The Lesbian Vampire Killers plot revolves around two down-on-their-luck slackers, Fletch and Jimmy — played by Corden and Horne — who decide to temporarily escape their woes and go on holiday to a remote village, only to find that all of its women have been enslaved by lesbian vampires due to an ancient curse. Things go further awry when they hook-up with a bus-load of attractive foreign female history students and run in to the local vicar (played by Paul McGann), who seems to think that Jimmy (Horne) is the long lost descendant of a local vampire slayer.

It is set in Norfolk, but was filmed outside London on location at Luton Hoo and in Three Mills film studios in Bromley-by-Bow.

The film is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the classic Hammer Horror films and was originally slated to be the first “new” Hammer film. This, however, did not come to pass and it was ultimately Alliance and Momentum Pictures along with AV Films who finally greenlit the project.
