Quotes

The Old Woman: [singing to Lila] There was an old woman all skin and bones, Ooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. And she did weep and she did moan, Ooooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. She walked on through the streets of town. Ooooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. Where all the dead lay on the ground. Ooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh. Then turned and to the parson said. Ooooh. Will I look like that when I am dead? Ooooh. The parson to the old woman said... BOO!
[Lila screams, the old laughs hysterically]

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.
