Lesbian Vampire Killers
Promoted as a kind of grindhouse style Shaun of the Dead meets Lesbian Vampires, Lesbian Vampire Killers is a totally over the top, over clichéd, movie length Tui advert style film that wants to be mocked and laughed at.
The main characters in this British comedy/horror are two predictable slackers, the fat guy who can’t get a girl, and the slightly dumb guy who keeps getting dumped by his leeching girlfriend. In a desperate attempt to break free of their hopeless lives, they decide to go on a tramp, and end up at a fabled Inn, where locals give them free beer and a place to stay – in a cottage down the road. Unbeknown to them however, the same locals have just sent a van of hot ‘Tui girls’ there as well, all for the purpose of ritual sacrifice by the local coven of, you guessed it, Lesbian Vampires.
Slow motion Tui-ness ensues with some brief nudity and plenty of splatter as well as a few frights, mixed up with increasingly funny laugh out loud moments. Throw in the local priest who thinks he’s the only person in the world who knows how to slay vampires and a love interest and the formula is complete.
Predictable but funny, Lesbian Vampire Killers is just what you need for some guilty fun on a cold winters night.
Be warned though, if you’re offended by those Tui adverts or by the mere though of lesbians, stay away.
