Roman Polanski's first USA film a spoof on vampire movies that works even in todays obsession with"serious" vampire flicks. Its all there, the village folk cowered into submission by the "Count" in his Castle, the Professor, with his assistant ( Polanski), visiting to expose the vampire, the snow driven night scenes around the Castle. It does not have the Computer enhanced flying scenes or the "running fast" of modern vampire films but it is all the better for it. Sharon Tate, the glorious redhead beauty, stars, later to be cut down by Charles Manson.
Wanted to see it again after 30 years but was disappointed. It was't as funny as I remembered it.
Hard to believe that this was made by Roman Polanski who is responsible for later masterpieces like "Rosemary's Baby" and "Chinatown". Very disappointing to re-visit this but interesting to see one of Sharon Tate's few screen outings.
