Storyline

In the Madeira Island, the mute Countess Irina Karlstein is the last descendant of the evil Karlstein vampire family. She lives with her also mute servant and seems to be nymphomaniac, seeking for sex most of the time without satisfaction. Irina likes oral sex with men and women to suck off not only semen, but apparently also blood, killing her male and female lovers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Lina Romay is the female vampire!
1 October 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Female Vampire (1973) follows a day in the life of a vampire named Irina (Lina Romay). Even though she's a mute, she doesn't need the spoken word to communicate how she feels. This film is sexual charged retelling of the vampire legend. Irina is a smoking hot vampire who swings both ways and has an unusual taste. If you want to see something extremely different then watch Female Vampire. I could tell you more but where's the fun in that!

Lina Romay has to be the sexy vampire to ever grace celluloid. Her presence is truly amazing. She has a beauty that is indescribable. I love this movie. I usually don't watch vampire movie (except the Hammer films, of course) but this one had me captivated from the beginning until the end. There's a funny part at the start of the film when Miss Romay bumps into the camera. I love this movie and I can see why Jesus Franco made her his "assistant" after this film. Afterwards the two became an unstoppable team. Even today they're still making films. Long live team Franco/Romay.

Highly recommended.
