Lila Lee: What kind of ceremony? In the church?
Lemora: Yes.
Lila Lee: Baptist?
Lemora: Oh, no. Much more ancient than that. A church that all the others came from. A ceremony that goes so far back no-one knows when it began.

Lesbian Vampire tries to induct young girl into her coven.
14 January 1999 | by (Reno, NV) – See all my reviews

Scary repeated showings on Thing Theater in Chicago during the 70's did their damage to me. Vampirism, lesbianism, witchcraft all done in that plodding, atmospheric 70's way. Eerie.
