Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Harry Kümel directs Delphine Seyrig, Danielle Ouimet and John Karlen in this softcore lesbian vampire horror where a pair of newlyweds share a deserted Belgian resort with an immortal queen of the night.

A lot of arty tease, very little actual sex and even less violence. Until the final five minutes when things kick into bloody overdrive. Seyrig makes the whole listless, wispy enterprise worth watching. Her class and outlandish wardrobe overwhelm the coy seductions and slightly queasy suggestions of the supernatural. As recommended in Mark Gatiss’ brilliant documentary Horror Europa.
