Daughters of Darkness (also known as Le Rouge aux Levres, or The Red Lips) is an arthouse style horror movie featuring two lesbian vampires who visit a seaside town during off-season and seduce a man as their potential prey. The surrealistic visual style and elegant performances make this a very worthwhile watch, which stays faithful to vampire legend, maintaining an element of sinister creepiness throughout it's running time. Recommended to both fans of horror and arthouse audiences.
