Lips of Blood [Levres de Sang] (1975, Jean Rollin)
French poet and filmic auteur Jean Rollin spent a lot of the late 1960s and early 1970s churning out films containing lots of sexy lady vampires, for which the world is grateful. His opus of this subgenre is in my opinion 1975's Lips of Blood, which honed the elements of earlier efforts like Requiem for a Vampire and Shiver of the Vampires and crafted a masterpiece of a sort - a film that can be bluntly described as having a lot of beautiful and elegant French actresses wandering around pretty much naked and wearing vampire fangs, but can also be explored on a deeper level.
