The elderly bat researcher, professor Abronsius and his assistant, Alfred, go to a remote Transylvanian village looking for vampires. Alfred falls in love with the inn-keeper’s young daughter Sarah. However, she has been spotted by the mysterious count Krolock who lives in a dark and creepy castle outside the village…
This vampire movie remains one of the neck-biting genre’s highest peaks. It’s delightful combination of Hammer-style horror and broad humor makes it a joy from start to finish. While there are enough laughs to keep a smile on your face, the scare-factor is also competent, with enough effective chills to please even the most die-hard horror fans.
Drenched in an atmosphere that’s undeniably Baroque, Roman Polanski’s effective tour-de-force is also beautiful, with gorgeous cinematography of the surrounding forests and mountains. The last set piece, a notable scene set in the castle’s ballroom, has to be seen to be believed.
