Set in a remote Transylvanian village, the story follows Professor Abronsius (played by Jack MacGowran), an eccentric and bumbling vampire hunter, and his loyal but somewhat inept assistant, Alfred (played by Roman Polanski). They arrive in the village and quickly become embroiled in a series of comic misadventures as they try to rid the area of vampires.

The Fearless Vampire Killers Trivia

  1. The film wasn't officially announced by trade publications until after sharp-eyed college students spotted Kristen Stewart filming on their New York City campus.
  2. While Roman Polanski initially desired to shoot the film at a Swiss castle he discovered during a vacation, logistical challenges led to other Alpine locations and studio shoots in England. During filming, numerous local artisans were employed to craft the multitude of coffins required for the movie. This spectacle unnerved tourists, prompting hotels to erect signs to reassure guests that there was no plague in the area.
  3. For the memorable ballroom scene, where the music stops, and only three characters appear in a vast mirror despite numerous vampires in the room, Roman Polanski had an exact replica of the room created behind a concealed mirror. Three doubles were used to portray the human protagonists.
  4. Roman Polanski expressed dissatisfaction with the American version of the film, "Dance Of The Vampires." It underwent significant alterations, including a title change from "Dance Of The Vampires" to "The Fearless Vampire Killers," extensive cuts of over twenty minutes, and the addition of an animated sequence to clarify the plot, which had become incomprehensible due to the edits. Moreover, the lead actors, Jack MacGowran and Polanski himself, were dubbed by other voices. The film was presented in its intended form under the original title in Europe. However, in the UK, it has been referred to as "The Fearless Vampire Killers" since the mid-1990s, although it remains as Polanski intended elsewhere. The reason for this title change remains a mystery.
  5. Actress Sharon Tate would later marry director Roman Polanski, cementing their connection.
  6. Producer Martin Ransohoff discovered Sharon Tate on the set of "The Beverly Hillbillies" and insisted on her inclusion in the film, replacing Jill St. John, who had withdrawn shortly before shooting.
  7. Sharon Tate's casting was an unconventional process involving awkward dinners with Roman Polanski and a surprise mask-wearing encounter to test her suitability for the role.
  8. The ancestral portraits within the castle include an unflattering depiction of an elderly woman inspired by a sketch by Leonardo da Vinci. This image has long been associated with Margarete Maultasch, the Countess of Tyrol from 1318 to 1369.
  9. The murals in Count Krolock's hall draw inspiration from Peter Brueghel the Elder's painting, "Triumph of Death," created around 1562.
  10. The film's working title, "Pardon me, but your teeth are in my neck," is visible on the poster.
  11. "Dance of the Vampires" was adapted into a musical with direction by Roman Polanski and music by rock composer Jim Steinman. It premiered in Vienna in 1997 and later appeared on Broadway in 2002.
  12. The film concludes with the line, "Your tiny hand is frozen," which is derived from Act I of the opera "La Bohème" ("Che gelida manina") and is also the title of a short story by Robert Aickman.
  13. Roman Polanski's credit as an actor appears solely in the end credits.
  14. A portrait of Richard III, the King of England from 1483 to 1485, adorns the wall in Alfred's bedroom within Count von Krolok's castle.
  15. The film originally adopted a spherical widescreen format, but it transitioned to a wider anamorphic Panavision format during the early stages of production. Consequently, some spherical shots had to be reframed and cropped to match the Panavision format.
  16. Iain Quarrier, who portrayed the gay vampire Herbert, had his voice dubbed by an uncredited Vladek Sheybal.
  17. Actress Fiona Lewis revealed that her co-star Jessie Robins, while sweet, was not particularly hygienic and had an unpleasant body odor.
  18. The makeup for the elderly Dr. Abronsius aimed to resemble Jan Hieronimko, the Village Doctor, from Carl Theodor Dreyer's film "Vampyr" (1932).
