Are you Prepared for ‘Lesbian Vampire Killers’?
Imagine being two lost Welsh men on holiday wandering into a town and selected to become sacrifices to the local lesbian vampires in order to keep the town’s women safe.
That’s the premise behind Lesbian Vampire Killers, a comedy from director Phil Claydon (Alone) working from a script by Paul Hupfield and Stewart Williams (Balls of Steel). James Corden and Matthew Horne (the stars of the BBC series Gavin and Stacey) topline as the would-be victims.
The project has been kicking around for some time, at one point being considered for Hammer Films before it was picked up by Momentum Films. At the Cannes Film Festival in May, Claydon described the film as a comedy horror in the style of an old Hammer classic and told BBC News, “It will have you laughing and screaming in the auditorium.”
Associate Producer Rob Lewis told Fangoria, “I can’t quite believe that what started out as a drunken pub dare is going to be an actual film, with proper actors and everything. Thanks to Momentum, it’s going to be a decently budgeted slice of Brit comedy/horror—with one hell of a ‘come-on’ title.”
The film will open in the UK on March 20 and we will have to patiently wait our turn.
