Product Description

Product Description

Fearless Vampire Killers, The (DVD)

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This film is not for everyone. There are people who have no patience for films that don't blast out of the screen at them. If you like Polanski, Hammer horror films (which this film strongly parodies), fantasy/horror style stories (read Company of Wolves here), and can appreciate old fashioned Abbott and Costello style humour, then you'll have no problem settling beautifully into this film. The cinematography is gorgeous, the soundtrack is fresh, the film is slightly out of step with most of Polanski's fare which is neat to see (although if you've watched his old film school shorts you can appreciate the progression a little better). Like any Polanski film it does drag a little in the 3rd quarter, but you always know that you will be repaid in spades with his movies. Moreover, this film does come with a hefty dose of hidden social commentary on the state of Poland and Jewish affairs after the war (you need not see them, but if you're looking they become apparent). Also seeing Polanski act is lovely, and I think one of the strongest points of this film is seeing the beautiful Sharon Tate as she was in the 60s, and watching the looks that she and Polanski give each other grow progressively more intimate as the filming progresses. This is actually my favorite Polanski film, and I thought that I would weigh in an alternative opinion given the other reviews. I'm sure at least one of them is simply a sad American 14 year-old wearing black spandex and wishing he hadn't wasted his allowance renting a movie about vampires which didn't have Victorian-era anemia patients crying with each other and holding goblets. This is a fine piece of cinema, you just need to know what you're getting into.

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.

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.

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...
