Lesbian vampire films are a permanent part of cinematic history from Vampyros Lesbos to comedic takes on the genre like Lesbian Vampire Killers. What follows might read as a cross between Sex and the City and Dracula, but be warned; it is true to its base as a horror film. Set in Berlin, the film follows a trio of female vampires living it up in the city. They party in clubs, go shopping and hang by the pool. You know girlie vampire stuff. Then Lena meets group leader Louise and her posse. Louise falls head over heels in love with the scruffy Lena and turns her their first night together. But Lena isn't so sure about the ramifications of the lifestyle; the immortality, the blood, the killing people. Conflicted she enlists the help of a police officer friend, Tom. The battle wages on between the Louise and Lena, with the aid of Tom, in what could be looked at as the ultimate battle between good and evil.
Dir. Dennis Gansel, 2011, Germany, 100 mins. in German with English subtitles
