Through the unholy rites of black magic, the notorious female vampire Carmilla Karnstein is reincarnated as a luscious young debutant (stunning Swedish starlet Yutte Stensgaard). But when the depraved seductress is enrolled at an exclusive girls' school, she begins to inflame the desires of her fellow students as well as her weak-willed teacher (Ralph Bates). Can these perverse hungers be quenched by the mere taste of blood or will an entire village be unwittingly consumed by their Lust for a Vampire?
Directed by Jimmy Sangster (Horror of Frankenstein, Dracula - Prince of Darkness), Lust For A Vampire is now presented completely uncut, uncensored and dripping with all the violence and eroticism that made it one of Hammer's strangest shockers ever.
Swedish stunner Yutte Stensgaard stars in this Hammer Studios production as the reincarnation of the notorious female vampire Carmilla Karnstein. A follow up to THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, which, like this film, is based on the writings of Sheridan le Fanu. Here, le Fanu's famed vampiress takes the form of Mircalla, a stunning young finishing school student at an all girls' school. Mircalla satisfies her lust for blood by preying on her classmates, all of whom are drawn to her stunning looks. However, Mircalla's sensuality also attracts the attentions of Lestrange, a teacher at the school with whom she falls in love. An entertainingly tawdry Hammer vampire movie, LUST FOR A VAMPIRE is most notable for Ms. Stensgaard's sultry star turn.
