YMMV: Lesbian Vampire Killers
  • Cliché Storm: The introduction, if nothing else.
  • Hype Backlash: Believe it or not the film actually did get quite a bit of hype in the UK prior to its release — in part because of the popularity of Corden and Horne, and also because of the number of people who thought "hey, with a title like that, it's got to be good, right?" — leading to it taking quite the critical drubbing when it didn't live up to expectations.
  • Inferred Holocaust: Every female child has been turned into a vampire on their eighteenth birthday for a thousand years, do a bit of quick math and that means there were a lot of women who were turned or slain (probably by their own families...).
  • Les Yay: Take a wild guess.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Not really "Unfortunate Implications" because the whole film is obviously full of this stuff intentionally, but...
    • How about the fact that there wasn't a single positive male character in the entire movie? Fletch was an immature, cowardly pervert and Jimmy was a whiny doormat. Paul Mc Gann's character was the closest thing to a positive male character and he was pushing it, as a vicar who swore heavily. Let's not forget the all-male group of villagers who sent the boys and girls to be sacrificed either. Do any of these men come off well compared to Action Girl Lotte?
    • Jimmy has some positive elements (he's not a Jerk Ass and is at least somewhat mature, unlike Fletch), however he spends most of the movie bewildered by what' going on around him. Fletch on the other hand is a bit of a cowardly Jerk Ass who, complaining all the way, is at least able to deal with the situation at hand.
