Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of Roman Polanski's more overt comedies, this 1966 monster spectacle stars Jack MacGowran and Polanski as a clunky but heroic pair of vampire killers. Called upon to rescue the beautiful and buxom daughter (Sharon Tate) of an innkeeper from a Draculalike bloodsucker, the duo muddle through all sorts of scrapes, the most intense being a scene in which a room full of dancing vampires realize the human interlopers are the only ones in the room who are reflected in a mirror. Scary and funny, the film has some unforgettable set pieces, a terrific score, one of the few records of Tate's extraordinary beauty, and vibrant performances. Not exactly Polanski in a relaxed mode, but clear evidence of his estimable skills as a director of both brilliance and polish. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars LE BAL DES VAMPIRES Oct. 24 2004
Format:DVD
J'ai vu ce film dans les années 70 et je dois dire que pour moi c'est un classique des meilleurs films du genre. Drôle et en même temps impressionnant par l'atmosphère qui si dégage. Un film à voir absolument. Le DVD surprenant en plusieurs langues très intéressant. Très heureux de l'avoir dans ma collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Vampire Classic May 28 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Late one night many years ago I had the pleasure of watching the great Roman Polanski vampire film. Now, many years later, I have added the complete and uncut edition to my collection.
This tongue-in-cheek begins with Professor Abronsius and his assistant (Polanski) arriving in Transylvania. The professor, who has one of the silliest mustaches of all time, is researching the legends of vampires. He is convinced that they really exist and that he can eliminate them. Shortly after their arrival it becomes apparent that there are indeed strange creatures about. All of the evidence convinces the professor that his suspicions are correct.
When the inn they are staying in is hit by a vampire the two journey to a bleak castle. There they encounter the local lord, who is a vampire. The lord and the professor hit it off quite well as both are men (ahem) of learning. During the day the professor and his assistant search for the vampires tomb. They find it but are unable to dispatch the creatures and wind up losing all of their tools in the process. Then night falls.
With the fall of night the two become targets and must avoid their vampiric hosts. then they make a startling discovery. There are more vampires in the castle than just the lord and his son. There is a graveyard filled with generations of bloodsuckers. As the vampires hold an annual ball at which they will feast on a number of locals, the professor and his protégée manage to make off with one of the victims and successfully flee into the night pursued by a hunchback sledding in a coffin.
The film then ends with a very dark note. The woman they have saved makes the complete transition to vampire while they are fleeing and she bites the young assistant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Polanski, Tate, and MacGowran... April 16 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Count Von Krolock(Ferdy Mayne), bears his fangs and licks his lips. His pale skin reveals that he has thirsted through out the winter months in transylvania, Romania and gives a chilling triumphant laugh. He says to both Professor Abronsius(Jack MacGowran), and his faithful assitant Alfred(Roman Polanski), ..."I must leave you now..... See you later gentlemen....MEDITATE... on awaiting YOUR turn"... Then leaves them prisoner at his gloomy castle to await his return later to.......
The Fearless Vampire Killers is a movie you will either love or hate, (I love it). If you like the idea of a european based, cold, snowy, winter where you rug up to a warm fire and heat your own hands with the breath that you huff from within your own lungs and listen to the locals gossip whilst enjoying a warm soup in the santuary of an Inn, then you will like this movie, trust me.
If vampires, and comedy tied in with this, sound appealing, then The Fearless Vampire Killers is your movie. Abronsius and Alfred are travelling to transylvania to hunt down and destroy the vampire race that at this point only Abronsius and Alfred beleive in, but when they arrive at Shagal's(Alfie Bass), Inn then the truth of the village they are accomodated at is revealed, Shagal's daughter(Sharon Tate), is taken victim by Krolock and the two Fearless Vampire Killers set out to rescue her and ultimately mankind. Along the way they perform in a manner that is humourus and woefull. But this movie is not woefull. It is a smash hit that deserves much credit, as it has the "feel", of an old Hammer Horror production with great laughs and a great cast.
The perfect Friday night late movie with no lights on except the Television screen and a warm wood fireplace with just a random hint of crackle as the wood within burns...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wirklich gruselig und manchmal lustig Nov. 3 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Das war der erste Horrorfilm, den ich als Kind im Kino sah. Im Gegensatz zu "Tot aber glücklich" mit Leslie Nielsen ist "Tanz der Vampire" eher ein Gruselfilm als eine Komödie, wenn auch viele Szenen zum Lachen sind. Gute Szenen:
- Schon zu Anfang im Vorspann sieht man Bluttropfen auf psychedelischer Blauer Schrift zu unheimlicher Jazzmusik.
- Die erste Szene mit dem eingefrorenen Professor im Gasthaus, wo er wieder aufgetaut werden soll.
- Die Rolle Sharon Tates: Sie sieht durch ein Fenster auf Polanski, der einen Schneemann baut.
- Die Ehefrau des Wirtes beobachtet ihren Mann, wie er durch das Schlüsselloch die junge Sarah beobachtet, sie will ihm mit einer dicken Salamiwurst eine verpassen und haut aber versehentlich dem alten Professor eins über den Kopf.
- Roman Polanski spielt etwas vertrottelt und schüchtern den Assistenten des Professors. Sympathisch und zurückhaltend.
- Der Diener des Vampirschlosses soll in Wirklichkeit auch so aussehen und ist wirklich zum Fürchten, besonders die Verfolgungsszene, wo Polanski sich auf der Kutsche versteckt um in das Schloss zu kommen.
- Die beiden Spione und Vampirjäger werden in dem Schloss vom Grafen Krolock entdeckt und geben vor, nach Fledermäusen wissenschaftlich zu suchen. Der Graf sagt skeptisch das es im Winter doch gar keine Fledermäuse gibt, ...
- Der homoerotische Sohn des Grafen will sich in Alfreds Hals verbeißen und beißt in ein Buch. Eine nächtliche Verfolgungsjagd durch das Schloss beginnt.
- Das Schloss im Winter und Schnee und die Landschaft der Wälder und Berge sind gut gewählt und ähnlich beeindruckend wie "Nosferatu" von Friedrich Murnau.
