Linda (Ewa Strömberg) has some recurring nightmares about a lesbian relationship with a woman she has never even seen (in real life), but when she sees a nightclub performance by Nadine (Soledad Miranda) - basically an artsy striptease -, she knows, Nadine is the woman of her dreams.

Soon, Linda feels drawn to Nadine, both in a metaphorical sense as well as for real, as a certain countess Corrodi needs Linda, a lawyer, to come to her island to help her sort out some inheritance ... the inheritance of Dracula. & of course, countess Corrodi is in fact Nadine, & Nadine has little problems seducing Linda & drinking some of her blood (being the heiress of Dracula, she is a vampire of course) ...

The next day, Linda is found on a beach totally amnesiac, & she is soon sent to doctor Seward's (Dennis Price) asylum. Seward though seems to be not so much interested in the well-being of his patients than in finding out the secrets of the vampires to become one of them - thus he also shelters half-crazy Agra (Heidrun Kussin), one of Nadine's former lovers.

Eventually, thanks to the help of Linda's boyfriend Omar (Andrés Monales), Linda comes over her amnesia & is soon released from the asylum, but it appears that Nadine has become obsessed by her & desperately wants to make her a vampire, modelled after herself ... but Linda refuses. Out of frustration, Nadine kills her parnter on stage during her next nightclub act, to an applauding public.

Doc Seward, hoping to this way lure Nadine to him, agrees to help Linda against the vampire, even fills her in on how to kill vampires ... however, when Linda tries to get to Nadine, she is taken captive by Mehmed (Jess Franco), the husband of Agra, who has turned psychokiller after Nadine turned Agra into a lunatic & now wants to torture all girls that have something to do with Nadine to death. Eventually though, Linda manages to kill him.

Meanwhile Nadine has arrived at Seward's place, but while he hopes to learn the secrets of vampirism, she just wants revenge for turning Linda against her ... & even though Seward knows every trick in the book to keep vampires from himself, he is in the end killed by Nadine's non-vampiric servant Morpho (José Martinez Blanco).

Meanwhile though, Luinda's boyfriend Omar & her psychiatrist doctor Steiner (Paul Muller) have picked up Nadine's trail, & she only barely escapes them. When she arrives back at her home, she is only barely alive ... which is when Linda arrives there too, though, & to avoid becomeing a vampire herself has to kill her ...

Vamyros Lesbos is probably Jess Franco's best film, but certainly one of his most famous.

In all, it is a triumph of form over content: While the story is a barely disguised retelling of passages of Bram Stoker's Dracula, set in modern time, & with lesbian sex thrown in for good measure, the movie's delirious visuals take it onto a level completely of its own, where pulp fiction meets art, the horrific meets the erotic, where surreal & psychedelic images dominate, all helped by director Jess Franco's rich cinematic language bursting with weird set-ups, unusal close-ups, a fascination for the unusual and a camera that seems to be perpetually in motion.

The psychedelic jazz score by Siegfried Schwab & Manfred Hübler (that had a major revival in the mid-1990's & that is featured in 2 other Franco-movies from that time, Sie tötete in Ekstase/She killed in Ecstasy and Der Teufel kam aus Akasava/The Devil came from Akasava) of course only adds to the delirious atmosphere of the film, as does the otherworldly sensuality of Soledad Miranda.
