That said, I'll try to do a bit of both, telling you what I thought of the movie myself and how I think it did against what it was trying to do, the latter first.
This movie was not trying to be anything but a fun, campy romp into the world of sensual comedy horror, and I think it scores well with Amazon viewers because it did what it set out to do and with great success. I have certainly been bored to death or disgusted or deeply disappointed by attempts at saucy horror in the past, but this movie had me drawn in from the beginning and I never felt disappointed. It's not erotic, nor does it pretend to be ... it's sexy, saucy, steamy and full of teases, as it intended to be. The casting, writing, acting, effects and directing deliver fun scene after fun scene and the story holds together with an attention to detail and continuity that is not exactly common of this genre. For folks who like this kind of fair, I can see why this flick does well ... it knew it's job and did it really well and with lots of fun energy from the cast.
As for me, personally, I enjoyed Lesbian Vampire Killers immensely. The horror bits were done with a great playful edge, neither too silly nor too serious, the sexy sensuality was eye catching and stimulating without being embarrassing, and the acting/directing was convincing and true to the notion that this isn't a film you're supposed to take seriously. Keep in mind, this is a live action cartoon for grown ups, and a darned well made one. It's supposed to make you laugh and get you a little turned on. Mission accomplished. Will I watch it again, most definitely.
This is an English film which at times follows the same line as Shaun of the Dead but instead of zombies our antagonists are vampires (or more correctly, lesbian vampires). The stars are two blokes, one who just broke up with his girlfriend and another who wishes he had a girlfriend. With the sadness that comes from being dumped, our hero decides they should take a trip hiking just to get away and clear his head, so they randomly pick a place out in the rural section of England. Unbeknownst to our heroes they land up in a village cursed by an ancient vampiress Camilla (see LeFanu's novella) where all woman who turn 18 become walkers of the dead. At the same time our heroes arrive, a group of college co-eds are in the town to write a paper on the folklore around Camilla and her "legacy". So begins a film of many things: a sex comedy, a gothic horror film, a British slapstick movie, and a gore fest, and to a lesser extent, an exploitation film. One would think that a film with lesbian vampires would be no more than exploitation but oddly it is not. Marketing of the film played on this but the film makers only followed the lead while mostly keeping it in the background as they followed the other paths that this film could follow.
I must admit this film was good in every way. First off, the film makers really got a great gothic and horror feel to it that you'd have seen in the old Universal horror films or the old Hammer horror films. The film is pure atmosphere. Second, the comedy works and it works well. There is the juvenile moments (see sword and sword handle) but you'll be laughing out loud. With the character of the vicar playing the film straight, the movie truly worked as British comedies do. Third, not once was I at a point that I felt I should shut off the film and do something else. I was engrossed throughout. To conclude, the film was just plain good fun.
For eye candy, the blood and boobs crowd will be delighted. It has absolutely beautiful women throughout and dressed in revealing if not fully revealing outfits. And the gore is everywhere. Many deaths and they are done quite well with excellent special effects. The whole film is obviously tongue in cheek so the violence is supposed to be a bit over the top. The music is mostly orchestral so you don't get the annoying soundtracks that you would in most films like this. I'd go in watching this film with an open mind, ignoring what the critics have mostly said. You'll come out delighted since it is a fun wild ride of entertainment and truly a good hour and a half of a flick. Enjoy.
