Lemora – A Child’s Tale of the Supernatural (1973)

Written and directed by Richard Blackburn, Lemora: A Child’s Tale of the Supernatural takes us to the prohibition era where we meet 13-year-old Lila Lee (Cheryl Smith) who has been raised by the Reverend (Richard Blackburn). In church Lila is a well known as a singer and though her extraordinary beauty is beginning to attract attention as well.

One day Lila is summoned by a letter to visit her injured father, Alvin Lee (William Whitton) a gangster, who is close to death so she runs away and takes a bus to where she believes her father is staying, the weird town of Astaroth.

During her journey Lila is tormented by a gang of  mindless vampires who haunt the woods and town and just as all seems to be going wrong she is rescued by a mysterious woman named Lemora (Lesley Gilb), who takes an interest in her.

It seems Lemora is the one who called the girl to her, though whether to protect or to corrupt her remains to be seen. Lemora takes Lila to an old house, where she bathes the girl and tries to soothe her. Exploring, Lila discovers the truth: Lemora is a vampire who feeds upon children! Not only that, Lemora is holding her father captive! Not only that, Lemora is also the unofficial queen of the Astaroth vampires!
