[Horror Queers Podcast] Entering the World of Hammer Horror with ‘The Vampire Lovers’

Baron von Hot Dog.

After having some goofy fun revisiting the 2000 horror film Urban Legends: Final Cut, we then had a surprisingly serious discussion over Paul Verhoeven’s misunderstood flop Showgirls (yes, we know this isn’t horror, but give us a break, will ya?). Now we are closing out September with our first foray into Hammer Horror: Roy Ward Baker‘s 1970 lesbian vampire film The Vampire Lovers!

The film sees seductive vampire (with lesbian tendencies) Carmilla Karnstein (Ingrid Pitt) target the beautiful and the rich in 19th century Styria.

Episode 93 – The Vampire Lovers (1970)

“On this week’s episode, we’re making our first foray into Hammer Horror with a journey to 19th century Styria in Roy Ward Baker’s The Vampire Lovers. Joining us for the discussion is Scarred for Life co-host Mary Beth McAndrews, who brings her own passion for vampires to the episode.

After a brief crash course on Hammer Horror, we’ll laud the performances of Ingrid Pitt as the thrice-named anti-heroic vampire Marcilla/Carmilla/Mircalla, marvel at the unusual vampire lore (shrouds?!), and lament the lack of any interesting male characters (though that is undoubtedly the point).

Plus, Mary Beth leads us in a frank discussion of bisexuality and the vampire sub-genre’s relationship to it, which isn’t too shocking considering this film is sexy af.”


Cross out The Vampire Lovers!

Coming up on Wednesday: Now that we’re in October, we’re kicking off the month with something a bit more light-hearted in Todd Strauss-Schulson’s 2015 meta-slasher The Final Girls!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
