About The Velvet Vampire (1971)


Directed by Roger Corman protegee Stephanie Rothman and laced with an addictive psych score, this endearing cult item remains best experienced on the big screen in all its gaudy, color-coded glory.

Dune buggies, rattlesnakes and hippies aren’t common staples of your average vampire movie, but then again, there’s never been anything like this outrageous desert paean to bloodsucking and partner-swapping. Michael Blodgett (BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS) is caught between his vanilla girlfriend Sherry Miles (THE TODD KILLINGS) and smokin’ exhibitionist/art gallery devotee Celeste Yarnal, but soon it looks like he might be out of the picture once the two ladies develop eyes for each other.
