Episode 38: Sapphic Vampire Movies, feat. Luana Saitta of Defend Your Trash Movie
LOVE WILL HAVE ITS SACRIFICES. NO SACRIFICE WITHOUT BLOOD. BEWARE THE NIGHT AND YOUR OWN GAY PANIC, BUT, ALSO, HUBBA HUBBA!
Wash your neck, prep your veins, and get ready to donate your plasma to the blood-sucking daughters of Sappho. It’s time to explore the sexy, violent world of lesbian, pan, and bisexual vampires on film. Join Gabe and returning guest Luana Saitta of the Defend Your Trash Movie and Monster Island Commentaries podcasts as they explore a specific period in Sapphic vampire movie history (1970 to 1983) and four representations of the surprisingly prolific genre: Roy Ward Baker’s The Vampire Lovers (1970), Harry Kümel’s Daughters of Darkness (French: La Rouge aux Lèvres, 1971), Jean Rollin’s The Living Dead Girl (French: La Morte Vivante, 1982), and Tony Scott’s The Hunger (1983).
