In an online discussion about Lilith – where the vampire connection was being discussed – friend and author Doug Lamoreux mentioned this film that he is in, though he said that it wasn’t a vampire film.
Now that depends. There is an inextricable connection between Lilith (Tina Krause) and vampires, drawn pretty much through the media vampire and, I totally agree, that the Lilith myth most people are familiar with is not particularly ancient. However, once a link is established through media, and if that link is repeatedly picked up, then it can’t be denied as a modern phenomenon. Regarding this film it really depends on your interpretation of vampire – this demoness is deemed to have had her soul removed by God and thirsts for what she has lost (the film is alternatively known as the Thirsting) and she is said to consume souls, obliged to take one per day to maintain the lives of her children. This pushes us into an energy vampire area. Apparently she is non-corporeal and must therefore visit her victims through dreams.
