Dance with Vampires!
The title “fearless vampire killers” it’s not so good as “Dance of the Vampires”,outside U.S. this is the original title
I always will remember this film as “Dance of the Vampires” ALSO,CONGRATULATIONS to Mr Polanski for the Palme D’ Or, he deserves it(without him just cinema “boring”)
I enjoyed poetic scenes such as like moment in Sarah’s bath comparing the textures of first soap bubbles, then falling snowflakes, and finally crimson blood. when Alfred(Polanski) carries his master across the castle battlements remind me of Polanski early short films. Krystov Komeda’s music has been acclaimed as “the most innovative and haunting score ever devised for a horror movie” by the heavyweight Aurum Film Encyclopedia. Krystof Komeda’s wondrous music, with its weird choral effects and little melodies Komeda’s score communicates the Kafka-like isolation of the setting and the characters
Polanski chose some of the finest English cinema craft artists to work on the film: cameraman Douglas Slocombe, production designer Wilfrid Shingleton Polanski engaged noted choreographer Tutte Lemkow, who played the actual Fiddler in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, for the film’s climactic Danse Macabre minuet.
Sharon Tate as Sarah was delightful(we should remember her in a good way,as a decent actress and person,her scene with Polanski is really cool ,especially “the bite scene”) Jack MacGowran as Professor Abronsius is just great Polanski’s films often deal in contrasts of master and servant, the empowered and the powerless. The supposedly benign Abronsius bullies Alfred for his own purposes, just as the vampires consider all of humankind a resource to be harvested.
The character called Shagal got the best lines in the movie,when A woman thrusts a crucifix in his face, only for Shagal – a Jewish rather than a Christian vampire – to go “Oy-yoy! You got the wrong vampire” and bite her anyway Count Von Krolock (Ferdy Mayne, who plays the Count)he looks really as a Nosferatu or a man that needs Transfusion!.
Also funny is Herbert, the openly gay vampire who is interested in Alfred rather than Sara, the sexual deviations implicit in early Hammer films like The Brides of Dracula (1960) and Kiss of the Vampire (1964) are brought out. Hammer would increasingly exploit this in their lesbian
Comedy Or Horror?
Strange film by Roman Polanski(who costars with wife Sharon Tate) as he plays a young apprentice who accompanies his elderly professor to Transylvania to investigate vampire reports in a rural village, where there lives a reclusive count in a castle, only to find that those rumors are sadly true…
Although this has an effective atmosphere,and attractive leading lady, the tone of this is off-kilter; doesn’t work as comedy, only sporadically as horror, all leading to a particularly(and bitingly ironic) ending. Certainly is original in style, but ultimately unappealing.
