Watch Female Vampire
- 1 hr 40 min
In the early seventies the world had to get prepared for French-Belgian film director, writer and co-editor Jesús Franco. His film The female vampire portrayed a woman in the role of a vampire, Lina Romay played the role as Irina von Karlstein. In this depiction of the bare-breasted countess, the female vampire made it a point to not only drain her targets of blood but also, to sleep with both her male and female victims as well. In this 1973 vampire thriller movie the writer Jesus Franco added a twist to the film that had never been seen before in terms of how the vampire must be fed to survive. The female vampire has a thirst for intercourse and it is by using oral sex to drain her victims of their fluids that she is able to maintain eternal life. In the film as her victims are found dead, totally drained of their bodily fluids, a forensic scientist by the name of Dr. Roberts has to go over the case thoroughly and request the help of his colleague Dr. Orloff to get to the bottom of who or what is draining various people throughout the city of their potency and leaving them dead and dry. It is with great research and slight skepticism that the two finally come to the conclusion that it is indeed the work of a female vampire. The added twist to the story line is the appearance of a man who makes his living as a poet, and searches for the female vampire on a quest to make her his one true love. He wants to be bitten and spend eternity with her as an immortal. A movie well ahead of its time. The female vampire gives way to reveal an entirely different side to ways in which the vampire can devour their victims in order to sustain immortality. The film also stars, Alice Arno, Monica Swinn, Jack Taylor, Raymond Hardy, Luis Barboo, and Anne Watticant. This one hundred and ten minute film was released in West Germany in April of nineteen seventy three. In the year 2000 the film was released to DVD.
