it needs to be stated that there is a distinct lack of lesbianism
here; idiocy in marketing strikes again. But it should also be
stated that, should you purchase a clearly non-pornographic film
with a primary reasoning to watch girls on girls, you deserve
everything you get, or rather, don't get.
What you do get here is some terribly low-budget, yet strangely
watchable—albeit for just the one viewing—nonsense.
The plot in a nutshell, nothing larger required: Ar is a vampire
warrior, whose best friend is one of said monsters, only she,
and her vampiric, dysfunctional family, don't dine on human beings.
Vampire lord Mung, however, likes to prey on his fellow bloodsuckers,
and it's up to Ar to protect her friends, whilst also on the search
for her long-lost sister, Sue, who may or may not have become
victim to one such creature.
There's little blood or horror to be had here; Lesbian
Vampire Warriors is more an action film than anything,
driven by teenage angst. This could easily have been extremely
dull viewing—nobody cares how bored young people are, or
whether vampires can 'feel'—yet surprisingly the script
is occasionally amusing; for instance, had you ever considered
that older victims make for better eats, due to their higher blood
pressure supplying stronger spurts? The props will also make you
laugh, whether this is intentional or not.
The film's strongest point, and appropriately so, given its genre,
is the fight scenes. The martial arts on show are very good to
an untrained eye, whilst remaining on the right side of stylised.
Thus, entertainment to be had, if courtesy of a rather silly film.
