Who says Vampires are no laughing matter? It's the living end, a fancy-dress ball for blood fiends in Count Von Krolock's Transylvanian castle. Surely no mortal would be foolish enough to infiltrate this hemogobbling horror of a soirée. But partygoers notice something in the ballroom mirrors: the reflections of humans—vampire killers—dancing among them. Directed and co-written by Roman Polanski (Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby), The Fearless Vampire Killers or: Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are In My Neck (the film’s full U.S. title!) spoofs vampire movies with this droll balancing act of shocks and laughs. Polanski also portrays Alfred, mousy apprentice to a doddering researcher of vampirism (Jack MacGowran)... and the lovestruck defender of gorgeous Sarah (Sharon Tate) when the count (Ferdy Mayne) tries to make her the ghoul of his dreams.
