    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 soiree. But partygoers notice something in the ballroom mirrors: the reflections of humans – vampire killers – dancing among them. Director/cowriter Roman Polanski (The Pianist, Rosemary’s Baby, Chinatown) spoofs vampire movies with this droll balancing act of shocks and laughs. He 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. It’s all fang-tastic fun!

    Oh, I remember Playboy magazine showing some on-set pictures of a naked Sharon Tate from this movie. I never saw the film though. As it's Warner Archives I assume the disc will be superb and I just might buy it.

    Best news of the month, so far, followed by Days of Wine and Roses.

    Which doesn't necessarily mean that Amazon will be shipping it by that date. ;)

    You got that right! Hell, the way it's going, you might get it by Thanksgiving. The only problem with that is you miss enjoying it during the Halloween season.

    I've had pretty good luck with Target on Warner Archive titles. But, when in doubt, it's best to order directly from the source, even if it's not the most economical option.

    I could wait a little longer for their titles. The problem I have with Amazon is the long delays. I can live with a week or so, but not several weeks.

    I have never found this film to be laugh-out-loud funny, but it does bring a fairly consistent smile to my face. Polanski himself does some amusing slapstick as the buffoonish sidekick, and the doomed Sharon Tate is gorgeous, but as far as being a comedy goes, it's just okay...tries too hard, in my opinion, not unlike Polanski's later PIRATES. But the cinematography and atmosphere are terrific and the music score kinda cool, so overall I find this film to be fun every so often. I look forward to the coming Blu-ray, as the import I currently own has serious PQ problems.

    Comedy is always so subjective. There are so many scenes in this that I find laugh-out-loud funny. Yet I just barely smile through It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and I know tons of people who roar with laughter at that.
