One instance where the title says it all, Lesbian Vampire Killers finds screenwriters Stewart Williams and Paul Hupfield and director Phil Claydon plunging headfirst into guilty pleasure territory with an unrestrained, sex-laden horror comedy. The picture stars Mathew Horne and James Corden of the UK series Gavin and Stacey as (respectively) Jimmy and Fletch, two buddies who wind up in a British village with dozens of women caught up in a Sapphic vampire curse - driven by a lust for each other's bodies and an insatiable craving for human blood. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Agreeably goofy but surprisingly mild horror-comedy...that's several guffaws short of a laff riot."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"the only thing that made it watchable was its mercifully short length"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"For others just looking for schlocky kicks, this might have a finger-clicking pace and high-gloss finish, but it's no more than a calling card from director Phil Claydon and the script, written by a pair of comedy-sketch writers, is surprisingly dull."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"The relentlessly puerile, juvenile humour of Lesbian Vampire Killers makes it something of a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure none the less."
‑ Colin Fraser, FILMINK (Australia)
"Grab your holy water and your wooden stakes, you'll have a good time."
‑ Joshua Tyler, CinemaBlend.com
"The one dimensional narrative struggles to hit home."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"Sure, the whole thing sets gay rights and feminism back 40 years, but Lesbian Vampire Killers doesn't mean to offend. It is, in fact, all rather tongue-in-cheek, very much in the tradition of Sean of the Dead or Lair of the White Worm."
‑ Cris Kennedy, Screenwize
"It's a 15-year-old boy's idea of a great night at the movies -- sexy ladies in lingerie who get their heads lopped off."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"The humour is deadbeat British, which jangles fearsomely with the vampire theme. The tone is brashly entertaining, as the filmmakers borrow shamelessly from 50s horror conventions"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"The entire project is a crushingly lazy attempt to create a piece of titillating, exploitative horror-comedy that manages to achieve none of its aims. A mirthless, joyless experience, this is a movie with absolutely nothing going for it."
‑ Orlando Parfitt, IGN Movies UK
"The DVD release of Vampire Killers leaves out the 'Lesbians' from the title. Also missing are funny jokes, thrills and engaging characters."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"It may not be smart, but under the right circumstances, it sure can be fun."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"The misogyny is too insistent to be ironic, despite the relatively small use of nudity and gore. The vampires, when slain, spurt milky white fluid rather than blood, a peculiarly unpleasant, and telling, detail."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"Let's get one thing straight. It's not drivel because of its lesbian titillation. It's just drivel. The Beavis and Butthead mentality is just another reason to loathe it, like Page Three of The Sun."
‑ Dave Golder, SFX Magazine
"This British comedy is all Norman and no Wisdom or all Wise and no Morecamble. I have seen Venetian blinds that are funnier."
‑ Victor Olliver, Teletext
