Lust for a Vampire

We are talking of matters beyond science.
03 April 2024

The second of the Karnstein trilogy. 40 years after her last appearance, our vampire (Yutte Stensgaard) is resurrected and conveniently joins a school for scantily clad ladies. Things get complicated when a writer (Michael Johnson) shows up and falls for her.

A lesser film than the last in every way. The censors really cracked down on this and there’s little sex or violence any more. For a film about a lesbian vampire, it really does like to focus on its one straight relationship.

The sets are still up to scratch, but the sense of fun has been swapped for a sort of tedious bureaucracy with only the occasional glimmer of entertainment.
