The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)

Directed by Roman Polanski
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Warner Bros.)

Two bumbling vampire hunters, a discredited professor and his dimwitted disciple, travel to Transylvania in the height of winter. They stumble upon an inn where they thaw out and spot signs of vampires. Clues lead to a nearby castle inhabited by a count, his gay son and their hunchback servant. Sharon Tate is a voluptuous vampire victim. Impressive set design and attention to detail by Polanski, but the story moves along at very slow pace. An acquired taste.
