The Fearless Vampire Killers
Awkward slapstick Polanski film with moments of beauty and humor. Otherwise, kind of tiresome. Strong start but laspes quickly. Some outstanding camera work. Consistent and utter failure on the part of the protagonists frustrates me to no end. Beautiful shot of vampire on cannon fortification. Polanski's odd sexual humor. Sharon Tate looks great as a red headed Transylvanian village girl.
Written, directed, & starring Polanski.1967.
