"Lesbian vampirism is a trope in 20th-century exploitation film that has its roots in Joseph Sheridan le Fanu's novella Carmilla (1872) about the predatory love of a female vampire (the title character) for a young woman (the narrator): Sometimes after an hour of apathy, my strange and beautiful companion would take my hand and hold it with a fond pressure, renewed again and again; blushing softly, gazing in my face with languid and burning eyes, and breathing so fast that her dress rose and fell with the tumultuous respiration. It was like the ardour of a lover; it embarrassed me; it was hateful and yet overpowering; and with gloating eyes she drew me to her, and her hot lips travelled along my cheek in kisses; and she would whisper, almost in sobs, 'You are mine, you shall be mine, and you and I are one for ever'. (Carmilla, Chapter 4). This was a way to hint at or titillate with the taboo idea of lesbianism in a fantasy context outside the heavily censored realm of social realism (Weiss 1993). Also, the conventions of the vampire genre — specifically, the mind control exhibited in many such films — allow for a kind of forced seduction of presumably hetero women or girls by lesbian vampires." - Wikipedia

In Dracula's Daughter (1936)  the Countess Maja Zaleska approaches two women with an implied lust that must have set off some early mid-century Gaydar, subtle as it was. Roger Vadim's 1960 remake of Carmilla  Blood and Roses was less subtle and was one of the first in the genre with nudity and overt sexuality - still not overtly lesbian,

Our first real entries would have to be Vampyros Lesbos (1970) and Vampyres (1974) each featured explicit lesbian content and were groundbreaking for the time.

The Hammer films should also be included here. In particular the Karnstein Trilogy starting with The Vampire Lovers (1970), followed by Lust For A Vampire (1971) and finally Twins Of Evil (1971).  Because of their wide release these were the first introduction, for many, to the notion of lesbian vampires. ...and it wasn't pretty. Viscious and horrific these women of the night provided little if any of the seductive pull of modern lesbian vampires.

Then came The Hunger  (1983).  Suddenly vampires were sexy. The film wasn't set in some gothic manse in the U.K., the soundtrack was sexy - no more pipe organs and the stars? Deneuve and Sarandon left us breathless. Every hot modern vampire movie or series owes an enormous debt of gratitude to The Hunger.

SInce then we have seen a surge in vampire movies and television shows. Some are flat out lesbian oriented, some feature a lesbian subplot and others merely imply such. Some are serious, some are humorous and a few are still campy. Nonetheless, the genre is adding a new title on a regular basis.
