The Vampire Lovers (1970) feat. Mary Beth McAndrews
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.
