Looking for a project after producing the successful Last House on the Left, genre filmmaker Sean S. Cunningham (Friday the 13th) took on Brad Talbot's idea of filming a softcore sex comedy in Florida. When the money disappeared, Cunningham was left to finish the project on his own, and its troubled production is evident in every painfully unfunny frame. Sheila Stuart stars as Emma, a voyeuristic female vampire who orally drains her victims. Detectives Fred J. Lincoln and Ron Browne sleep with several suspects in the course of their investigation and Harry Reems appears as a reporter. Complete with hardboiled 1950s-style narration, the film is apparently intended as a parody, but looks terrible and isn't funny. Except -- it should be noted -- to Australians, because the film was a surprise success down under and nowhere else, even when it was re-released with additional hardcore footage and peddled as porn. Debbie Craven, Cathy Walker, and Jean Jennings co-star.
