Cliche example of the “Women In Prison” genre, so bad it’s fun now. While it pushed the boundaries back in 1969, this schlocky film includes the requisite sadistic dykey warden, lesbian prison sex, and women-in-chains escape scene. Sexploitation cinema at its best. Makes a good dyke movie night drinking game – spot a straightboy fantasy [...]

Long before Victor/Victoria, there was First A Girl. In this wonderful 1935 gem, Elizabeth hits the vaudeville big time by being a drag king pretending to be a drag queen. We couldn’t help ourselves, we laughed the whole way through this lovely, silly movie. Great Buddy Night choice.
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! No, it’s not that cult favorite, but you’ll be wishing it was when these two hokey ’script? we don’t need no stinkin’ script!’ excuses for stringing together a bunch of pseudo-lesbian scenes overheat your VCR. Another fun stinkeroo from the great golden era of 1969 dykesploitation flicks, “Kitten In A Cage [...]
Crafty, ruthless and charismatic Irma Vep is not a vampire in the classical sense, but she and her gang of jewel thieves are very much psychological bloodsuckers as they con, seduce and steal their way across the upper-crust landscape of Paris after WW1. An absorbing silent-era classic in serial form. A must for any serious [...]
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

But when Marcia couch-surfs at Terri and Ken’s digs, every girl in the neighborhood, including Terri, is Hot [...]
This Lillian Helman classic deserved its Oscar nominations. Karen (Audrey Hepburn) and Martha (Shirley MacLaine) are the headmistresses at a snooty girls’ school. When a spoiled little brat gets rightfully disciplined, she tells a malicious lie that devastates both teacher’s lives and embroils the town in scurrilous gossip.

Lovable frump Sister George is a huge TV soap star. But when the studio kills her off, butchy, pushy and loudly abusive actor June Buckeridge (Beryl Reid), who plays Sister George, goes spinning down the drain of miserable, raging alcoholic self-pity. Superbly acted, this film offers a cartoony but engrossing slice of 60’s lesbian life.
Quality cheese! This is what REAL hokey 70’s dykesploitation films are all about, kids. In Vampyros Lesbos you have hot stripper dykes, pretty ingénues trapped in mental wards, psychedelic nude frolicking, lots of bloody screams and plenty of screamy blood, and a super-hottie vampire countess running around in a bikini and putting the moves on [...]
