„There’s a smell of garlic sausage”
When I think about R.Polanski the first thing coming to my mind is – “the master of fear and horror”, and I knew it that “Fearless vampire Killers” is rare example of comedy by this great director. Yeah, I was worried before seeing this movie, not as much about “geting it”, but more so about simple thing – could this movie be entertaining for “21st Century Boy”.
First thing that striked me was beautiful music by Komeda. I was in total awe. The music was scary, but at the same time so light and funny – just like for a good fair story. And then the beautiful winter scenery that was so fake – almost cartooning. Few minutes into the movie, and I could say “that’s what I call movie poetry”.
The story is so simple. The old bat researcher, professor Abronsius and his assistant, Alfred, go to a remote Transylvanian village looking for vampires. They stay in house where no one speaks about vampires, but the garlic is hanging everywhere. Simplistic story is so right for this movie, because acting, scenery, music, cinematography are all in top shape here. For composition I think this is one of the best movie done by Polanski, next to “Tenant” for sure.
And this movie is also a rare occasion to see Polanski in comedic role. He and Brach make unforgettable duo. I was totally entertain when in came to comedy in this movie, but the thing that surprise me the most was the action factor. There is one scene that is great example of that – when Polanski character is looking through keyhole and is so scared of what he see that his face is screaming “terror”. It’s sure funny, but in a way mad-scary too. And when I think about this movie – this scene sums it up for me.
Its very funny, but little outdated movie. For me one a few really cinematic fairy tales, that keeps magic all the way to the end. Its up there with Repulsion, Tenant, and Tess when in comes to greatest work of this director.
And just think about brilliant ending, so funny, so mad. It’s a shame Polanski hasn’t made another comedy. Don’t get me started with Pirates – the most unfunny movie in history. But “Fearless Vampire Killers ” is movie magic – pure and simple.
Excellent comedy and horror film , compellingly directed by Roman Polanski
The movie centers upon an old man (Jack McGowran) and a young (Roman Polanski) who go to track down a vampire count (Ferdy Mayne) who has abducted a countrywoman (Sharon Tate) and he hides her into his castle.
The film mingles terror , tongue-in-cheek , rip-roaring , humor , action and a lot of amusement . The runtime motion picture is overlong about two hours and some but isn’t boring , but entertaining . Actors interpretation is good , Jack McGowran (being deceased after his playing in ¨The Exorcist¨) is riveting as double of Einstein and Roman Polanski as shy and botcher young is cool . Sharon Tate (marriage to Polanski in real life until Charles Manson massacre) is beautiful and wonderful . Producer Martin Ransohoff discovered Sharon Tate and insisted that director Roman Polanski use her instead of Jill St. John who withdrew shortly before shooting as Polanski had planned .
Originally Roman Polanski wanted to shoot his film on location in and around a castle in Switzerland which he saw during a vacation , but as this was impossible, other locations in the Alps were found, along with studio shoots in England . While on location, Polanski employed dozens of local artisans to make the large numbers of coffins needed in the film . Polanski direction is first-class , Christopher Komeda music (being dead at 31 years after he composed ¨Rosemary’s baby¨ music) is fascinating . Douglas Slocombe cinematography is atmospheric and colorful with a Hammer-alike photography . Flick will appeal to Polanski buffs and horror/humor enthusiasts. Rating 7/10 . Above average , well worth watching .
