An eccentric professor and his assistant go to Europe to find vampires. In an attempt to rescue a beautiful girl, they meet the Count's gay vampire son, Herbert, who has taken an interest in the assistant.
This movie became much better once I realized that it was meant to be a satire of vampire pictures. The vampire's son's orientation is not stated, but pretty clear. I enjoyed this movie.
This movie also contains a humorous portrayal of a Jewish vampire.

This is the coolest movie I have ever seen. I know this will sound weird, but I find Mr. Roman Polanski to be pretty handsome. My favourite part of the movie is when the professor gets stuck in the window.

This movie had me laughing - it's a great satire, with weird stuff popping up without rhyme or reason. This is a fun movie to watch, and some wicked characters.

Great fun and a cut above Hammer horror movies. I have seen it many times, and it's a classic. Sharon Tate plays a surreally dreamy beauty, with something of the zombie about her. Polanski's naive schoolboy performance is convincing despite all physical appearances to the contrary and the dotty professor is a complete cartoon character. I almost think of him as hand-drawn. The entire film has something of the cartoon aspect about it, the entire cast is caricature. Its a light hearted horror, but don't expect to fall off your chair laughing, AND don't expect to be scared, once, ever. It won't happen. The film is very pretty and has a rather enchanting feel to it. It makes you smile, beam, but not laugh. And like all the classics, it bears repeated viewings. Perhaps Polanski will be lucky and get the girl in the end (perhaps she will get him). Do watch, it's worth it.

This is one of my favourite movies. The humour is clever and the movie has a wonderful look and feel to it.
The scenes between Alfred and Herbert von Krolock are genuinely funny and Count von Krolock has an air of genuine menace that adds to the eerie atmosphere of the film.
It's one of the must see cult films of the 1960's.
