Vampyros Lesbos is a 1971 erotic horror film directed and co-written by Jesus Franco, inspired by Bram Stoker's short story "Dracula's Guest".[1] The main character, Linda Westinghouse (played by Ewa Strömberg), is a young lawyer who travels on a job assignment to an island where she meets the mysterious young and beautiful countess Carody (Soledad Miranda).

The film is considered by many to be one of Franco's best and a classic European exploitation film. Its score, composed by Manfred Hübler and Siegfried Schwab, also gained a cult following when it was rereleased. The score of the heavily cut Spanish version (entitled Las Vampiras) was composed by Franco under the name David Khune.
