Too lovable, Hulot-ish, funny characters entertains in Polanski's comedic translation of the Transylvanian myth. The cinematography and art direction make colors come alive.

A good movie

It is another one of these movies which I haven't seen for many years (maybe 20 years ago, as a matter of fact) but I definitely have some fonds memories about this flick and I will definitely check it out again whenever I get the opportunity. Basically, it was the closest thing to a comedy that Polanski have made at the time (since then, he has made the very dark and sardonic ‘Carnage’ which ... read more

Basically, it was the closest thing to a comedy that Polanski have made at the time (since then, he has made the very dark and sardonic ‘Carnage’ which was really awesome by the way) and even though I'm usually critical about comedies, I really enjoyed this one. Indeed, even though it is supposed to be funny, it goes beyond that since the whole thing is quite gorgeous to look at. Furthermore, Polanski has definitely a rather particular sense of humor and the whole thing still remained rather gloomy which was something positive, at least, that's m” read more

""I am a night bird. I am not much good in the daytime." The Fearless Vampire killers was made as a parody of the vampire genre during the height of Hammer's Dracula series in the mid-60's. Despite being a parody, Roman Polanski crafts a film that is dripping with style. The sets and costumes are incredible and every shot is stunning. Even this early in his career, Polanski was surely a master of his craft, making this without a doubt, the most stylish horror comedy ever made. While I almost h"

"17/5 Polanski's strong horror-humor film kind of reminds me of what might happen if Lucio Fulci made a gore-free vampire comedy. Fulci certainly comes to mind when the completely batshit bleak ending rolls around. It's very reminiscent of Beyond at that point. But mostly Fearless Vampire Killers just consists of Polanski and his master, an elderly professor with a keen resemblance to Albert Einstein, running around snowy scenery trying to kill some vampires, while mostly achieving simply gettin"
