Vampyros Lesbos is actually my first Jes(u)s Franco film. And I was stunned, very surprised. I was like expecting a cheesy European sex-horror film, and o'boy was I wrong, and thanks for that! For Vampyros Lesbos is actually a weird little art-house film, whit a lot of surrealism. And that's maybe why this film has such a bad rating on IMDb, people (like me) thought that it was a horror vampire flick, but get a art-house film instead. For this film probably won't appeal to most hardcore horror fanatics. It's all about soul and atmosphere, like the Hammer films, so if you like them, than Vampyros Lesbos is gold. The stars of Vampyros Lesbos Soledad Miranda and Ewa Strömberg are both great, and plays theirs roles with big credibility. And it's really not hard to see why Soledad became such cult star either, she is phenomenal. I also have to mention the ultra cool soundtrack made by the groovy German duo Manfred Hubler and Sigfried Schwab. Really great soundtrack, one of the music segments in the film were actually used by Tarantino in Jackie Brown.
I liked this film, and I will give it a 8 out of 10. I also looking forward to see more from Franco in the nearest future.
