Release date: 1996
So, a year after Red Lips we get Red Lips 2: Bloodlust. It is a little difficult to tell who a lot of the cast are – apologies for that – as character names aren’t given for most and then those that are they are different or unlisted on imdb! Don’t try to use the credits, they are just as bad. The Credits do suggest that this is in memory of Maria Oritz, who died in 2000 – presumably this was added to the DVD.

|Jenny Wallace as Melinda|
She goes to the toilet with a single open-plan cubicle and a blonde woman comes in and offers her addictions far beyond drugs. And the blonde is called... Okay, right towards the end her name is given as Caroline – just to confuse matters. An imdb commentator thought she was Natasha – I suspect not, I suspect that Natasha is another character altogether. Thus I think she is Caroline played by Kashmere but I stand to be corrected.
|Caroline the blonde with Melinda|
|in the graveyard|
Anyway, Melinda begs to be a vampire, Caroline the blonde turns her and they go to a cinema for a hunt and this forces us to watch 15 minutes (or at least it felt like that) of a movie within the movie within the movie – some thing about Russian spies and a patient zero causing people to die in seconds by touch. Absolutely no connection to the film and rather pants. Melinda and Caroline the blonde feed on a patron and that’s the last we see of them.
Absolute nonsense. 1 out of 10. The imdb page is here.
Extra Bit – Red Lips: Eat the Living
So why mention it here. Well you see the wraparound is vampire… its just… well it is the same wraparound that we saw in Bloodlust – with Maria Oritz (whose character’s name is changed to Daphne according to IMDb) and Debbie Rochon (whose character’s name changes to Debbie, again according to IMDb). Absolute filmic self-cannibalism – though given the subject matter of the shorts that almost seems apt.
