THE VELVET VAMPIRE is really one of the most underrated vampire movies,
and well worth searching for a copy. Not available on DVD, the film's
long out of print VHS tapes have sold for high amounts on eBay.
Directed by 70s cult director Stephanie Rothman, THE VELVET VAMPIRE is
a very low budget, yet very well done movie. I saw it screened in a
theater once, in 1981, on a double bill with DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS. It
was a perfect double feature, yet THE VELVET VAMPIRE does not have
anywhere near the strong cult following DAUGHTERS OF DAKRNESS has
achieved. A young couple meet a beautiful, mysterious woman in an art
gallery in downtown Los Angeles. She invites them to spend the weekend
at her desert home. They both have dreams of being seduced by her, and
the dreams, in one way or another, become a reality. Celeste Yarnall is
outstanding as Diane, The Velvet Vampire, and it always puzzled me that
she did not achieve greater success as an actress.
