Indb 32 11/19/13 2:43 PM The Lesbian Vampire Film 33 ternal events such as the masquerade ball and fireworks display are used to suggest Carmilla’s inner turmoil; such events are also symbols for the film’s repressed lesbianism, which emerges in only a few very restrained scenes. There may be pleasure for lesbian viewers in the discovery of these subtextual lesbian scenes, and in reading them as lesbian. While The Vampire Lovers uses the male vampire hunter as a stand-in for the perspective of the male spectator, Blood and Roses uses a similar voiceover narration device, but here it is the voice of Carmilla herself, telling her own story.
This is certainly true of Dracula’s Daughter, and perhaps Blood and Roses as well. In Dracula’s Daughter, produced in 1936, the spectator’s sympathy is with the vampire (Gloria Holden). With the advent of psychology as a more widely accepted field of science, lesbianism and vampirism are presented as uncontrollable afflictions for which the tormented lesbian vampire herself seeks professional help. The countess tries but fails to escape her family heritage of vampirism; she seduces young women before being destroyed by the doctor who failed to cure her.
