Below are some of my most memorable female vampires. None of them are from Hammer Horror movies as I’ve featured those vampires in my ‘Female Vampires of Hammer Horror’ post.
Lorena from True Blood
We haven’t seen a lot of Lorena in True Blood, but she is one dark and mysterious female vampire that I can’t seem to shake from my memory. Her bloodlust for humankind is insatiable and she loved to bring women as gifts for Bill and her to enjoy in a sexual bloodlust frenzy. Lorena is responsible for turning Bill into a vampire and she longs to walk with him for all eternity.
Did Lorena astral project into Sookie’s dream when she was fantasising about being in bed with Eric (sexiest male vamp ever!)?
Her tears of blood where so striking when Bill told her to leave. I felt sorry for her and I hope we get to see more of her.
Lily Munster from the TV Show The Munsters
The Munsters was one of my favourite TV shows when I was a child. Actually, scrap that last sentence as I still love to watch The Munsters today.
I loved Herman Munster to bits, the way he laughed and cracked jokes all the time. One character that I can’t forget is Lily Munster.
Lily Munster, one of the original sexiest vampires of the 20th century in my opinion. She was the ‘mommy’ vampire to millions and she was a rock to her husband Herman. Yvonne is quoted to have said about the Munsters..
It meant security. It gave me a new, young audience I wouldn’t have had otherwise. It made me ‘hot’ again, which I wasn’t for a while.
Yvonne was one of the biggest beauty queens of the 40’s and 50’s and one of the most beautiful in the world. Yvonne De Carlo was born in 1922 and sadly died of natural causes at the age of 84 1n January 2007.
Grace Jones as Vamp (1986)
Who can forget Grace Jones as the vampire Katrina in the movie Vamp?
In fact I haven’t seen this film for years, but I can still remember how she scared me when I was younger. The only other vampire that scared me more was Mr Barlow from Salem’s Lot.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Grace Jones was an actual vampire. She is big time creepy.
Background of Movie
A couple of college kids scouring the sleazy, local red-light district for a stripper for their party make the mistake of visiting the After Dark Club, where a vampiric Grace Jones is the marquee talent. Keith, Vic, and A.J., looking for strippers for their next frat party, unfortunately happen upon the only strip joint in town staffed and run by vampires. It isn’t long before two of the boys have joined the ranks of the undead, complicating things for their fraternity brothers and their roommates. A kinky, often comedic modern-day vampire tale.
This film isn’t often talked about when we remember good vampire flicks and below is the scene from the movie where Katrina is introduced. Check out the crowds faces at the end of her performance. It’s a scream!
Salma Hayek as Santanico in From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
Who can forget the scene when Salma Hayek, with a large snake is introduced onto the stage to Tito & Tarantula’s song, After Dark?
Salma certainly played the part of a sensual vampire, teasing the men with her seductive charm. It was genius when she poured a drink down her leg to run off her foot into Tarantino’s mouth.
