Fearless Vampire Killers, The (DVD)
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.See all Product description

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...
This movie is billed as a comedy but fails in every aspect of movie making. It is not funny. The plot is non existant, and the music and photography are not just bad, they are awful. The viewer cannot tell night from day, and the story line doesn't help one decide if it is night or day. The acting is so bad that it makes a cartoon look good. The sound is also bad and the dialog is almost impossible to follow.
One star is too much for this movie. Avoid it at all costs.
