DIRECTOR: Roman Polanski
CAST: Jack MacGowran, Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, Ferdy Mayne, Alfie Bass
PLOT: Mix of terror and slapstick as a reverered professor and his slightly-simple apprentice travel in Transylvania hunting vampires and seek to help a damsel in distress
MORAL OF THE STORY: Crucifixes don’t stop Jewish vampires
FUN FACT: For the ballroom scene (when the music stops and only three people are visible in a huge mirror despite of a few dozen vampires in the room) Roman Polanski had the room completely copied behind a fake mirror with three doubles acting as the human protagonists.
140-CHARACTER MINI REVIEW: Lavish with beautiful sets, wonderful locations, great cast with genuine scares and plenty of laughs, this is the near perfect horror film
