Synopsis: A vampire slayer enlists the help of a woman, who’s girlfriend has been abducted by vampires.
Two tried and true staples of exploitation cinema are vampires and lesbians. And when combined should be a force to reckoned with. Unfortunately there are countless films that somehow screw up what makes these two elements as enduring as they are. Case in point a film titled Lesbian Vampires: The Curse Of Ed Wood. The film’s opens with a ridiculous opening with an eccentric cap wearing character who claims to be a long lost descendant of Ed Wood. Then the film shifts towards a story about a vampire named Camilla, who’s minions abduct women for her pleasure. That is pretty much it.
Minimal effort has been put into this production. Very little time is spent with back-story.With the bulk of the film padded with lackluster lesbian scenes. In a film with a myriad of problems. Some of the other more notable shortcomings of this film include its painfully tedious pacing, hap hazard visuals, amateurish special effects and very bad performances from the entire cast (who on a few occasions flub their lines). When all is said and done, Lesbian Vampires: The Curse Of Ed Wood is a mess from start to finish.
Lesbian Vampires: The Curse Of Ed Wood is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. This film was shot on video and the majority of this transfers limitations are most likely inherent to the source, instead of the transfer. Colors and flesh tones look accurate. There are no problems with compression and edge enhancement is kept in check.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital Stereo mix in English. There are no problems with distortion or background noise and dialog comes through clearly.
Extras for this release are limited to a twenty seven minute segment titled ‘Never Before Seen Dungeon Scenes’. Which is essentially extended scenes / additional footage that did not make the final cut. This release comes with a static menu that has two options, play the main feature or the bonus content. Overall Lesbian Vampires: The Curse Of Ed gets a well rounded DVD release from Chemical Burn Entertainment.
