This concluding chapter provides further quotes from director Harry Kümel, which illuminate the prospect of a contemporary sequel to his original 1971 film. It also expounds on the sense of pessimism and cynicism rife in vampire cinema of the 1970s. Daughters of Darkness has an allegiance to many of these films in the way in which it channels the cultural climate of the period and gives vampirism a modern slant. Furthermore, the film's heritage angle directly links to a trend evident in some of the other genre cinema of the period, especially that which critiqued capitalist and class-driven facets of society. The chapter also includes a brief analysis on the lesbian vampire films that followed much later on, into the 1980s and beyond.
