Of course the succubus myth (and the male equivalent of incubus) has a great deal of crossover with the vampire. A demon, the succubus sleeps with unwary men and, in many versions of the tale, feeds through the act. Be it through the semen or life energy, there is something vampiric about this.
Let’s stop for a moment as this scene underlines the difficulty in pinning the film down. She is a succubus and so acts in a sexually powerful way – but then, more than often, so does a vampire. The shower pours blood, which would seem a waste for a vampire (unless it was of the blood bathing type) but such symbolic motifs do run through some vampire films. There has been heavy petting but no sex and the temptress, at the very least, eviscerates the man. There is no apparent feeding through sex in this scene.
