Daughters of Darkness (1971) + The Blood Spattered Bride (1972)

A deep dive into two stellar 70s lesbian vampire horror gems.

Part of our new series devoted to exploring the vampire in horror cinema, in this episode we dive deep into two 1970s entries into the very prolific subgenre of lesbian vampire films. The utterly unique Daughters of Darkness (1971) and the Spanish take on Carmilla The Blood Spattered Bride (1972)

Joining us in this episode is editor-in-chief of Diabolique Magazine, author and film critic Kat Ellinger, who has written a whole book on Daughters of Darkness.
