karnstein Family, even after their mortal deaths, rise from their tombs spreading evil in the countryside in their lust for fresh blood. Baron Hartog whose family are all victims of Karnstein vampirism, opens their graves and drives a stake through their diabolical hearts. One grave he cannot locate is that of the legendary beautiful Mircalla Karnstein. Years of peace follow that grisly night until Mircalla reappears to avenge her family's decimation and satisfy her desire for blood.


based on the novella Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu

Okay, here's where the shite really hits the fang! Luckily I only discovered this as an adult, because if I had seen it in the Hammer throes of my early teen years, my prepubescent brain would likely have imploded. Far and away the sexiest of the lesbian vampire flicks of that era and a damned good interpretation of "Carmilla" also. Ingrid Pitt is the stuff legends are made of. It's a shame "Lust for a Vampire" did not live up to the fun that was had with this one.
