B-Sides: They're Vampire Hookers, and Blood Is Not All That They Suck
I don’t recall having ever even heard of the 1978 horror comedy Vampire Hookers until seeing it mentioned in the awesome Filipino B-movie documentary Machete Maidens Unleashed. Something tells me Vampire Hookers cannot possibly be as amusing as its campy theme song.
While this T&A slapstick horror comedy starring John Carradine and Bruce Fairbairn about vampire hookers from the late B-movie maestro Cirio H. Santiago has somehow managed to escape my gaze over the years, the campy late-Seventies folk rock theme song that tells the story of this wacky slice of Filipinosploitation did not escape my ears. When your movie’s theme song contains lyrics along the lines of “Well, they’re vampire hookers, and blood is not all that they suck”, nothing else really needs to be said.
Direct from the credits of the motion picture of the same name, here’s the theme song to Vampire Hookers performed by musicians wrongfully overlooked for a Best Song Academy Award that year.
