Vampire Lovers (1970).

If you need a bizarre B-movie Halloween fix, check out this 70s period piece on horror set in the 1700s: The Vampire Lovers (1970) (you can find the full movie in parts on youtube).  In this film, sexual themes, particularly lesbianism,  underscores the plot where ravenous female vampire seduce young women to turn them into zombie-like slaves, the nervous village men must destroy her to prevent her from taking over the ladies in the town.   The film is said to have been one of the first to link vampirism with sexuality and spawned a host of more famous cult horror films.  It was produced by legendary horror masters Hammer Studios.  


"The Countess is called away to tend a sick friend and imposes on the General to accept her daughter Marcilla as a houseguest. Some of the villagers begin dying, however, and the General's daughter Laura soon gets weak and pale, but Marcilla is there to comfort her. The villagers begin whispering about vampires as Marcilla finds another family on which to impose herself. The pattern repeats as Emma gets ill, but the General cannot rest, and seeks the advice of Baron Hartog, who once dealt a decisive blow against a family of vampires. Well, almost." -Via IMDB
