Doesn't Completely Suck, 15 October 2010
Author: kenjha

After being murdered, a lesbian couple turns into vampires who feast on the blood of unsuspecting men. Although the acting is amateurish, Morris and Dziubinska are alluring as the title characters. The setting and cinematography are quite good for a low-budget film and it works fairly well as trashy erotica. After all, what's not to like about a movie about lesbian vampires? Well, for one thing, the pacing is extremely lethargic. It seems like about the half the movie is devoted to scenes of people walking from one place to another. Once the basic premise is established, the plot is less than compelling and it becomes somewhat of a drag.
