10. Dracula’s Daughter (1936)
This is the direct sequel to Universal’s classic Dracula and follows up immediately where its predecessor left off. We see a dodgy Lugosi lookalike in a coffin and Van Helsing being arrested for his murder. 

9. Blood and Roses (1960)
If Dracula’s Daughter was the first cinematic lesbian vampire, Blood and Roses deserves the accolade for being the first truly sexual vampire movie. This is also the first time that Sheridan Le Fanu’s novel Carmilla was transferred to the silver screen, though in a modernised adaptation. 

8. Any Jean Rollin film
French Director Jean Rollin practically made an entire career out of the Lesbian Vampire sub-genre. With titles such as Rape of the Vampire (1969), The Naked Vampire (1970), The Shiver of the Vampires (1971) or Lips of Blood (1975) he managed to transform a one-track obsession into a lucrative cinematic career.

7. The Vampire Lovers (1970)
Hammer’s The Vampire Lovers is an absolutely outstanding production on every level, featuring a pleasantly straightforward storyline that never descends to the forced plot-twists plaguing other entries in the sub-genre. Aside from expert direction and cinematography, Vampire Lovers boasts the best assortment of actors ever to be found in these movies.

6. Daughters of Darkness (1971)
Harry Kumel’s Daughters of Darkness has the honour of being Belgium’s first – if not only – true horror film. The country not known for producing anything else, ahem, Stella other than beer has come up with a truly outstanding entry.

5. Lust for a Vampire (1971)
Remember this is not a Top 10 of the Most Intelligent Movies Of All Time and, yes, that final song is embarrassing, but when you immerse yourself in a movie marathon with scores of films featuring beautifully shot - but often slow moving - dream scenes, then every once in a while you need a stupid but entertaining Hammer production to keep you awake.

4. Vampyros Lesbos (1971)
Some would argue the case that a Top 10 of best lesbian vampire movies could easily be filled entirely with Jess Franco films and others would say that the terms “best” and “Franco” are mutually exclusive. Still, at least one of the Spanish director’s productions warrants a place in this list, and none more so than Vampyros Lesbos.

3. The Blood Spattered Bride (1972)
The Blood Spattered Bride is one unique gem of a movie, visually stunning, narratively surprising and truly erotic. Alexandra Bastedo  stars in this Spanish production by Vicente Aranda as yet another Karnstein lady who appears in bridal gown in front of newly wed Susan  and encourages her to top off her forever-nameless but utterly sadistic husband.

2. Vampyres (1974)
From the first scene of Vampyres it becomes very obvious that our two leading ladies, played by charismatic and gorgeous Marianne Morris and Anulka, like each other. A lot. They regularly waylay primarily male drivers to tempt and quickly dispose of them by sucking them dry. Rather than sport the usual fangs they do so by cutting their arms open with a knife. 

1. The Hunger (1983)
Most of the movies in this Top 10 are European. For some reason lesbian vampire movies don’t seem to have made a tremendous impact on Hollywood. There may be a message in this somewhere that I have yet to find.
