A “Vampire Hooker” Bites Into “Shocktober” Day #22! Sex Kitten Lenka Novak’s Cult Horror – With An Orgy!

“Vampire Hooker” Lenka Novak Wants A Bite Of You!

You might not know the name, and I didn’t until recently, but Lenka Novak bites into Shocktober Day #22 as a “Vampire Hooker!”

“Warm Blood Isn’t All They Suck!”

OK, that tagline is not true at all! Well, not until the end of the film, but I’ll get to that in a minute!

“Vampire Hookers” is a goofy, not-all-that-scary entry in 70’s Grindhouse cinema – but since it’s #31daysofhalloween, I was mesmerized by one Actress in particular:

Lenka Novak is in the green outfit – and she was terrific in the movie – and sometimes an average horror film can be made better when the camera loves someone like this camera loved her!

It’s incredible, but almost Lenka’s entire career took place within 2 years! Novak made her film debut in 1977, in a small role as a manicurist in “Moonshine County Express.”

She next popped up in the hilariously bawdy 1977 comedy “The Kentucky Fried Movie”, made by the Zucker Brothers, whose next film was “Airplane!”

Yes, this scene had Novak as one of three Actresses “introducing” each other while sitting nude – if you’ve seen the film, you’ll understand how over-the-top it is!

Lenka then played a cheerleader in the film “Coach” that same year before appearing in Playboy!

Novak was featured in the August 1977 issue of “Playboy” – yes, all of this happened in a single year!

It seemed her career was going in the right direction – being featured in Playboy at that time would have gotten her a huge amount of attention in the business.

Her Film – With Three Titles!

Her contribution to the “Shocktober” season comes as she was one of the sexy bloodsuckers in the 1978 horror film “Vampire Hookers.”

Legendary Actor John Carradine starred in the film, but he was clearly very old – that said, he narrates this classic cult movie trailer:

The movie is a fun “B” movie. Not very well done, but easy to watch, and while there is no real nudity at all for most of the running time, these “Vampire Hookers” suddenly decide to shed their clothes for an extended orgy sequence!

And As For That Name…

One funny aspect of exploitation movies of that era: they were frequently re-named and re-released to grind house theaters, which is why Novak also starred in these two films as well:

That’s right – they are both “Vampire Hookers” as well – just re-titled!

So as you can see, Novak was showing up in all kinds of cult films, and with a Playboy pictorial, you would have thought the sky was the limit!

In 1979, Novak co-starred in “Cheerleaders’ Wild Weekend” AKA “The Great American Girl Robbery”. In that film, however, she is credited as Hana Byrbo.

The film starred Kristen DeBell, who had notoriously starred in the X-rated musical version of “Alice In Wonderland”.

Strangely, that was it! “Cheerleaders’ Wild Weekend” was released in 1979, and then there are NO additional credits for Lenka other than a short appearance in a horror documentary in 1985.

Her next role was nine years later, a small part in the horror film “Slaughterhouse Rock.”


So, What Happened To Lenka Novak?

Well, I couldn’t find out anything about her – did she retire, get married, lose interest in the business?

Well, a reader answered the questions for us!

“Lenka is still alive and well and residing in the Los Angeles area. She is a very active person and enjoys the outdoors, traveling and hiking.

She is 62 years old now and was from Sweden originally. She started her career off as a nude model over in Europe (lets just say at a young age! although probably legal age in those countries.) and appeared in many magazines such as Mayfair and the UK edition of Penthouse. This was several years before her Playboy appearance and was also in several other US nudie mags such as Oui and Juggs.
She got married at the end of the 80s and started a family afterwards and decided to drop out of the the public spotlight.”

That’s the story of Lenka Novak, a short but very sweet run in film!

Here’s a “Cult Scream Queen” with decades of offbeat camp horror hits, and she still meets fans at conventions around the world:

  1. Carradine must have needed the cash in his old age. 🙂
    Lenka certainly had a body that the camera loved!
    Thanks for introducing her, John.
    Best wishes, Pete.
