Directed by Stephanie Rothman • 1971 • United States
Starring Celeste Yarnall, Michael Blodgett, Sherry E. DeBoer
Toeing the line between exploitation and art cinema, Stephanie Rothman’s follow-up to her hit THE STUDENT NURSES deconstructs vampire mythology with a subversive feminist spirit and dreamily poetic visual style. California yuppies Susan (Sherry E. DeBoer) and Lee Ritter (Michael Blodgett) are delighted to accept an invitation from the mysterious Diane LeFanu (the transfixing Celeste Yarnall) to visit her secluded desert estate. Unaware that the seductive Diane is actually a centuries-old vampire, the couple soon realize that they are both the objects of her cravings.
